Database harmonization is more than the ability to share information between organizations. It is the ability to serve an entire population; to provide services, safety and security to nations without compromising civil rights and the right to privacy. Data pooling on an individual department or organization level has always faced numerous challenges and hurdles, as often, the variables and data available, while interconnected, was not harmonized to provide collaborative management systems, especially in areas such as public health, epidemiology and social services.

NIP Global – Registration Database Harmonization Management

Integrated harmonized data provides an exceptional level of insight that individual database management cannot. A harmonized national registration database may provide a central government with the ability to act in ways that benefit the entire populace, instead of relying on individual government department databases to provide solutions in one area only. Data harmonization and database federated methodology, when implemented on a national level provides for modular packages while maintaining a national database with easy access to all relevant departments.

Civil Registration Solutions – Better Information to Benefit Everyone

Having a harmonized central national database allows for an increased level of security. This is especially important when fighting cross-border crime, such as human trafficking, specifically child trafficking, as well as disease control, social services, increased border control services as well as election management and voter registration. Access to services is more easily managed, allowing for marginalized sectors of the population to have immediate access to the help and government services that they require. NIP Global, pioneers of harmonized database and central database management have rolled out solutions in countries like Lesotho and Zimbabwe where registrations have topped 44% and have ensured that more people have access to government services. This success and implementation also allows for researchers, scientists and public health workers to quickly and accurately provide services in areas like disease control, infrastructure planning and population studies.
