MiracleFeet: CommCare for Treating Congenital Defects
With funding from a $1M grant from Google.org, MiracleFeet commissioned Dimagi to create a universal tool to track treatment and program data for clubfoot, a common and treatable birth defect historically overlooked in many low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). Currently, only one in five children globally has access to care—making it a leading cause of physical disability worldwide. In ten years, MiracleFeet has developed systems and partnerships to treat clubfoot in 29 countries, where over 75,000 new cases occur each year.
MiracleFeet selected CommCare to create a streamlined data collection tool, the Clubfoot Administration System (CAST), in support of its growing global network of clinics and providers who are increasing access to this critical treatment. Ninety-five percent of MiracleFeet-supported clinics have adopted the application, with CAST now in use in 371 clinics across 29 countries, storing nearly 41,000 patient records that document full treatment progress and outcomes.
