Release Notes for PEPFAR Data Genie: February 25, 2019

Version 1.6.2 (February 25, 2019)

 

1. Updates, Known Issues, and Planned Changes to the MER OUxIM, PSNUxIM, and SitexIM Reports

a) Data Update: The MER OUxIM, PSNUxIM, and SitexIM Frozen Reports have been updated with updated with FY 2019 Q1 data.

Action: To view data as it was entered on February 15, 2019, please use the Frozen Report. To view in-process data during the FY2019 Q1 cleaning period, please use the daily report.

 

b) Data Issue: For 2018 Q4 data, CXCA_SCRN_POS only includes “Cervical Cancer: Positive” and incorrectly excludes “Cervical Cancer: Suspected.”

Action: If analyzing CXCA_SCRN_POS add the “Positive” and “Suspected” disaggregates.
Expected resolution: This calculation will be updated for the Q1 Cleaned Data release on March 29, 2019.

 

c) Structure Issue: Several HTS and TB DATIM data elements collected fine age data but were incorrectly labelled using "Age Aggregated" when they are Fine Age. This does not affect the accuracy of the data, only the labelling. Please refer to the table below for the specific indicators affected.

Action: Between February 22 and March 29, users should use the "Standardized Disaggregate” column instead of the "Disaggregate" column.
Expected resolution: The disaggregates will be updated for the Q1 Cleaned Data release on March 29, 2019.
