NHIMA Background Information:
The National Health Insurance Management Authority (NHIMA) was established by the National Health Insurance Act No. 2 of 2018 of the Laws of Zambia with a mandate to implement the Nation Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) as part of the operationalization of the Ministry of Health (MOH)’s Health Care Financing Strategy 2017 – 2027. R4G has committed to support NHIMA to strengthen the management of NHIMA’s monitoring and evaluation (M&E) systems that guides the implementation of the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) in Zambia. The core function of the M&E Systems is to generate high quality data needed for NHIMA to effectively monitor implementation of planned activities and evaluate outcomes to inform policy and strategy formulation. However, the state of NHIMA M&E systems faces critical challenges related to the collection, reporting, analysis, and dissemination of NHIS data.
NHIMA has developed NHIS data model prototype using Power BI Desktop that require integration with NHIS Databases (eNHIMA and HIP) and the Power BI model through the implementation of the Power BI Gateway and Workflows to automate the data Extract, Transform and Load (ETL) process. It is expected that these activities will increase and accelerate the development of M&E Systems to track the implementation of the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) in Zambia.
