Hierarchy of organisational structures

CMI/ODS uses this hierarchy of organisational structures:

  • organisation
  • establishment
  • campus
  • subcentre
  • program.

Programs are the basic service units for CMI/ODS. Each campus requires subcentres and programs to record the delivery of services.

Program definition

A program is ‘the organisational service unit attached to a subcentre. Each program identifies a clinical function or service intervention performed by a team that relates directly to a funded activity’.

Business rules for programs

  • At least one program must be assigned to a subcentre (subcentre/program maintenance).
  • Program classifications must align across linked subcentres or programs.
  • Program start date must be less than the subcentre/program start date.
