Testimonials

The ability to access near to real time programmatic data is critical for implementing cost effective data driven health interventions. As the RTC SI team lead I also believe that timely data processing coupled with accurate reporting and analytical capabilities, provide us the enhanced ability to make more informed, evidence-based decisions. With increased programmatic reporting needs to various stakeholders (including high frequency reporting needs), automation 3of processes were applicable is of paramount importance. Incorporating the appropriate reporting, analytics and information delivery strategy into the RTC data management processes, had a significant impact on the organizations, and fundamental change in the way MERL and programme employees perform their jobs.

In the past, reporting to funders was laborious and time consuming, often requiring data capturing and a vast number of resources to manage the M&E processes. With the QodeLynx, QodeInsight and Knowledge Center solutions, monitoring of performance, reporting and developing targeted interventions became more efficient. The design of the system provides timeous information to management, SI and technical leads within controlled structures in the form of near “real time” knowledge.

Once data is received and decrypted, it can be automatically analyzed and reported as needed in form of pre-agreed static and dynamic visuals. This has facilitated the implementation of daily and weekly situation rooms that also incorporate other stakeholders predominately health district teams. Captured data belongs to our clients and server storage is managed by Qode Health Solutions on behalf of all our clients. In providing targeted intervention to our patients, we leverage innovative solutions, and the ability to rapidly and be adaptive to the ever changing reporting needs, we turn to the professionals at Qode Health Solutions to ensure timely delivery.

Qode Health Solutions has tailored their software, and data products with other services into a solution package suiting our unique needs. We are delighted with the product and the way Qode approached the project.

The whole team was a pleasure to work with and we look forward to engaging in future projects with you.

We have adopted Qode Lynx as our tool of choice for the data collection of counselling sessions and HIV Testing and Screening. It has revolutionised how we perform our day to day work, allowing us to have up to date figures, not only on our targets, but also on the performance of the staff in the field. The linking of time stamps with GPS positioning gives us the ability to deploy staff to high yield locations and utilize our resources more efficiently.

The support team at Qode are always friendly and helpful and have gone out of their way to support our unique requirements.

The Qode solutions have revolutionised our approach to M&E. The data is reliable, verifiable and accurate, while data entry into Lynx is simple and easy to use for all—just half day training required.

Most importantly, the data available real-time which allows more time for evaluation and improvement of programme implementation. Finally, the systems allow for monitoring of the quality of service provision in the field and ensuring that the entire testing algorithm is followed, ultimately benefiting our most important stakeholder—our clients.
