An innovative tool that helps track a country health system’s ability to deliver care

USAID’s new Vision for Health System Strengthening 2030 calls for a whole-of-society collaborative effort between public health services, communities, and health care institutions to ensure health systems perform in ways that promote the achievement of universal health coverage (UHC). To measure progress toward becoming a high performing health system, CHISU and USAID developed a web-based application called the High Performing Health Care (HPHC) systems tool. This innovative tool recognizes and captures the multidimensionality of UHC by organizing the characteristics of high performing health care systems into four pillars to measure strengths and weaknesses in a health system’s ability to deliver care that is accountable, affordable, accessible, and reliable.
