FP/MIS: a management information system for a community family planning clinic.


:The management information system (FP/MIS) used by the Howard University Center for Family Planning Services, which operates community family planning clinics in Washington, D.C. is described. The system was developed to satisfy program objectives in patient management, program planning and evaluation, resource management, federal reporting systems and clinical, epidemiological and health services research. The data collection forms used in the system and the output from the four data display groups--patient profile, resource management, quality of care and epidemiology-are described along with examples of their use. :The Howard University Center for Family Planning Services (HUCFPS) was established in June 1970 with the stated goals of promoting maternal and child health and disseminating family planning information and supplies within the community target area in the District of Columbia. The management information system (FP/MIS) used by the Center was developed to facilitate program objectives, program planning and evaluation and to meet federal reporting requirements. Development of the FP/MIS is described. The input and encounter forms are described and pictured. Uses made of the collected data are outlined. Patient profiles, resource management, quality of care, and epidemiological assessments can be made from the data.
