About this Registry

The Health Information System Indicator Registry is a repository of indicators that are used to evaluate the performance of health information systems (HIS). Indicators listed here have been drawn from existing tools, reports, and guidance. The indicators range from national to facility level and are categorized by:

Who Should Use this Registry

HIS managers and other personnel can use the registry to search by column for indicators that meet their needs. Information on each indicator was drawn directly from the document source, and information on scoring mechanisms and potential data sources are only provided if this information was explicitly stated in the source document for the indicator. 

How to Use the Registry

Download the Excel spreadsheet then use the filter buttons across the top to refine the indicators by the criteria.
