As part of a program to combat malnutrition, Madhya Pradesh, the state government in India launched a social welfare campaign using digital tool for field monitoring. The tool enables real-time monitoring of the program’s activities across all districts of Madhya Pradesh. State and district level officials were also trained on sharing analysis of data with government for timely and corrective action. This digital tool is designed such that it can also be accessed offline, thereby enabling entry of data even when internet connectivity is inconsistent

So what?

The additional training for local level officials in date sharing as well as government officials in real time monitoring, has been found helpful in identification of low-performing areas, enabling effective review of the program and rapid development of strategies to address barriers. By understanding and designing solutions for the full ecosystem of providers and policy makers, and addressing digital literacy, the designers have enabled impact at both local as well as regional levels. Where do you see a need for addressing digital illiteracy as part of digital health integration?
