TAMAKI, Edson Mamoru et al. Methodology for construction of a panel of indicators for monitoring and evaluation of unified health system (SUS) management. Ciênc. saúde coletiva [online]. 2012, vol.17, n.4, pp.839-849. ISSN 1413-8123. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1413-81232012000400007.
This study sought to develop methodology for the construction of a Panel for the Monitoring and Evaluation of Management of the Unified Health System (SUS). The participative process used in addition to the systematization conducted made it possible to identify an effective strategy for building management tools in partnership with researchers, academic institutions and managers of the SUS. The final systematization of the Panel selected indicators for the management of the SUS in terms of Demand, Inputs, Processes, Outputs and Outcomes in order to provide a simple, versatile and useful tool for evaluation at any level of management and more transparent and easier communication with all stakeholders in decision-making. Taking the management of the SUS as the scope of these processes and practices in all normative aspects enabled dialog between systemic theories and those which consider the centrality of the social actor in the decision-making process.
