In order to plan and manage human resources effectively, countries need accurate and complete data about the available supply of health workers and the existing workforce. A strong human resources information system enables health care leaders to assess and project the number of health workers that need to be trained, ensure that health professionals have the requisite qualifications for practice, identify open and filled positions, plan effective interventions, and evaluate those interventions.

iHRIS is a free, open source software specifically designed for use by ministries of health, professional health councils, and health facilities to understand and strengthen the health workforce.  

IntraHealth International, through the USAID global Capacity Project, launched the first iHRIS product in 2007, when IntraHealth recognized the need for accurate and accessible health workforce data at the country level. iHRIS is making the difference between not knowing where to start solving workforce challenges and getting started.
