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. 

CRVS system assessment tools:

ICD tools:

In-development tools:

  • CRVS digital 
    notification 
    and 
    registration: 
    for improving efficiency
  • CRVS verbal autopsy sampling strategy tool: for estimating how many VA’s need to be done to provide 
    policy 
    relevant information on community deaths
  • Medical Certificate of Cause of Death Assessment tool: a tool for assessing physician performance in filling the medical certificate of cause of death (MCCOD).
  • MCCOD interactive on-line training tools for reinforcing in-service skills for medical 
    certification of cause of death 
    for continuing medical education credits, and others 
  • Open CRVS: for integrating and managing CRVS information flows

Verbal autopsy tools:

  • Automated verbal autopsy : a suite of tools for estimating the underlying cause of death where there is no physician certification possible.
  • Verbal autopsy costing tool : a tool for understanding the resources requirements and costs of adding verbal autopsy to CRVS systems.
