Hyderabad-based Kellton Tech, who is a leading partner along with consortium partners CMS Computers and IntraHealth Inc., said in a statement issued in Hyderabad that, State Innovation in Family Planning Services Project Agency (SIFPSA) has awarded it with Rs 27.5 crore allotted for the mSwasthya project for a mobile healthcare platform which will improve maternal and infant mortality rate outcomes in Uttar Pradesh.
By this project the applications will come up which will be able to efficiently help the health workers in their activities by enabling them to collect health data concerning mother and child in real-time and supporting them in providing health care. Initially the project will be implemented in five districts of UP including Mirzapur, Faizabad, Sitapur, Bareilly and Kannauj. And then the solution will be extended to the remaining 70 districts of Uttar Pradesh as planned by the SIFPSA.
Currently Kellton is handing over the smart-phones and tablets to 10,252 ASHA (Accredited Social Health Activists) workers, 1719 ANMs (Auxiliary Nurse Midwife) and 300 people, comprising medical officers, medical officers in-charge and State Innovation in Family Planning Services Project Agency (SIFPSA).
In order to cope up with the latest technology trends, the new application will be an enterprise solution and will be hosted on cloud, facilitating remote access and enrolment through 3G-enabled mobile devices from across the region. Not only that but the cloud will be the central database to capture and store all the data. The app will be primarily used in the rural environments where the solution will be optimized for low bandwidth and intermittent connectivity.
“The acquired social data will be an excellent repository for analysis, and through advanced analytics it is bound to yield meaningful information that can serve as the baseline for future public schemes and policies.” – Kellton, in the statement.
“This three-year project is slated to be the largest enterprise mobile application rollout in the health and e-governance sector of India and also possibly of the world.” – Karanjit Singh, CEO Kellton Tech.
