Health Information Systems

by on August 31, 2015

HIS_FS-15-140Strong health systems are central to achieving better health outcomes, and strong health information systems (HIS) are the backbone of strong health systems. A properly functioning HIS gets the right information into the right hands at the right time, enabling policymakers, managers, and individual service providers to make informed choices about everything from patient care to national budgets. Strong health information systems support greater transparency and accountability by increasing access to information. Unfortunately, many low and middle-income countries (LMICs) have a long way to go to achieve these goals.

MEASURE Evaluation works in partnership with global, national, and local partners to strengthen HIS. Dedicated to achieving sustainable improvements in health system performance and health outcomes, the project builds capacity to generate, manage, and use health information at both national and subnational levels.
