LGU Scorecard


The performance indicators in the LGU Scorecard are a subset of the Performance Indicator Framework (PIF) of the ME3. The performance indicators measure basic intermediate outcomes and major outputs of health reform programs, projects and activities (PPAs).

There are 46 performance indicators in the LGU Scorecard categorized in two sets (Set I and Set II). The two sets of performance indicators are the following:

Set I is composed of 27 outcome indicators mostly representing intermediate outcomes that can be assessed every year (See Annex 1: Data Definitions for Set I Indicators in LGU Scorecard). Set II is composed of 27 output indicators representing major thrusts and key interventions for the four reform components of service delivery, regulation, financing, and governance. They are mostly composed of health system reform outputs. These indicators are assessed only every 3-5 years, since these require more time and more resources to set up. The equity dimensions of these indicators are not measured (See Annex 2: Data Definitions for Set II Indicators in LGU Scorecard).

Set I performance indicators of the LGU Scorecard are standardized as to numerators, denominators, multipliers and data sources. The definition of performance indicators is consistent with the Department of Health FHSIS data dictionary. The other references used in defining performance indicators in the LGU Scorecard are PhilHealth data definitions and WHO definitions of indicators. The standardization of performance indicators guarantees consistency of data across various LGUs and across years of implementation. It also facilitates the automation of the LGU Scorecard collection and publication of results.

The sources of data utilized for the LGU Scorecard are the institutional data sources in the Department of Health. The availability of data on an annual basis was an important consideration for inclusion of Set I performance indicators in the LGU Scorecard.
