Improving Patient Tracking Mechanisms at Ruli District HospitalJanuary 2013 - April 2013
Our partnership with the Ruli District Hospital (RDH) and the Ihangane Project (TIP) is to improve healthcare service delivery and operations in Rwanda’s Gakenke District. The Ihangane Project is invested in the improvement of health in the Ruli area, through the provision of material, clinical, and technical assistance to the Ruli District Hospital Health System and Ruli community members. The project scope focused on patient tracking, in order of priority, patient tracking within the hospital, patient tracking between the health centers and the hospital, and patient tracking at the health centers, which did not currently track patients at all. The team provided recommendations on understanding staff capacities, patient-tracking process improvements and implementation.
