  1. 1. Health Information System Performance Monitoring Tool Fern Greenwell, PhD MPH MEASURE Evaluation December 2017 HISPMT
  2. 2. Outline 1. Why the HISPMT? 2. Who is it for, when is it used? 3. Where are the boundaries? 4. How does it work? 5. What kind of results? 6. Current status and next steps
  3. 3. Why the HISPMT? Purpose To guide HIS managers in a systematic review across the main HIS data sources that generate data needed to monitor the health system. Results are intended to inform stakeholders about which data sources bear the highest demand for generating data, and the performance of each data source. The tool provides evidence needed for decision makers to prioritize HIS-strengthening interventions.
  4. 4. Who, when, where? Who? Use by a HIS manager* * To complete the tool, she/he will need to consult with managers of specific data sources both within and outside of the health sector. When? Periodic application prior to: • Reviews or revisions of the national health strategy • Health sector and/or sector-wide planning and budget allocation meetings, e.g., SWAp Where?

  5. 5. Where are HISPMT boundaries? 12 HIS data sources Population-based Institution-based Mixed
  6. 6. 4 Steps Indicator mix: assume these indicators are relevant to the country. Take into account data elements in the numerators and denominators. Map data elements to the 12 preferred data sources (summarized demand on each). Complete each rapid assessment with 15-25 questions to assess validity and reliability for each data source. How does HISPMT work?
  7. 7. HISPMT results(2,3) Demand on Data Sources
  8. 8. HISPMT results (4) Automated scores summarize the data sources’ performance in generating valid and reliable data vis-à-vis the demand for data.
  9. 9. Status and next steps ▪ Content – drafted, pending finalization ▪ Automation – by end of May ▪ Availability – electronic platform by June 1 For support in applying the HISPMT, contact: Fern Greenwell, MEASURE Evaluation
