HIFIS 4 Health Check
So, you’ve been using HIFIS 4 in your community for some time, and are now wondering: “are we doing this well?”
Every community makes different choices when implementing HIFIS 4 so there’s no perfect test to answer that question.
To help you find out if you’re on the right track, ACRE Consulting and Built for Zero Canada have partnered to create the HIFIS 4 Health Check. This is a high-level view of your database with one key principle in mind: the better the data going in to HIFIS, the better the data will be coming out, which will result in HIFIS having greater value to the community, which will result in people wanting to use it more frequently, which means you will have better data going in, even better data coming out, and even more value to the community.
The HIFIS 4 Health Check is designed to help communities who are using HIFIS 4 to use some specific indicators to get an overview of how the software is working locally. Because lots of communities might use or focus on different parts of the software, we are strategically looking at the software from a very high level. There are 10 areas that are covered in this check-up:
- Daily Usage
- By-Name List
- User Accounts
How does it work?
Step 1: Questionnaire
The first step in the process is for you to complete a questionnaire that asks you some high-level questions about your system and community, your capacity and how you are supporting HIFIS 4 locally. This step should take 5-10 minutes to complete.
Step 2: Data Extraction
Step 3: Training Questionnaire
This is the final step for you. You’ll use the 5 users generated in Step 2 and investigate the training they received, and answer a few other questions about your training processes. This step can be very quick if you have excellent training records, but it could take you a little longer than the other steps as you will need to look up some information.
Step 4: Results
Finally, you sit back and wait as we put together a report card for you, highlighting areas where you are doing well and areas where you could improve. Optionally, you can schedule a follow-up appointment with us to discuss the results.
