A Hyderabad-ba`sed IT services company has announced that it has developed a mobile App that would allow Accredited Social Health Activists (ASHA) in Andhra Pradesh to access requisite guidelines on pre and post- pregnancy care anywhere, anytime.
The mobile application has been developed by Kellton Tech Solutions Ltd, launched in national capital New Delhi recently, to coincide with Andra Pradesh State Chief N Chandrababu Naidu's 65th birthday in the presence of State HealthMinister Kamineni Srinivas and others, said the company ina press statement.
At the launch occasion, Srinivas had distributed about 50 tablet devices, with the newly launched mobile app pre-installed in the gadget.
The company disclosed in the press statement, "As part of Naidu's vision to transform the healthcare landscape of AP, an initiative to provide pregnant/lactating women and newborns with high-quality healthcare using latest digital technologies was introduced; this needed ASHA workers to have constant access to easily-retrievable information.”
The company also assured that it stepped in to develop a full- fledged, easy-to-use interactive guidance system with Telugu, the regional language, as the medium of instruction to enable ASHA workers to better assist those in rural areas.
"The audio-visual application further allows ASHA workers to record the health parameters of women and children and store data for future reference. Workers are sensitised on recognition of danger signs in pregnancy, symptoms of high- risk pregnancy, desired nutritional status and timely immunisation, among others," said the company statement, which further added, "The ASHA workers, thus empowered, would be better- equipped to assist women and children whose condition is poised to benefit from regular monitoring.”
