DESCRIPTION

IeDA is as a strategy designed by Terre des Hommes aiming at supporting health care workers in primary health care facilities with mHealth tools and methodologies. IeDA provides Front-line Health Workers (FHWs) with a digital job aid for IMCI. Using a tablet device, FHWs fill in the information requested by the digital version of the clinical protocol and at the end of the process obtain the recommended treatment and advice according to the signs and symptoms of the child. The consultation data is synchronised with the server over the mobile network, and individualised reports are generated to support supervisory activities by district health teams. A set of indicators is automatically sent to the government’s health information system for national-level monitoring. An eLearning platform to provide targeted training to FHWs was recently added to the suite of digital tools and is now being tested in a few PHC facilities.
