Solicitation #: NACA/GF/RSSH/LAB/21/BL140
The National Agency for the Control of AIDS (NACA) in Nigeria is seeking a vendor to develop a national laboratory information system (LIS) that meets the country’s needs. “Currently, different types of laboratory information management systems LIS exist in Nigeria across implementing partners and disease programs. There is LIMS for HIV, TB, Malaria etc. The available LIS exists in fragments and are being managed by different stakeholders. The importance of a national LIS to manage the routine operations of medical laboratories cannot be overemphasized because it provides the opportunity of individualized dashboards for laboratories through which quality indicators, performance indicators, inventory management, data transfer/storage and analysis can be done at the laboratory level. One of the biggest and accessible LIS in the country is the one being used for HIV Viral load and EID sample management.
The N-LIS when implemented, will reduce paper reporting and manual interference in the system significantly leading to eventual savings of resources and shortening of Turn Around Time (TAT). The N-LIS will interface with different reporting systems such as SORMAS, DHIS 2, NDR having data sources like EMR, eTB, paper-based N-LIS and other Health Information Systems (HIS).”
