Documentation Collection and Tracking Data

Most health services research evaluations require a critical understanding of the importance of context, particularly at the local market and community levels. CHCPR staff are experienced in collecting this information at baseline and tracking important contextual information, as well as details of program implementation activities, in an effort to characterize the nature and scope of the intervention related to specific health programs.
