Any feedback on our approach to display completion rates on the Operational Performance page.
thanks for this. i would just change the title to “Birth Registration Completeness” and the sub-title to “Birth registration completeness as a % of the total estimated number of births by time of registration”.
I assume you would have a similar table for death registration completeness and for birth and death certification completeness?
I am also thinking that it would be valuable to have maps of this data.
Thanks to sharing the data on registration completeness (in %) against total birth occurred/estimated. I would like to add if possible, the registration completeness against number of total birth should be bifurcate in terms of Institutional birth & home birth. Through this approach we can easily assess the situation of CRVS system. Thanks.
Well received this is important as it reflects levels of efficiency and effectiveness of the birth process. Mine here is about the general view on births occurring in hospitals and those occurring in the community, are they all captured with this percentage??
thanks @mbratschi! Yes we need to improve and make it more explicit that this is Birth performance data.
Yes you can change the location, time period and event (birth and deaths) using the filters.
Maps are definitely being considered. Need to find a resource for SVG map data for each country and map that data to the administrative level it represents. This will need to be a configuration option for a country to upload map data for each administrative level.
@ybkmpagi Yes they are all captured in the overall Completeness rates.
We currently show on the Operational view the source of applications. So you can see where declarations were started. From the field, from a health system, from a registration office.
But similar to @raj.pandey request. Showing the breakdown of Home Births vs in Health institutions explicitly should be added.
Thankyou both for your feedback
Impressive and sufficient enough surely having all this categorised is thoughtful for all birth scenarios thanks again
agree with all. yes countries should be bale to upload their own / preferred shape files. thanks
The wording feels/sounds strange… maybe RBE(RECORDED BIRTH EVENTS) OR DBE)DOCUMENTED BIRTH EVENTS). The birth events are 100% happening, it’s just us capturing a percentile of the total events. A report of missed births and their geographic location (town/village etc) would be good so that it can be rerouted via mobile to village/town leaders for follow-up. Also, I hope the 30 day is not hard-coded.
I would add the source of the denominator to calculate the completeness
Thanks for the comments @bzmrgonz !
- When you say the wording sounds strange - do you mean “registrations”?
- When you refer to “a report of missed births” - do you mean it would be useful to have a means by which OpenCRVS can send a notification of birth for follow-up? This is definitely a service delivery model that we think can have a big impact!
- 30 days is a configurable field - the country can update the legally stipulated timeframe as per their rules and regs
regarding this report, it would be great if OpenCRVS could highlight areas where there is the greatest discrepancies between expected and observed events
Thanks for the clarification Martin. I believe this is covered in completeness rates - number of vital events registered vs. expected (based on BR rate and local population). @j.pye-finch is that correct? This denominator can be challenging to get / it is only available at the national level, but naturally we have to work with what we get.
I was refering to “OPERATIONAL PERFORMANCE”.
REPORT OF MISSING BIRTHS… yes, if we could capture “empty” events. .per se… whether due to lack of interest in registering a birth, or other technical reason, we could pursue the parents and assis/encourage the registration (be it politically motivated, village chief, or other political ground troop aparatus) or a CRVS field agent.
We could certainly highlight areas where completeness rates are low - then local registrars can come up with locally relevant strategies to engage with these populations… even give Registrars the opportunity to log actions for accountability
Yes that would be awesome, once that indicator can be made mobile (report) it can be routed to the gatekeepers and from my experience, there are a few, politicians, village organizers, religious groups, schools, etc.
These are useful comments. I would add, completeness rate by region/province/ is useful for monioring registration performance. It would also be useful to have it by sex and region (illustrated by map or graphs) to see if there is gender preference in current registration of events.
Thanks, @Yacob for your inputs! I’m glad to say the user can filter by location. While the breakdown is available by sex, we are yet to visualise this in a specific view. @j.pye-finch please capture this and we can get some in-country feedback!
Just a general pink flag on this, without specifics.
The excellent discussion in this thread illustrates a risk that I believe I highlighted in an early Product Council meeting.
There’s a perfectly understandable bias among global CRVS practitioners toward driving up registration rates for births.
I can certainly confirm, from my country-specific point of view, that — in terms of the efficacy and integrity of BDR; its necessary anchoring of formalisation; and the overall impact of CRVS data as a growth multiplier and development accelerator — the far greater demand is for the registration of deaths to be driven way up from the recent estimate (by Bloomberg’s DHI) of 19 percent.
I’ll give further thought to how this concern might be better reflected in — and addressed by reference to — OpenCRVS’s Operational Performance and completeness dashboards.
In the meantime, I’d be interested to hear other country-specific perspectives on this, e.g. from @Daniel in Kenya.
