Web-based application that will enable private providers to message information about each referred patient into an online database.

Date: Nov 2012 – Present
Location: Cambodia
Technology: Custom Tool

 

In collaboration with The National Center for Parasitology, Entomology and Malaria Control (CNM),Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI), and funded by the Malaria Consortium Cambodia(MC), the Referral System began development in November 2012. The Referral System is an SMS and web-based application that will enable private providers to message information about each referred patient into an online database. The message from private providers will include the referral slip number and patient’s phone number. When the patient arrives at the public clinic their referral slip information and number will be sent to the system by the health center so that the information can be matched up with the original referral submitted by the private provider. With this information, the system at CNM is able to monitor patients so that they can see who was referred and which patients have been accounted for at public facilities and which have not.
