Evaluation could be performed through various methods. Some experts believe in three general methods including goal-based evaluation, goal-free evaluation and criteria-based evaluation. While some others consider two main methods for evaluation which are objective or quantitative and subjective or qualitative methods. Formative and summative methods are other classification of evaluation methods regarded by a number of researchers. This review represents various evaluation methods in health information systems and introduces the objectives and components to be evaluated in such systems.
