HIS Interoperability Maturity Toolkit for Low-Resource Settings

Author:MEASURE Evaluation, Health Data Collaborative
Description:This resource offers a set of tools and guidance to assess capacity to implement interoperable HIS in low-resource settings. The guidance defines the factors critical to successful implementation of interoperable information systems apart from technology. The toolkit contains three pieces: the maturity model, assessment tool, and user guide. The HIS interoperability maturity model identifies the main components of HIS interoperability and lays out an organization's growth pathway through these components. Countries can use the accompanying assessment tool to systematically determine their HIS interoperability maturity level. Using the assessment results, countries can create a developmental path toward strengthening their HIS interoperability and having resilient systems.
