We need better primary healthcare performance data to understand what’s working well and where further improvements are needed, including:

  • A comprehensive vision and purpose for data collection;
  • High quality and practical data;
  • Measurement that accelerates performance improvements;
  • Consistent connectivity and adoption of real-time digital tools;
  • System feedback mechanisms for data collectors themselves.

The Novel Measurement for Performance Improvement Challenge from MIT Solve and The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation seeks solutions that will offer new ways of measuring primary health care performance improvement in low- and middle-income countries. This Challenge seeks novel and improved methods that:

  • Employ unconventional or proxy data sources to inform primary health care performance improvement;
  • Provide improved measurement methods that are low cost, fit-for-purpose, shareable across information systems, and streamlined for data collectors;
  • Leverage existing systems, networks, and workflows to streamline the collection and interpretation of data to support meaningful use of primary health care data;
  • Provide actionable, accountable, and accessible insights for health care providers, administrators, and/or funders that can be used to optimize the performance of primary health care; and
  • Balance the opportunity for frontline health workers to participate in performance improvement efforts with their primary responsibility as care providers.
