Of course! We are just scouting around regarding some early interest around Bahmni. But we would love to keep things up with the large amount of work that’s been done already in Uganda. Thanks for suggesting this.
@mksd Good to hear this, with Support from a development partner, a four pronged HIV intervention strategy is being implemented at Uganda Prisons Service to link all HIV clients to HIV services; on admission to the prison ,during inter-prison transfers,during community re-integration after release.
Using an OpenMRS implementation , PrisonsEMR since 2015 (OpenMRS Platform 1.9 now using 2.0) , but customised to suit the uniqueness of Prisons Health facilities countrywide for linkage as they are transferred from one prison location to another .
The system linkage strategy provides an opportunity to track and link the clients all with a unique Prison Identifier back to care as they move from one Prison Health facility to another countrywide.
We have successfully deployed on a number of remote Prison Sites in rural Uganda , and they can easily be accessed over the Internet( with basic Internet connectivity as low as 3G now routing for zero rated on a dedicated network) .
Hi, thank for your question,i hope i got you right, but the Staff are actually able to access their facilities over the Internet, (VPN)one of our main objective is to be able to track clients to ensure continuation of care,control double counting etc in real time as they move from one prison location to another .
Its centrally installed, and accessed from any location , as long as u have the credentials as a certified user for security purpose
