Scrutiny of MCH records of 1977-78 and 1988 at PHC level revealed glaring deficiencies in their maintenance e.g. missing of entries., duplicate entries etc. Extent of supervision of service records was extremely low. Record linkages could be poorly established and thus present mechanism of health care delivery could not ensure continuity of care. The level of record maintenance has almost remained same over a decade period. This can be avoided by modifying the information system, making records at the PHC level simple, action oriented with built in system of evaluation and involving community in its maintenance and utilisation.
