CRVS tools

CRVS tools

One of the fastest ways to improve the performance of complex systems such as CRVS in low resource settings is through the use of smart tools. The revolutions in information and communication technologies including mobile technologies combined with computing technologies that allow more integrated data systems are providing a huge opportunity to accelerate progress in achieving high completeness, coverage, and timeliness of CRVS operations. 

We have also included innovations in training approaches and frameworks that assist the partnerships and skills necessary for designing and implementing the CRVS systems re-engineering that many countries need. This section of the Learning Centre provides brief one page introductions and links to some recently developed and emerging CRVS tools. Included in this edition are a number of tools of special relevance to death registration. 

They include:

ANACONDA: a tool for assessing the quality of medically certified death data and ICD-10 coding. 

Automated verbal autopsy: a suite of tools for estimating the underlying cause of death where there is no physician certification possible.  

CRVS system assessment tools:

  • Rapid Assessment tool:  first step in developing an understanding of the current structure and functioning of national CRVS systems.
  • Comprehensive assessment: comprehensive assessment tool that provides guidance on the different aspects of CRVS systems. 
  • Legal framework and review: tools for updating and improving the legal and regulatory foundations of CRVS. 
  • Process mapping: a methodology for managing the complexity in CRVS systems and understanding and re-engineering CRVS processes.
