eTIQH: Electronic Tool to Improve Quality of Health
AKDN dHRC in collaboration with the Novartis Foundation developed Electronic Tool to Improve Quality of Health (eTIQH) in efforts to address lack of access to quality primary healthcare in efforts to improve patient health outcomes.
eTIQH acts as a digital supervision tool that supports health care leadership to improve the quality of health care services provided by health care providers. The tool facilitates health system managers to monitor health facilities under their umbrella and allows them to provide performance feedback to the health workers in these facilities in real-time.
eTIQH consists of two interfaces: Android-based mobile application and a web portal. The Android-based mobile application aims to improve the quality of health care services through monitoring and reporting tools. These tools assist with organizational assessments, feedback, and evidence-based planning.
As data is uploaded from the mobile application, statistical reports are generated automatically on the supervisor’ web portal. These reports are accessible by health system managers and other stakeholders from the web portal to aid evidence-based planning and management. The development of the application was completed during 2019, after which the application was handed over to the Novartis Foundation. During 2020, plans are to implement the application in Tanzania.
