Stages of Health Information System Improvement in Low and Middle-Income Countries
While there has been a growing emphasis on Health Information Systems (HIS) strengthening and measuring how they contributes to improved health outcomes, there is limited understanding of factors affecting HIS improvement at different stages of its development. The Monitoring and Evaluation to Assess and Use Results (MEASURE) Evaluation Phase IV is a USAID-funded five-year (2014-2019) project. MEASURE Evaluation’s mission is to contribute to better health for people living in low-income countries by assisting governments and health institutions to generate and use information to change what doesn’t work and to scale up what does. This seminar will review the five stages of improvement together with associated domains/sub-domains and discuss attributes defining HIS improvement at different stages of HIS development.
