eCompliance

eCompliance has dramatically increased adherence among tuberculosis (TB) patients who have to take up to 75 doses under observation of a health worker, over 6 months.

eCompliance consists of a 7” Android tablet connected to a commercial finger print reader. The tablet has a SIM card, which communicates data to a server every 20 minutes, which then collates it in an Electronic Medical Record System (EMR).

Every patient is registered in the tablet with fingerprints. The entire treatment algorithm is built in the tablet. When a patient misses a scheduled meeting with the health worker, an alert is sent to everyone including the patient (with prior permission), health worker and supervisor. The worker has to phone or meet the patient within 48 hours, provide the dose, provide further counseling and convince the patient to re-join the therapy. This meeting is recorded with simultaneous fingerprints of the patient and worker. eCompliance also records worker attendance and eliminates absenteeism. It also records geo-locations of patients/ workers. EMR collates all data and generates all reports automatically.

eCompliance can be applied to any disease that needs long term care.
