Routine Health Information Systems

by on December 30, 2016

Routine Health Information SystemsOver the past decades, knowledge and understanding have grown regarding the role that health information systems play in improving global health. Even so, using data to make evidence-informed decisions is still weak in most low- and middle-income countries. This is particularly true for data produced by routine health information systems (RHIS).

MEASURE Evaluation, funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), has provided technical and financial assistance for RHIS strengthening for more than 15 years. We have contributed to best practices at the global level, and to the strengthening of RHIS data collection, quality, analysis, and use at the country level. One of the project’s mandates is to strengthen the collection, analysis, and use of these data to achieve high-quality health service delivery.

Our main strategic approaches for strengthening RHIS focus on developing and reinforcing a country’s long-term planning for an integrated HIS, including all data sources, health metrics, and tools. We are also helping to create district-managed and denominator-based RHIS at subnational levels.
