The mapping and visualisation of consolidated data can be done in several ways:
- Data consolidation teams can use PowerPoint templates and enter consolidated evidence and visualised data (e.g., graphs produced in Excel or statistical software packages) under the relevant action domains. If done manually, areas of concern (e.g., performance gaps, etc.) should be highlighted and described. Some examples can be found below.
- Data consolidation teams can use a PCF dashboard to visualise and interpret data along the care continuum. The dashboard can be configured to automatically highlight potential issues against preset standard values.
Data should be mapped across the TB care continuum (patient journey):
- Option 1: Data consolidation teams can use the DHIS-2 PCF data analytics dashboard – developed to support the data consolidation process.
Option 2: Data consolidation teams can build their own dashboard compatible with their HMIS system. They can be as simple as an Excel-based sheet with automatic visualisations or more complex using a database entry format linked to some form of automated data visualisation tool (we hope to release a blueprint and guidance for such developments in the next PCF project phase).
