HRIS Status Assessment

A country’s Human Resource Information System (HRIS) should provide decision-makers with the health workforce information they need to meet the health needs of their populations. Despite progress in strengthening HRIS in recent years, many countries’ health workforce data remains incomplete and of variable quality, and human resources databases – when existing – are managed across different sectors and lack interoperability. This hinders countries’ ability to make informed, evidence-based policy decisions. Continued strengthening and scale-up of countries HRIS will be integral to meeting national and global health goals, including the National Health Workforce Accounts.

 

Through this activity, HRH2030 will use the HRIS Assessment Framework (HAF) to help countries:

  • Assess the functionality of their HRIS (including components such as pre-service education, registration and licensure, and attrition)
  • Assess the capacity of their HRIS (including components such as data quality, use of data, and interoperability)
  • Combine functionality and capacity scores to determine HRIS maturity
  • Determine the most targeted investments for HRIS strengthening
