The free DHIS2 software now supports national-scale hypertension control programs!
With the new DHIS2 Hypertension Control Package, health care workers at the primary care level use the standard DHIS2 Tracker Android application to manage individual patients’ blood pressure measurements, record medications and schedule follow-up visits, saving time and reducing paperwork and loss to follow-up.
The data recorded populates a dashboard in real-time, showing key indicators for hypertension control program management, including how many patients have their blood pressure controlled and how many are returning for care regularly.
The package was developed by the Nigeria HISP team for the Nigeria Federal Ministry of Health, in collaboration with University of Oslo, WHO Nigeria, and the World Health Organization. Resolve to Save Lives is a supporting partner.
