St. Joseph’s ART Clinic, Sibasa, Diocese of Tzaneen
18th October, 2012
Tony Linden of the SACBC/CRS ART team visited St Joseph’s ART Clinic and reported on the installation of the Tier.net system there to manage patient data.
Today was another milestone is the transitioning of patient data to the DOH Tier.net system. All the data from the St. Joseph’s Clinic in the Vhembe distict in the province of Limpopo was exported from the current Patient Data (PDS) System of the SACBC ART programme into the Tier.net system. The benefits of this successful process is that the system was ready to go live the moment it was installed on to the site computers, and no back capturing of patient data was needed.
The representative from the Department of Health, Mr Nicolas Rahlinala was present to oversee the process and to officially take over the system. This is another milestone for the DOH tier.net project in this province.
The process of networking the system was completed and Nicolas spent time taking the admin ladies through the Tier.net process of capturing new patient data into the system.
St Joseph’s will continue to provide their reporting direct from the PDS to SACBC/CRS but will also now start capturing direct into the Tier.net system with the objective of being able to report directly to DOH via their system.
