The HIS Stages of Continuous Improvement (SOCI) Toolkit was collaboratively designed to help countries or organizations holistically assess, plan, and prioritize interventions and investments to strengthen an HIS. The assessment measures current and desired HIS status across five core domains of an HIS, and 39 subcomponents, and maps a path toward improvement—thus assisting countries in ensuring the right information is available to the right people at the right time. HIS are essential not only to monitor and improve national and subnational programs, but also to demonstrate country progress on a global level. This tool aligns with World Health Organization efforts to strengthen country HIS and capacities to monitor universal health coverage and health Sustainable Development Goals. The HIS SOCI Toolkit was jointly developed by the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Health Data Collaborative digital health and interoperability working group, and the USAID-funded MEASURE Evaluation project. The toolkit also responds to one of MEASURE Evaluation’s Learning Agenda questions.
