The National Health Information System (SINAIS, by its Spanish acronym) assessment in Guanajuato State was conducted in January 2010 to provide information on the SINAIS situation of the Guanajuato State Department of Health. The findings from this assessment are going to be used by the Guanajuato State health officials as an integral part of their HMIS strengthening plans, and agreed to share these results to develop a case study for the Routine Health Information System Network (RHINO) 4th International Workshop. The case study illustrates how SINAIS assessment in general and specifically how the PRISM framework and its tools could help policy makers and SINAIS managers to identify strengths and weaknesses of the system and develop interventions for strengthening the SINAIS.

The following report provides the findings of the baseline assessment of SINAIS in Guanajuato State. The report also includes discussion of the methodology, the systems areas of strengths and recommendations to strengthen identified areas requiring improvement.

The 2018 version of the PRISM Series, updated and with new modules (Toolkit, User’s Kit, and Training Kit) is available here:
