The Field Health Service

Information System
(FHSIS)
The Field Health Service Information
System (FHSIS)
• The Field Health Service Information System
(FHSIS) is a major component of the network
information sources developed by the
Department of Health (DOH)to enable it to better
manage in nationwide health service delivery
activities.
• The FHSIS is intended to address the short term
data needs of DOH staff with managerial/
supervisory functions in DOH facilities and in
each of the program areas.
What is the Field Health Service
Information System (FHSIS)
• It is a network of information.
• It is intended to address the short term
needs of DOH and LGU staff with
• managerial or supervisory functions in
facilities and program areas.
• It monitor health service delivery
nationwide.
What are the objectives Field Health
Service Information System (FHSIS)?
• To provide summary data on health service delivery and
selected program accomplishment indicators at the
barangay, municipality, district, provincial, regional and
national levels.
• To provide data which when combined with data from other
sources, can be used for program monitoring and evaluation
purposes.
• To provide a standardized, facility-level data base which can
be accessed for more in-depth studies.
• To minimize the recording and reporting burden at the
service delivery level in order to allow more time for patient
care and promotive activities.

COMPONENTS OF THE FHSIS

• Output Reports,
Importance of FHSIS

• individual/Family Treatment Records;


• Target/Client Lists;
• Reporting Forms; and
• Output Reports,
COMPONENTS OF THE FHSIS

• Helps local government determine public health


priorities.
• Basis for monitoring and evaluating health program
implementation.
• Basis for planning, budgeting, logistics, and decision
making at all levels.
• Source of data to detect unusual occurrence of a
disease.
• Needed to monitor health status of the community.
• Helps midwives in following up clients.
• Documentation of RHM/PHN day to day activities.
Historical Background

• 1987-conceptualization stage
• 1988-consultative meetings
• 1989-pilot implementation(Region 4 & 7)
• 1990-nationwide implementation
• 1993-devolution
• 1996- 1st modification(modified FHSIS)
• 2006-2007- 2nd modification (FHSIS v.
2008)
The FHSIS has as its focus the
programs of the DOH public health
services (PHS), namely:

• Maternal and Child (MCH);
• Expanded Program on Immunization (EPI);
• Control of Diarrheal Diseases (CDD);
• Nutrition;
• Family Planning ;

• The Tuberculosis, Malaria, Schistosomiasis, and
Leprosy Control progress;
• Dental Health and
• Environmental Health.
A. Recording

1. Individual Treatment Record (ITR)

The fundamental building block of foundation of the FHSIS is


the INDIVIDUAL TREATMENT RECORD. This is a
document, form or a piece of paper upon which is recorded
the date, name, address of patient, presenting symptoms or
complaint of the patient on consultation and the diagnosis (if
available), treatment and date of treatment. This record will
be maintained as a part of the system of records at each
health facility on all patient seen. This record may be as
simple as the following example prepared on plain bond
paper.
Sample of ITR:

DELA CRUZ, ROSE M.

1980

2. TARGET/CLIENT LISTS

• The Target/Client Lists constitute the second “building block”


of the FHSIS and are intended to serve several purposes.

– The first and primary purpose is to help nurse/midwife


plan and carry out patient care and service delivery.

– A second purpose of Target/ client lists is to facilitate the


monitoring and supervision of service delivery activities.
In this regard, the lists were designed so as to provide
the information essential to the monitoring/supervision of
programs prescribed service schedules.
2. TARGET/CLIENT LISTS

– A third purpose is to report services delivered.

– fourth purpose of the Target/client Lists is to


provide a clinic-level data base which can be
accessed for further studies
2. TARGET/CLIENT LISTS
The TCL to be maintained in the FHSIS version 2008 are as
follows:

• Target Client List for Prenatal Care


• Target Client List for Post-Partum Care
• Target Client List of Under 1 Year Old Children
• Target Client List for Family Planning
• Target Client List for Sick Children
• NTP TB Register (same as program)
• National Leprosy Control Program Form 2-Central
Registration Form (same as program)
3. Summary Table

• The Summary Table is a form with 12-


month columns retained at the facility (BHS)
where the

• midwife records monthly all relevant data.


The Summary Table is composed of : (1)
Health Program Accomplishment (2)
Morbidity Disease.
3.1. Health Program Accomplishment

• the midwife records on this summary table all the


data that are found in the TCL.
• This summary table is an easy source of data for
reports being prepared by the midwife.
• This also serves as the data source for any survey,
special study, or research that may include the
facility.
• Most importantly, this can serve as a tool for the
midwife to assess her own accomplishments.
3.2. Morbidity Disease
• the midwife in the BHS accomplish this
table on a monthly basis.

• This summary table can also be the source


of ten leading causes of morbidity for the
municipality/city.

• This summary table will help the nurse and


MHO to get the monthly trend disease.
4. The Monthly Consolidation Table(MCT)
• The Consolidation Table is an essential form in the
FHSIS where the nurse at the RHU records the
reported data per indicator by each BHS or midwife.

• This is the source document of the nurse for the


Quarterly form.

• The Consolidation Table shall serve as the Output


Table of the RHU as it already contains listing of
BHS per indicator.
B.REPORTING
• the midwife in the BHS accomplish this
table on a monthly basis.

• This summary table can also be the source


of ten leading causes of morbidity for the
municipality/city.

• This summary table will help the nurse and


MHO to get the monthly trend disease.
C. Flow Report
D. OUTPUT REPORTS
• Output Reports or Tables will be produced at the
PHO from the data reported in FHSIS Reporting
Forms. Computer-generated output reports will
then be disseminated down to the RHU/MHC and
up through the DOH system to the Regional Health
Offices. The objective in designing the output
formats is to make the reports useful for
monitoring/management purposes at each level.
