CRVS innovations and research

Identifying and rectifying key gaps in CRVS knowledge has the potential to rapidly improve the coverage, quality and use of CRVS systems. Such innovations include applying an enterprise architecture perspective to systems analysis to understand the particular national CRVS organisation, processes, workflows, data, and system functionality. The future of all health information systems, of which CRVS systems are a key part, will increasingly use mobile and internet enabled devices to extend and speed the flow of information. Developing new technologies for capturing and communicating CRVS data is a critical component of new innovations. Innovation is also needed in integrating data generated from verbal autopsies into routine systems, along with incentives for improving death registration, and developing new data quality assessment tools and data visualizations.
