Improving Data Quality in Mobile Community-Based HIS: Guidelines for Design and Implementation

Author:MEASURE Evaluation
Description:This data quality assessment resource is specific to mobile community-based health information systems (CBHIS). The mobile CBHIS data quality guidelines aid in the design and implementation of a mobile data collection system. The toolkit includes two checklists to asses mobile data collection forms, systems, feedback loops, and motivation practices. It can be used by both mobile developers and community-based program implementers to inform design and implementation; assess mobile CBHIS; develop and implement an action plan with correction measures; and monitor capacity and improvements in performance. The toolkit also includes guidance on adapting a community trace and verify tool to confirm that individuals who are reported as have been provided with services have actually received them.
