PRISM Tools User Guide Abstract:

Performance of Routine Information System Management (PRISM) is a conceptual framework for strengthening routine health information systems (RHIS) through better data quality and improved information use. PRISM broadens the analysis of RHIS performance to include three key categories of determinants that affect performance: behavioral (the knowledge, skills, attitudes, values, and motivation of the people who collect and use data); technical (the data collection forms, processes, systems, and methods); and organizational (the information culture, structure, resources, and roles and responsibilities of key contributors at each level of the health system). This guide is intended for professionals who want to design, assess, strengthen, and evaluate RHIS performance at the national and sub‐national levels.

The 2018 version of the PRISM Series, updated and with new modules (Toolkit, User’s Kit, and Training Kit) is available here:
