The common nightmare that hospital administrators have is when it comes time to submit the compulsory reports to ministry of health. In Uganda, the ministry directive is that the Health Management Information System Reports (HMIS) must always submitted be every after six months and after one year. Practically summing up such reports after every year is one major cause of sleepless nights to hospital administrators just because they lack an easy and simple way to electronically generate reports

The practice is that hospital administrators have to go though a pile of papers in order to come up with a combined report after a couple of days if not months. Consequently, some time they submit poor reports due to misplacement of some papers or some written documents being destroyed by rodents.

Gone are the days when such hustles used to happen, Helecare2x (http:helecare.com), a product of decimalworks ltd was introduced to solve paper relate data storage and retrieval problems. Imagine a patient returning to hospital after six months for check up and then a pile of files have to be checked in such of a single patient, think about the time spent on single patient, yet there other 100s of patients waiting.

Helecare2x does this in a couple of seconds, for as long as a patient visited the hospital once and his information captured, its easier to retrieve his details by just performing a search of the patient’s name.

Helecare2x does not only stop at just searching of patients’ details but also the total number of patients that visited the facility, assessing the performance of doctors, that is number of patients that a doctor has worked on in a certain month, its true that @HeleCare2X does all this in a minute for as long as some know exactly what should be done and how to do it.

Apart from reporting, Helecare2x solves the problem of doctors having to write prescriptions for patients to present to pharmacists, most doctors use a handwriting that is always almost impossible for pharmacists to understand, this is solved since prescription is done electronically.

Helecare2x with its easy to use interface is a truly revolutionary system for managing electronic patient records.

The drug distribution framework in Helecare – care2x

Management of drugs is one of the core challenges faced by health service providers. They need to know the current stock of drugs in the facility when they are to expire, the cost, batches and balances.

It is not common for clinicians to prescribe drugs that do not exist in their dispensaries. Whereas such a prescription may be out of a serious necessity, several alternative drugs with the same effect may be available in the facility. When such a scenario happens they dispenser usually sends back the patient for the clinician to make adjustments. With helecare, we have made it very easy for clinicians to know in real-time the currently available drugs in the system.

This functionality has greatly reduced on movement of patients back and forth within the hospital facilities.


If you have ever noticed, hospitals and health centers in Uganda and keen at taking your records whenever you go for treatment.

Part of this information is intended for reporting the district and headquarters. The ministry has provided a set of forms and reports described in the Health Information Management System manual (HMIS).

Most hospitals and heath centers generate these reports by manually going through these reports and tallying. This is very time consuming, error prone and a above all a boring brainless task.

Helecare2x a product provided by decimal works ltd helps to auto generated these reports for submission to relevant authorities.
