Grameen Foundation's Mobile Technology for Community Health, or MOTECH, program is working to reduce high infant and maternal mortality rates in Ghana.
Using a basic mobile phone, community healthcare providers collect patient data and upload records to a centralized database. Patient records are analyzed to establish personalized care schedules, and reminders are sent to nurses and patients about care visits. Recorded messages containing advice on pregnancy-related issues, important facts about fetal development and reminders about healthcare visits also are sent to expectant mothers.
Women are especially encouraged to have a healthcare provider attend their delivery and have their babies examined within 48 hours of birth.
