In addition Ministry of Health and Family Welfare made a database for leave management which takes data from Personal Data Sheet database. The ministry is developing another new database for tracking deputation information for on the job higher education.
Personal Data Sheet (PDS): Although developed for all categories of health professionals both in public and private sectors, as of now mainly the doctors working in the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) under the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MOHFW) use the system. They create and update this database by themselves. This database provides detail profiles (a complete resume) of each staff maintaining his or her PDS.
Human Resource Management System: This database receives human resource data provided by each health organization under the DGHS. According to the plan, this database can provide updated information of all man power in the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) any time.
Field Staff Information System: This database has been created through gathering data from each field staff working in the grassroots level, who sent personal information through SMS using respective mobile phone. The staffs include health assistant, assistant health inspector, health inspector and their family planning service counter parts. The community health care providers are also included in the database. The information includes names, affiliation, place of work, designation and mobile number.
