The PROMISE Tracking Tool is a way for our stakeholders to monitor their progress towards meeting the PROMISE Barnahus Quality Standards. The current Tracking Tool is now evolving into into an even more conveninent online case management tool – PROMISE Hub – that will include a child participation system to measure the experience of children and their caretakers who visit the Barnahus.
The Hub will be based on an existing tool in use by 8 Barnahus in Sweden. It will automatically collect de-personalised, comparable European data on violence against children and track performance. Tracking daily events in each case will provide a useful case management tool, and key information collected by integrating the child consultation module may be used to influence policy, law and practice. Moreover, it will automatically track performance at each Barnahus, nationally and internationally, on meeting the PROMISE Barnahus Quality Standards. Long term, such a system could become the basis for an accreditation system for Barnahus in Europe.
Beyond these benefits, the PROMISE Hub responds to two important needs that our stakeholders require, as confirmed in our PROMISE Vision: comparable data, and easy tools for following-up the case. It also aims to provide data to satisfy the various reporting requirements that any given service may be subject to, including by donors, politicians, oversight agencies, and more.
A preview of the PROMISE Hub and a consultation with our partners was held in June and The Child Participation Tool will be presented at the webinar on the 7th of November.
When the system will be formally launched, Barnahus and similar setups will be able to buy into the system rather than develop their own, integrations into existing systems may also be possible.
