USAID Global Health Bureau’s Country Health Information Systems and Data Use (CHISU) program will be hosting the second webinar of their series Learnings from Health System Assessments Using the High Performing Health Care (HPHC) Tool in LMICs on Tuesday, June 27. The theme of this webinar is Local and Global Learning in Health System Performance Monitoring.
Information is critical for the health system to improve performance and address population health needs. The HPHC tool not only provides information at the local level but allows for global comparison to understand special and systemic issues for better policy and program development, improvement, and investments.
Health systems in low-and middle-income countries are making strides to improve health system performance and achieve universal health coverage. The HPHC tool adds value in defining and tracking high-level system characteristics of accountable, affordable, accessible, and reliable care, which are embedded in health system processes functionalities. The HPHC tool’s innovative methodology uses an internet survey for measuring health system performance that provides timely decision-making for policy development, adaptive management, and tracking health system performance over time.
The key speakers will provide a critical review of the HPHC tool and discuss comparative analyses of existing HPHC data for local and global learning and performance monitoring. They will also describe plans to implement the tool in their countries and conditions facilitating the tool use.
