There are two types of deduplication in DATIM as summarized in the following table.
Furthermore, there are three deduplication logic types:
SUM: Add IM results together at site level
(Assumes No Duplication of clients by IMs)
MAX: Across all IMs, report the “biggest” indicator result at the site level
(Assumes Full or Broad Duplication of clients by IMs)
CUSTOM: Across all IMs, report a custom indicator result at the site level based on contextual or known programmatic factors
(Assumes Partial Duplication of clients by IMs)
For those unfamiliar with the deduplication process we recommend reviewing the DATIM Dedupe Training Review presentation before reviewing the application guide.
