With the new system, the hospital can retrieve an OVC past health assessments in seconds and the records are much more accurate. Previously this was a time-consuming manual process reviewing the paper registry.
The application is also used to track 37 key performance indicators that are reported quarterly to the board of directors. These reports, which used to take 2-weeks to prepare are now ready in minutes.
The biggest and most important improvement is the ability to flag OVCs based on World Health Organization (WHO) growth statistics.
