Description:The Award Ceiling for Year 1 is 0 (none). CDC anticipates an Approximate Total Fiscal Year Funding amount of $3,000,000 for Year 1, subject to the availability of funds. This NOFO will focus on EMR system utilization by ensuring accurate and timely data capturing, data cleaning and management, analytical database development, data analysis, timely reporting, dashboards development and strengthening data use at national, district and facility levels for improved decision making. CDC with financial support from PEPFAR has supported Ministry of Health (MoH) since 2004 in implementing point of care (POC) electronic medical records system (EMR) and electronic mastercard system which captures data retrospectively. Together, EMR systems are implemented in 721 facilities across the country. The EMRS provides a large dataset of individual-level data. These data are not adequately used to inform programmatic activities in health facilities. The recipient will thus support implementation of systems that promote data use through transformation of data from a central data repository to data structures that are accessible and analyzable. For the most part, the current data structure favors patient management, but through this NOFO the recipient will incorporate structures that ensure data are also utilized for other purposes. In order to improve the use of information at health facilities, analytics and dashboards that are linked to facilities will developed. The NOFO will also promote EMR system utilization at all levels to ensure health providers builds a culture of electronic data capturing as a preference against paper systems.
