This paper describes how an HMIS can also be used for organisational development and reports on the experiences of the HMIS programme of the Uganda Catholic Medical Bureau (UCMB) in Uganda.

A Health Management Information System (HMIS) can be a powerful tool to make health care delivery more effective and far more efficient. The programme forms part of a larger programme on ICTs for health in Uganda, Tanzania and Zambia and is supported jointly by the International Institute for Communication and Development (IICD) and the Catholic Organisation for Relief and Development Aid (Cordaid).

The goal of the paper is to evaluate the project against a background of organisational development and to draw practical lessons from the project that may provide guidance to new HMIS projects in the development context.
