The Performance of Routine Information System Management (PRISM) framework defines routine health information system (RHIS) performance as both the production of quality data and documented use of information for health services decision making. This framework is accompanied by a set of tools to measure RHIS performance. This paper describes the conceptual framework on the determinants of RHIS performances and effectiveness of strategies to improve the system. The examples addressed in this paper highlight the RHIS permanence in various countries at different administrative levels, efforts made to address identified gaps, and some observed progresses. Preliminary findings of PRISM assessments after intervention show encouraging results.
