EGPAF - Client Tracking Application for HIV & TB Patients
The Client Tracking Application was developed in partnership with EGPAF. It is used to Track Clinic Appointments, send SMS reminders for patients, and facilitate Patient Tracing (HIV, TB) to reduce the number of missed appointments, defaulting, and LTFU patients in TB/HIV/ANC visits. The app is currently deployed in eight districts. Dimagi is now partnering with the Baylor College of Medicine Children's Foundation Lesotho to deploy the app to the two final districts in Lesotho – bringing the app to national scale.
CDC - Infomovel HIV/TB Patient Case Management
In 2015, Dimagi and CDC, along with 5 clinical partners (FGH, Ariel, EGPAF, CCS, ICAP) initiated an innovative mHealth project in Mozambique based on a mobile application that would help register, follow up on, track, and record testing of Index HIV+ patients and their direct families.
The project implements a standardized application (Infomovel) in-country. It aims to both improve adherence to HIV treatment and to identify new HIV+ patients through community testing. In the next phase (Oct. 2018 - Sept. 2019), all clinical partners will be part of a single domain that will facilitate data visibility across partners, workflow standardization, programmatic coverage and entire system interoperability with OpenMRS.
The Infomovel project has 3 main components:
CARE - CHAMP HIV Program with Key Populations
Dimagi’s collaboration with CARE Cameroon’s project CHAMP began in May 2015. Since then, Dimagi developed and deployed two CommCare applications to track key populations from the community level throughout the continuum of care, including HIV testing, monitoring rates of seroconversion, and studying adherence rates to antiretroviral therapy (ART) in five drop-in-centers across three cities in Cameroon. Dimagi also worked closely with the CHAMP team to build internal capacity for the independent management of the mHealth intervention. The application has about 380 active users currently.
“If you can’t conduct effective contact tracing, you can’t control
the spread of the disease. CommCare improved the Government of
Guinea’s ability to identify, track, and monitor people at risk
for Ebola in real-time, provided access to epidemiological data
from difficult-to-reach communities, and allowed for stronger
accountability of surveillance processes – ultimately helping
us to keep up with a fast-spreading and dangerous epidemic.”
- Anne Liu, Director for Health Systems Development, Earth Institute
“A phone with CommCare provides considerable time saving. I am
currently tracing 18 contacts, and I could save them easily with
the application... Using phones is more convenient for us as young people.”
- Alpha Sow Midiaou, Contact Tracer, Conakry, Guinea
“Thank you for helping us to gather data, refine programming,
and spread the message about our impact in fighting global
climate change and extreme poverty.”
