Scenario Analysis

Scenario Analysis: Bottlenecks

In this section you will identify the priority bottlenecks to implementing the intervention(s) you have selected in the intervention step above (EQUIST will automatically bring the interventions you selected from the above analysis into the bottleneck analysis step).

In the bottleneck analysis, EQUIST will automatically calculate the severity of bottlenecks based on the indicators used to measure the level of compliance with each condition for utilization, as well as the relationship between initial utilization, adequate coverage and effective coverage.

EQUIST automatically derives the baseline values of coverage determinants from the indicators validated through the national customization processes. You can use quantitative or qualitative information available to adjust this assessment to your specific context.

If you have quantitative information can directly “override” the proposed value by clicking on pencil icon besides the coverge determinants and adjusting the slider in popup which simultaneously changes color coding of the “severity of the bottleneck”.

You may want to adjust the disadvantaged coverage levels as an exercise to see how the severity of a particular bottleneck is impacted, accordingly. Once you have adjusted the baseline values of coverage determinants, you need to select the priority bottlenecks to be addressed – based on the relative severity of each bottlenecks as shown in the “traffic light” monitor. You need to focus your analysis on those bottlenecks which are ‘severe’ – that is those with red circles.
