Standards for Integration of HIV/AIDS Information Systems into Routine Health Information Systems


This guide describes approaches and standards for integration of vertical information systems with the RHIS. It uses HIV/AIDS information systems primarily, as examples of best practices and what is required for achieving integration with RHIS. These principals are cross-cutting, however, and can be applied to nearly any disease or program-specific information system. General aspects of information system integration are first presented, followed by the case of HIV/AIDS integration. The concept of interoperability as a method for achieving the goals of integration is then presented, with generic models and country examples of different types of integration. JSI, 2015.
