CRS health programs use mobile technology to expand access to health care from clinic to community, improve health outcomes, and build the capacity of health systems to provide quality services. Applications can equip community health workers with job aids to support client assessment, counseling, and early identification, treatment and/or rapid referral of complications.
mHealth solutions have the potential to increase efficiency, improve data collection, and enable delivery of health information to patients and providers. CRS has leveraged mobile technology to allow for real time data availability and opportunities for feedback, improve data quality, and facilitate timely reporting.
