Aggregation engine for the patient/community data

Registered by Lars Helge Ă˜verland on 2009-11-19

DHIS 2 now captures patient data values. Having such data available in the DHIS would make it very simple to generate detailed aggregated/routine (by facility, period, data elements) information about maternal deaths, such as "Maternal deaths from home delivery", "Maternal deaths from inst. delivery", "Maternal deaths with direct cause eclampsia", "Maternal deaths referred from other health facility". Such routine data elements can be defined by using expressions with criteria (queries) on top of the patient-level data and then be be generated on a routine basis (e.g. every month) and then be stored as normal data values completely integrated with the other routine data captured in DHIS.

An example of an expression for the routine data element "Maternal deaths with direct cause eclampsia" could be:
Patient data element "Direct cause of death" = "Eclampsia".
Eclampsia is one of many predefined values for the patient data element called "Direct cause of death".

Generation of routine data (from patient-data) would then group patient data by month (or other interval if desired) and orgunit and then on the defined routine data elements, e.g. count how many maternal deaths records where the "Direct cause of death" is "Eclampsia" for each orgunit and month.
