THE MEDIC MOBILE TOOLKIT
TRY DEMO (user:demo pass:medic)
Medic Mobile is a free, scalable software toolkit that combines messaging, data collection, and analytics. It's designed specifically for health workers and health systems in hard-to-reach areas and supports any language. It works with or without internet connectivity, locally or in the cloud. Our tools run on basic phones, smartphones, tablets, and computers.
EASILY GATHER INFORMATION
When health workers submit data using text messages or our SIM application, our web app schedules automated reminder messages, generates unique IDs, and confirms data submission. All the information submitted by mobile users can be viewed, filtered, verified, and exported using the reports tab in our web app.
Text messages enable real-time communication between CHWs and their supervisors, strengthening the connection between last-mile communities and health facilities. As an example, when health workers text P 3 Jane ("P" for pregnancy, "3" for number of weeks pregnant, name), Medic Mobile registers the pregnancy, creates a patient ID, calculates the expected delivery date, and schedules automated reminder messages.
For users with more complex reporting needs, SIM apps can load a menu with custom forms onto any phone with a normal SIM card. Using a paper-thin wafer that sits underneath any ordinary SIM, health workers can submit information using a menu with drop-down lists, instant data validation, and skip logic. See Demo.
Powerful Data Collection
Medic Mobile for Android
Medic Mobile's Android app is fully integrated into the Medic Mobile toolkit. The app includes easy-to-use forms with skip logic, location data, and in-app data validation. Health workers or managers can submit data by mobile internet, wifi, or SMS as a backup.
Medic Mobile's Android app extends Open Data Kit (ODK), an open-source tool, and can be easily configured for specific projects. The forms and settings can be updated in the field, and the app can notify health workers when reports need to be submitted.
COMMUNICATE WITH YOUR CONTACTS
Two-way messaging for health workers and managers
The Medic Mobile web app serves as a communication hub for health workers. Using the messaging tab or messaging buttons in our application, users can send text messages to groups or individuals. Administrators can also organize their contact hierarchy, schedule automated messages, and set auto-replies.
USE ANALYTICS TO GUIDE DECISIONS
Action-oriented lists and data visualizations
Managers can run their health system and support health workers more effectively using our analytics tools. Our dashboard and priority lists visualize activity and impact indicators, identify health workers who need targeted support, and help managers make decisions about time and resource allocation. We have developed pre-configured dashboards for Antenatal Care programs and custom dashboards for Stock Monitoring, Disease Surveillance, Childhood Immunization, and complex Antenatal Care programs.
Designed for smartphones and tablets
The Medic Mobile web app is designed to be functional and easy-to-use on mobile devices as well as tablets and desktops. Here are two examples of mobile-friendly views for messages and analytics.
