Optical Scanning of the Mother and Child Protection Card

Aaditeshwar Seth of OnionDev Technologies Pvt. Ltd. in India in collaboration with the University of Montreal Hospital Research Centre (CRCHUM) via the Tika Vaani project, will develop a smartphone application and digital processing techniques to digitize childhood immunization data from photographs of vaccination cards taken by health workers during clinic visits and store the data in a cloud to monitor adherence and send reminders to families. They will perform an 18-month pilot project to develop the application and optimize data collection and analyses, use by health workers, and performance of the messaging service for encouraging families to get their children properly vaccinated. The application will be designed around field conditions to account for low internet connectivity and the capabilities of health workers in India and will be linked with other digital health platforms to improve the overall quality of healthcare.
