Release Notes for PEPFAR Data Genie: February 11, 2019
Version 1.6.0 (February 11, 2019)

1. Updates to the MER OUxIM, PSNUxIM, and SitexIM Reports

Note: These updates currently affect the Genie OUxIM, PSNUxIM, and SitexIM Daily reports only, because the current frozen report does not include FY19 Q1 data. However, as of February 22, 2019, the frozen report will update to include FY2019 initial Q1 data and these updates will affect both frozen and daily reports for OUxIM, PSNUxIM, and SitexIM.

a. Resolved error for HTS_TST total numerator

Between the dates of January 21, 2019 and February 10, 2019, the PEPFAR Data Genie (Genie) reports were incorrectly displaying the value for HTS_TST total numerator. The unknown age values for HTS_INDEX (facility and community) were not included in this total numerator, which may have resulted in a lower HTS_TST total numerator value than expected. This error has been resolved as of February 11, 2019.

If you have used a Genie OUxIM, PSNUxIM, or SitexIM Daily report to view FY19 Q1 results for HTS_TST total numerator between the dates of January 21, 2019 and February 10, 2019, please re-download the report to verify your HTS_TST results.

b. New calculated indicator: PMTCT_EID Total Denominator

A calculated indicator has been added for PMTCT_EID Total Denominator. This indicator is calculated by summing PMTCT_STAT POS: 1) Newly Tested Positive, 2) Known Positive at entry and HTS_TST_POS: Post ANC1: Pregnancy/L&D/BF modality. Please refer to the MER 2.3 Indicator Reference Guide for additional information about this indicator.

c. Update to age band field for HTS_TST Pediatric and Malnutrition modalities

In FY2018 and prior, age for HTS_TST Pediatric and Malnutrition modalities was collected as “<5”. The column “AgeAsEntered” listed the age for Pediatric and Malnutrition modality data as “<15” to facilitate the analysis of aggregated HTS_TST data by <15 and 15+ age bands.

In FY2019, HTS_TST Pediatric and Malnutrition modalities were updated to collect data under “Unknown Age”, “<1” and “1-4” age bands. The “AgeAsEntered” column now displays these labels rather than “<15”. HTS_TST data can still be aggregated at the <15, 15+ level using the column “AgeCoarse”.

d. Update to “AgeFine” column

The column “AgeFine” contains the Fine Age Bands from FY2018 (<1, 1-9, 10-14, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-49, 50+). This column should be used when conducting a trend over time analysis from FY2018 to FY2019 using age-disaggregated data.

The column “AgeFine” has now been updated to include “Unknown Age” as an option. Additionally, the option “Retired Age Band” will now display in this column whenever data was entered during a historical age band (such as 25-49) which cannot map to the FY2018 Fine Age Bands.

 

2. Updates to the Data Review Tool (DRT)

Between the dates of January 21, 2019 and February 10, 2019, the Data Review Tool had a number of data quality checks that were unnecessarily flagged. These checks were in the “Checks Across Time Periods” category, and are listed below. This issue has been resolved. The checks will now only be flagged in the event that results were reported in the last quarter (FY2018 Q4) but no results were reported in the current quarter (FY2019 Q1).

If you have used the DRT report to review FY19 Q1 results between the dates of January 21, 2019 and February 10, 2019, you may wish to re-download the results to confirm the resolution of any checks that were flagged incorrectly.

Checks Across Time Periods: Results were reported last quarter, but then no results were reported in the current quarter. "Reported" means there was a value (which could include 0) entered for an IM.
