A well-functioning data management system is a prerequisite for producing high quality data and involves ensuring the accuracy, completeness, consistency and timeliness of data collected by an organisation.
Using standardized methods and tools, EHG experts carry out data quality audits (DQA) and data verification exercises. A DQA verifies the quality of reported data and assesses the underlying data management and reporting system. Data verification exercises focus on assessing the quality of reported financial, administrative and programmatic data. Services include on-site verification of records, interviews with key actors involved in data collection and reporting, and assessment of data management systems.
