1. Purpose of the Consultancy
2.1 The SRHR Project/Initiative
Universal Health Coverage (UHC) is based on the principle that all individuals and communities have equitable access to their needed health care, in good quality, without suffering financial hardship. UHC helps drive better health and development outcomes. Achieving UHC by 2030 has been endorsed as one of the Targets of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).
Pakistan is progressively moving towards phased implementation of UHC Benefit Package of Pakistan (Essential Package of Health Services and Inter-sectoral interventions) that has included SRHR interventions. Islamabad Capital Territory implemented the UHC benefit package defined at federal level on pilot basis in 2020. Electronic data management system is a key component of the UHC benefit package implementation.
As part of the UHC benefit package implementation, the Government Ministry of Health initiated the integrated electronic data management system (EDMS) with support from WHO in ICT as a demonstration district in the pilot implementation of the defined UHC package in 2020. Considering the workload in health facilities, filling information in registers is a challenge and contributes to gaps in hospital data availability critical for decision making. It is against this background that the Ministry of National Health Services, Regulation & Coordination (MoNHSR&C) with the support of WHO, therefore, would like to roll out electronic medical records system in selected facilities in 6 priority UHC districts in all provinces to facilitate collection of vital data in an easier manner as implementation of UHC benefit package is being rolled out in all provinces.
