Major outcomes of CSC Starts with sharing Information and understanding the various services provided. Introspection by the service provider as to what the basic objectives of the services provided are. The service user or the community also gets to understand its entitlements and its obligations. Becomes a catalyst to social mobilization. Becomes a catalyst to managerial changes in administration. Becomes a guide to the policy maker. Generation of social demand with a sound understanding of the limitations of the govt. machinery. Beginning of a adult to adult dialogue.
CSC: A Tool for measuring outcome against societal needs Administrative machinery or the service providers tend to measure their success against their targets and what was planned to be achieved and not against the final projected outcome. Example: Distribution of iron tablets to pregnant women. The target is achieved in terms of the distributed number but is this is a worthless indicator of success if there is a general apathy to the consumption of these tablets and hence there may be no significant impact on incidence of Anemia. CSC as a tool will be able to identify this gap in sensitization of women before making such provisions. Promotion precedes marketing.
CSC: A Tool for assessing non- quantifiable success. Success of Health, Nutrition and Education programs measured only in quantifiable terms such as allocation made, schools or hospitals built, books distributed, immunization done, Pills distributed etc. Thrust on quantity rather than quality because as it is said, what can be counted gets measured, what gets measured gets rewarded and what gets rewarded is really what counts.
CSC: A Tool for assessing non- quantifiable parameters. Not all Health Education or Nutrition parameters can really be quantified. Hence the administrator or the service provider has a very impressionistic, subjective and a personalized view of the services provided. A need has always been felt for a objective factual, impersonal tool for assessing the success with which the service provider has met.
CSC: A Tool for assessing non- quantifiable parameters. Assessment of non quantifiable as well as quantifiable services provided. Assessment is factual without loosing its essential personalized character. Services provided are assessed vis-a-vis the needs of the community rather than fulfillment of the target of the administrative machinery.
CSC: A tool for general evaluation and monitoring Community Score Card is an efficient tool for quick and random assessment of the need, status, quantity and quality of services being provided to the community. Such random and quick assessment can prove more effective and efficient than routine inspections and visits which provide limited input to the administrator.
