Functional and Non-Functional Requirements
PEPFAR - CDC is funding the Technical Assistance Program (TAP). The TAP project Goals are as follows:
- Develop and implement sustainable HIS to enable advances in clinical care, patient monitoring, care coordination, program monitoring, and case-based surveillance.
- Develop and support a community of HIS experts and practitioners that share resources, expertise, best practices, documentation, and solutions across the PEPFAR community.
- Develop workforce capacity, governance structures, policies, and guidance to support HIS.
The TAP Project is divided into three components: Data Integration Strategies and Implementation (DISI), OHRI, and Security and Governance policies. This document describes the functional and non-functional requirements for the DISI component of the TAP project. The goals for the DISI component of the project are as follows:
- Integrate data from different sources and levels to generate value for stakeholders
- Process for bringing data together- standards, architectures (data, system, exchange), policies, and guidelines
- Data sources - Systems, jurisdictions, data sharing
- Benefits resulting from data integration as well as risk mitigation - improved data quality, analytics, and visualization, data use
- The people- patients, program users, ministries of health, and agencies
The DISI use cases include HIV Case-based surveillance (CBS), Patient Care, and HIV Program Monitoring. The first phase of the DISI project will be limited to CBS. In subsequent phases of the project, patient care and program monitoring will be included in the data centralization initiatives.
