Information about the project
Lacak Malaria (Mobile/Featured Phone Rapid Malaria Reporting System in Rural Area)
The SHMC teamed up with Pulse Lab Jakarta (PLJ) to develop a mobile phone-based malaria reporting system, which effectively sped up malaria response. Based on UMB or USSD(Unstructured Supplementary Service Data) user simply text number codes to the Lacak Malaria system . Integrated into the system is a simple dashboard for aggregation and visualisation of data on malaria patients and medicine stock. With this system, SHMC reduced its data collection time by 19 days, making it much more responsive for the treatment of malaria. To date, SHMC has successfully managed the implementation of LaCaK Malaria on schedule, at nearly all local health centres across the South Halmahera district. This is the first time that a mobile phone-based system of this sort has been implemented to improve malaria reporting in Indonesia,
