Facilities Commodity Stockout Reporting Dashboard
USAID Integrated Health Program
March 26, 2022
This system was developed with the aim of eliminating commodities stock out in health facilities, and to improve the quality of care by enhancing the movement of commodities to intervention sites as at when due.
A digital data collection tool was first developed, and the State team trained on using it for reporting stockout or possible stockouts during mentoring visits. The data at the backend was then linked to Tableau to enable relevant team members and stakeholders to make fast decisions by ensuring such facilities need are met. It also helped to track the volume of patients coming into such facilities, therefore helping the relevant stakeholders to plan ahead for the dissemination of commodities to facilities affected. This immensely eliminated stockout within the program health facilities and improved quality of care across all indicators.
