electronic Community Health Information System (eCHIS)


The electronic Community Health Information System (eCHIS) is a high-priority initiative, demonstrating the Ethiopian Ministry of Health’s (MOH) intentions to further use technology and data to improve service delivery starting at the community level. The eCHIS digitizes the family folder and CHIS content into a mobile platform for use by Health Extension Workers (HEW) around the country. The mobile platform and corresponding clinical, reporting, and system management tools are expected to promote access to and use of data about community service delivery within the Health Extension Program, supporting HEW responsibilities and equipping decision-makers with relevant, high-quality data to advance the health system in Ethiopia.
