Cambodia Health Management Information System (HMIS) is the foundation of information for gathering health data from all health facilities across the health sector including public, private and non governmental organization providers. HMIS provides health information related to outpatient, inpatient attendance and other support services from health facilities across the country. The most recently compiled information for all health facilities through HMIS database is presented 100% of health data availability.
DPHI/MoH with supports of URC-BHS project introduce a programming of the national health Information system into a standardized software format will greatly ease the process of integrating vertical program data, notably from other vertical programs, with MoH HMIS database. The databases are now standardized as MySQL, and the PHP designed interface will be able to query data across different databases including vertical program data and other data sources. It will also be possible for provincial and operating district staff to enter both MoH HMIS and vertical program data directly into HMIS database through a common set of web-based data entry screens. Bringing this commonality of data entry to the HMIS has already increased timely data entry by 100% across the country.

OpenMRS annual Implementers Meeting began in 2006 as a way to bring members of the community together during a dedicated amount of time to collaborate, share implementation experiences, and find ways to improve OpenMRS (Open Medical Record System).
This meeting provides an opportunity for developers to collaborate and improve their technical skills in OpenMRS, implementers to share their best practices from implementations, and users to propose and prioritize their top features in future releases of the software. Different from the previous meetings, the 2011 Implementers Meeting will also include visits to OpenMRS implementation sites along with a discussion afterward for participants to share their experience and suggestions.

As results of rolling out integrated PMTCT data in HMIS database, NMCHC, DPHI/MoH and BHS provided five training courses to health staff who are in charge of managing PMTCT data at field level. Some of them are MoH HMIS health officers. A total of 125 governmental and NGO staff trained in managing PMTCT data and reports through HMIS web database.
