What Works to Strengthen the Systems that Inform Health Services? Abstract:

The Health Information System (HIS) Stages of Continuous Improvement (SOCI) Toolkit helps countries holistically assess and prioritize investments to strengthen their HIS. An assessment using the toolkit measures current and desired HIS status, and it maps a path for a system to improve. Using the toolkit, countries can increase the availability of timely data so they can make decisions with more confidence that better health outcomes will follow.

The SOCI toolkit complements efforts by the World Health Organization to strengthen the capacity of countries’ HIS and workforce to monitor progress toward universal health coverage and the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals for health. This brief shares more.
