Trauma e-Registry
last updated 10-04-2016

Overview

Injury and violence are major public health issues, accounting for over 5 million deaths a year and many other non-fatal outcomes. The Injury data systems, at the country level, are a key foundation of the public health approach for preventing injuries. To Promote wider and more standardized data collection for injury surveillance, and to promote best practices and policy-level changes for system-wide improvements in care of the injured; PNIPH is leading an initiative to establish the National Injury Surveillance system with close cooperation with the Ministry of Health.

Progress and Improvements

In order to establish a minimum dataset to facilitate the establishment of trauma e-registry, the PNIPH:

  • Prepared the List of Injury Surveillance indicators;
  • Prepared the registry forms for both new visits and follow-up visits.
  • Started the pilot implementation in two governmental hospitals.
  • PNIPH is now building an electronic patient base registry using a web application technology.

Human Resources for Health Observatory eRegistry

The rapidly increasing population of Palestine increases the demand for Human Resources for Health (HRH) availability, specializations, and the delivery of quality health care services. There is very limited assessments of the needs, shortages and excess of different professions, and with the human resources departments at the different stakeholders acting as a record keeping and tracking department, rather than an assessing, projecting and planning departments for the HRH of their respective institutions, there is no national consensus to assess, compare and strategize for HRH needs, utilization, and distribution nationwide. Discrepancies in the HRH numbers collected from the different stakeholders shed the light on the improper and incomplete systems of HRH management, and a lack of a solid regulatory body to establish a consensus for HRH availability and management. The establishment of the national HRH observatory will facilitate production, sharing and use of quantitative and qualitative information on the Human resources for health in order to support the development and implementation of proper HRH policies and plans.

Cause of Death e-Registry

The Cause of Death Registry is a vital national statistics database of deaths, underlying and contributing causes of death in Palestine. The database is located at the Palestinian Health Information Center at the Ministry of Health and was legally established in 1994 by the Civil Registration Law of 1966. Based on the recommendations of the National Health Information System Assessment and Strategy, conducted by MoH in 2010-2012, there is a real need to improve the national database of mortality for planning purposes, modify the current death notification form and build the capacity of staff responsible for filling the death notification forms. Therefore, the PNIPH is following up these improvements.
