PRISM (Comprehensive)

Author:MEASURE Evaluation
Description:The Performance of Routine Information System Management (PRISM) framework consists of tools to assess routine health information system (RHIS) performance; identify technical, behavioral, and organizational factors that affect RHIS; aid the design of priority interventions to improve performance; and improve the quality and use of routine health data. The comprehensive PRISM framework may be used in totality-or through individual modules, as needed-for routine monitoring and targeted spot- or cross-checks. It is designed to be flexible and adaptable, and can be used to evaluate health information system strengthening interventions and for regular or ad hoc monitoring.
