A recently published case study reveals how the PRISM framework and its tools could help policy makers and HIS managers of Guanajuato State identify the system's strengths and weaknesses and develop interventions for strengthening.

An assessment of the National Health Information System (SINAIS, by its Spanish acronym) in Guanajuato State, Mexico, was conducted in January 2010 to provide information on the SINAIS situation of the Guanajuato State Department of Health.

The report also includes discussion of the methodology, the systems areas of strengths and recommendations to strengthen identified areas requiring improvement.
