Abstract

The aim of this study was to evaluate the design and implementation of the Information System for Cervical Cancer Detection Program in Women in the Institute for Social Security and Services for State Workers.
We performed a retrospective study applying the framework and tools for Performance Routine Information System Management (PRISM). A sample of 38 subjects was interviewed in 13 health facilities. The information system’s evaluation showed an overall performance of 73.7% at the beginning of 2017. The improvement between versions was mainly observed in the quality of the data (64.6% vs 72.5%), while the use of the information was very similar (78.6% vs 78.9%). We concluded that this information system provides good information to follow-up and control of its beneficiary population. However, there is an opportunity to improve health staff training, also new indicators for health outcomes are required.
