Info portal: PSI’s DHIS2 landing page has a new look.
This DHIS2 PSI landing page is now multipurpose. Not only is it PSI’s DHIS2 login page users are accustomed to, but it is also a community sharing tool. Partners and stakeholders in the DHIS2 community can share how PSI programs are using DHIS2 through this portal. This includes sharing PSI’s DHIS2 friendly apps used to make it easier to collect, manage, and make decisions based off of data. The global DHIS2 community accesses information on this site to see PSI’s work in action, and PSI users can log in to their accounts to engage with their data.
The upgrade from DHIS2 version 2.22 to 2.25: Moving to DHIS2 2.25 is our biggest upgrade yet. These new features will help teams to engage with your data. These key features can be found here:
Data use comes to life: Have a conversation with your team around your data. The interpretations feature is now available. This feature lets users have a conversation about what their dashboard is telling them in DHIS2. Imagine a hybrid of DHIS2 dashboard and Facebook’s feed: Team members can comment on dashboards showing program performance and
you can join into the conversation to share your interpretation of what the data is saying, explanations for performance levels, and team encouragement. This feature includes dashboards, data for decision making, and team building in one tool. PSI and the University of Oslo jointly developed this feature and it’s available for all DHIS2 users.
In 2.25, you can embed data to action frameworks right into your dashboards. This centers the conversation on goals and action points. There are several improvements to favorites that make it easier to create, save, and share your dashboards.
We continue to develop the mapping and analytic features in DHIS2 — check out DHIS2’s GIS improvements. Event clustering lets you analyze millions of events in just a single map, save events by layers and search by places and regions. DHIS2 now supports elevation, population density and nighttime lights layers from Google Earth Engine.
It’s a big migration to 2.25 and we’ve done the most extensive testing to date for an upgrade. Given the complexity of PSI’s DHIS2 implementations there may still be some bugs. You can check out the list of known bugs below with some recommended workarounds, as well as features that were present in 2.22 but have been removed or altered in 2.25.
We’re here to help you through this migration and for any of your DHIS2 needs. As always, if you have any questions please send us a ticket using the DHIS2 Help Desk.
Thanks and enjoy the new DHIS2 2.25.
