ORGANIZATIONAL FACTORS IN DETERMINING DATA QUALITY PRODUCED FROM HEALTH MANAGEMENT INFORMATION SYSTEMS IN LOW- AND MIDDLE-INCOME COUNTRIES: A SYSTEMATIC REVIEW
Thein Hlaing and Thant Zin
The Health Management Information System (HMIS) is an essential core component in framing the national health system. To operate six core components synchronically and to manage them successfully inside the health system, HMIS and communication are also placed centrally. However, the unworthy problems of HMIS data have been significantly affected by several characteristics. Among these characteristics, the organizational factors need to be considered as important issues. This systematic review aims to examine what organizational factors are determining the HMIS data quality in LMICs after 2005. Two independent reviewers selected 38 eligible primary published papers from 22 LMICs through three popular online sources: MEDLINE and PubMed, HINARI, and Google and Google Scholar. This finding mainly highlighted that weak organizational structuring and processing, less organizational learning development regarding HMIS, unavailability of HMIS resources, poor governance, and political issues impacted the HMIS data quality in LMICs.
