Table I : Functionalities of Hayat

Application – for frontline health workers (Vaccinators, LHWs, CHWs, and CMWs):

The mobile application includes various interfaces, each customized for vaccinators, Community Health Workers (CHWs), Lady Health Workers (LHWs) and Community Midwives (CMWs).

Vaccinators use Hayat in the field when to record information as they administer vaccines to children, track defaulters and raise awareness while CHWs, LHWs and CMWs log data on MNCH services, track patients and raise awareness during their field visits.

The app helps digitize the paper-based forms for vaccination and maternal care services. Through the app, front line health workers can register families in the database. Each family receives a separate QR code, which acts as the source identification of the respective family and their data. The data is uploaded on a central server while the movements of the health workers are tracked through GPS as the conduct activities in the field and record information.

The mobile application also stores awareness videos that health workers can show to educate parents, family members and mothers during health awareness sessions.

Supervisory Module for District Supervisors of Vaccinators and LHWs:

The supervisory module provides a comprehensive, complete solution for data validation and auditing. Through the app, LHS and District Supervisors for Vaccinators are now able to seamlessly conduct supervisory activities remotely. The module helps them 1) plan their daily agendas; 2) monitor the quality of health care services provided by health workers or health facilities through checklists and 3) verify monthly reports for LHWs and vaccination reports for vaccinators.

Web Portal – for health care administrators and government officials:

The web portal consists of a dashboard, which displays aggregated data and a GPS tracking system which allows the government health officials and health care administrators to remotely monitor frontline health workers’ activities and movements visually. The tracking system can keep a track of log- in and log-out timings in real time. The portal provides supervisors with a record of registered families; maternal health coverage stats (antenatal care, deliveries, and postnatal care), vaccination stats and provides routine immunization and MNCH service coverage reports.

An SMS panel helps health care administrators/supervisors send text messages to members of registered families about maternal and child health care services to influence behaviour and raise awareness regarding the accessibility and availability of services. For child services, supervisors can analyze and monitor data for i) monthly immunization; ii) vaccinator tracking; iii) vaccinator performance; iv) defaulter children; v) child illness and outbreaks; vi) child growth monitoring and vii) dropout rates.

In terms of maternal services, administrators and managers can monitor the information on i) deliveries, ii) mother illnesses and outbreaks, iii) ANC and PNC visits and iv) health records of pregnant women.
