eCompliance is a biometric based system to improve adherence. The system uses fingerprint verification and mobile SMS messaging to ensure that patients are adhering to their treatment regimens. During each patient visit, the patient and healthcare worker simultaneously scan their finger in the system, the medication is dispensed, and the treatment is recorded in the system’s database. If a patient misses a dose, an SMS message alert is sent to the patient, healthcare worker and supervisor. The healthcare worker is then responsible to meet the patient within 24-48 hours to administer and record the treatment.
Using eCompliance, Operation ASHA’s Treatment Success Rate is 85% in DS-TB (drug sensitive TB) patients and the default rate (rate of dropouts from the program) is less than 4%.
