After more than a year of hard work, and months of testing and improvement, we are very pleased to officially release the new ORBF tool to help manage RBF and strategic purchasing on top of DHIS2 platforms.
Since 2012, Bluesquare has been developing and deploying OpenRBF in many countries. OpenRBF was a separate and stand alone software platform. In 2016, we decided to re-build the software, and split it into several modules, while maintaining our focus on technology that would enhance the health financing capability of DHIS2. This led to the development of three software modules that are plugged into DHIS2: DataCollect (an ODK to DHIS2 offline mobile android app), DataViz (a data visualisation interface used for RBF portals), and ORBF, a health financing rule engine.
Over the coming months we will share more on these modules. For today we will focus on ORBF and its great capabilities.
