Using Technology to Deliver Timely Immunization Data to the Doorstep of the Program Staff and Managers for Evidence-Based Decision Making

James Njeru of the Field Epidemiology Society of Kenya will develop an integrated electronic platform that collects immunization and health data from existing registries and automatically sends regular, user-defined reports via SMS and email to health workers to improve vaccine coverage. Healthcare facilities record their immunization data on District Health Information Systems, but access to the data is limited. To widen access, they will build a platform that analyzes relevant health data from various sources, which will improve data accuracy, displays it on dashboards, registers users, and tracks their activity. They will pilot test their platform over seven months by registering program staff and managers so that they can access the platform and receive reports. The platform will be evaluated for its ability to integrate data and produce reports such as coverage and dropout rates. Feedback from users will also be used to refine the platform.
