iHRIS Suite

iHRIS Suite

The iHRIS Software Suite is an open source solution for tracking and managing health care workers across a country. It consists of three software solutions: iHRIS Qualify, iHRIS Manage, and iHRIS Plan.

iHRIS Qualify is a health professional certification and licensing system. It enables a licensing or certification authority for a health worker cadre, such as nurses or physicians, to track complete data on a cadre in a country from pre-service training through attrition. The database captures information about health professionals from the time they enter training through registration and licensure, and it is updated every time a professional's license or certification is renewed. iHRIS Qualify can also track continuing medical education credit hours attained by health workers, capture data about foreign-trained workers applying to work within the country and record out migration verification requests.

iHRIS Manage is a human resources management tool that enables an organization to design and manage a comprehensive human resources strategy. It helps an organization manage its workforce more effectively and efficiently, while reducing costs and data errors.

iHRIS Plan is a workforce planning and modeling software program that enables decision makers to assess their workforce needs for the next several years, project the actual health workforce over the same time and make effective policy decisions to close the gap between the two.

The software is used in Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda, and Botswana.
