Every application (eCompliance, eDetection, eAlert, etc.) is loaded on tablets, which have internet connectivity. They upload encrypted data on a server every few minutes. The server/ cloud collates it into various reports. Data is regularly analysed by supervisors. EMR has eliminated the staff needed for collation and analysis and reduced supervisory and administrative costs.
The data from EMR has also been analysed by research organizations. A research paper based on this data was published by professors from the University College London in the Journal Public Health Action .
With the EMR, a CHW can see the progress of an individual patient, the National Director can see the progress of the overall program. This is a unique feature of Operation ASHA’s mHealth applications.
