HISP INDIA (Society for Health Information Systems Programmes) is a not for profit NGO specializing in designing and implementing solutions in health informatics for the public health sector since 15+ years. We not only have projects in 20 Indian states but also in other countries such as Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bangladesh and Bhutan.

With certifications in ISO (9001:2015) and DSIR (Department of Scientific and Industrial Research), we seek to integrate knowledge in domains of public health, informatics and implementation research.

Our guiding principles include:

Free and open source solutions

Our flagship products include DHIS2 and OpenMRS, both open source software platforms being evolved by a global community based on the principles of global public goods.

Part of the HISP network

We are part of the global and regional HISP network since 2000. We leverage upon this global expertise and contribute to the development of collective knowledge, and help expand national and regional networks in India and Asia.

System development, research and education.

We work within an action research framework that combines research, education and practical systems development. This is aimed at solving real life problems relating to health information systems, and simultaneously contribute to building sustainable capacity in the country.


These are the core platforms on which we are developing our solutions.

DHIS2 Aggregate

DHIS-2 Aggregate

We have developed various applications for aggregated data such as state data warehouse and integrated analytical dashboards, reports and core customization based on available and custom made DHIS2 features.


DHIS-2 Tracker

Responding to the current trends for data management related to individual patients and events, we have carried out different customizations for diseases registries, clinics based systems and the support of patient level care.


DHIS-2 Mobile

DHIS2 Mobile serves as an extension of DHIS2 based solutions to cater to the information demands from outreach centres and peripheral clinics. For example, DHIS2 Mobile has been customized to support case based surveillance and reporting by the community health worker.


OpenMRS - Hospital

To support integrated patient based core within hospitals and clinical settings, we have customized the OpenMRS platform to support different functions, and have integrated it with the DHIS2 to enable aggregate facility reporting.



We have customized iHRIS for human resources management and also integrated the data from iHRIS and HMIS to develop cross cutting indicators to gain better insights into health workforce utilization and performance.


Our core Services which will help you to find better solutions


Data Analytics

Using DHIS2 we conduct monthly analysis of HMIS data on data quality and health status. These analytical reports, also available through the dashboard are sent monthly to the states who use it for internal review and planning purposes and further dissemination to the districts.

We have been actively undertaking In-service training in Indian states, since more than a decade. Between 2008 and 2012, in partnership with NHSRC, we supported nearly 1,000 man days of training across nearly 20 states in India. We are routinely conducting In-service training for states on use of DHIS2 and use of information for monitoring and evaluation. We supported NHSRC in the development of 4 HMIS manuals for users.

Requirement and Evaluation Studies

All our projects have a strong component of requirement analysis where we seek to understand issues relating to data flows, meta-data, indicators required, and the supporting work practices. The aim is through this analysis conducted in collaboration with clients to not only automate existing processes but to also rationalize and integrate them so that the clients can gain more value from their information systems.
