Modern technology has provided more opportunities for teenagers to experience new things. As a result, teenagers are more vulnerable for abuse and health problems in particularly for teenage pregnancy. To minimize this issue, Health Organizations have started conducting workshops with the intention of empowering teenagers with knowledge, attitude and safety skills required to prevent pregnancy. However, teenagers seem reluctant to show their interest for studying about sexuality and talk about their issues openly. Therefore, health organizations emphasize the importance of identifying an innovative and personalized strategy to develop psychosocial competencies in teenagers. Since information and communication technology has proven to bring benefits for education through online learning technologies, the present study aimed to investigate the effectiveness of an online educational intervention to develop psychosocial competencies required to prevent teenage pregnancy. Data were gathered through interviews, questionnaires and focused group interviews from a group of female adolescents. The findings imply that psychosocial competencies can be improved better through an online intervention than a classroom-based intervention and it suggested that delivering lessons using videos, games and discussions might probably be well accepted by the adolescents. According to the findings, several paper prototypes were developed and evaluated. Based on the results of the prototype evaluation, an online intervention was developed. The final product was evaluated in a true experiment. The results of the study could be interpreted as the online intervention was successful in achieving psychosocial competencies among adolescents. Further the findings of the present study signified that the psychosocial competencies can be developed among the teenagers using videos, games and discussions as instructional aids or approaches.
HIV incidence is rising all over the world. Even though Sri Lanka is a low prevalence country the incidence of HIV is still rising.The youth and the key population groups (men having sex with men, female sex workers, prisoners, Intra Venous drug uses and transgender people) are highly vulnerable for HIV infections, but they have barriers to access to health facilities due to legal and cultural issues. The universal target of elimination of new HIV infections in 2030 as sustainable development goals could be achieved only by breaking these barriers. Specifically, the youth and key population groups would prefer to know their HIV risk for their sexual acts assessed personally without divulging the information to anyone else. Hence development of a user friendly mobile app to assess HIV risk following a sexual act and to promote HIV testing is a timely requirement. Stay safe mobile app calculates your HIV risk for the last sexual activity and gives advice on what to do next. HIV testing is recommended if needed and you are directed to the closest clinic for Sexually Transmitted Infections in Sri Lanka through GPS location.

Despite the availability of free routine immunizations in low and middle-income countries, many children are incompletely vaccinated, vaccinated late for age or drop out over the course of the immunization schedule. Our solution aims at reducing child morbidity and mortality through a comprehensive Digital Immunization Registry designed to leverage low-cost technology to improve both immunization coverage and timeliness in resource-constrained settings. Government immunization programs fail to deliver due to inefficiencies and inaccuracies stemming from demand and supply side challenges including poor data quality and usage, low worker motivation and lack of demand from caregivers. ZM is an Android phone-based platform that addresses these challenges by enabling vaccinators to digitally enroll and track immunization of every child. ZM provides a robust and dependable platform for accelerating health gains while simultaneously increasing health system efficiencies, promoting vaccine demand and reducing government costs for immunization service delivery.

Family Health Bureau (FHB) is the focal point responsible for planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of Reproductive, Maternal New-born, Child, Adolescent and Youth Health (RMNCAYH) programmes, including School Health Programme of Sri Lanka.
Good quality data on services provisions and outcomes is essential for planning, monitoring and evaluation of a programme. School Health Programme of Sri Lanka commenced in 1918, routine data collection system was continued as entirely paper-based system. It was the primary source of data for calculating national health indicators, but there were significant issues in data accuracy, timeliness and completeness.
FHB implemented this electronic information management system to overcome those issues and to reduce workload at field level. It provides both data transmission medium and data analysing tools for the user, ensures information availability for decision making process, helps preparation of annual Reports, Quarterly newsletters, progress reports, feedback letters and other documents relevant to school health Programme.
Cancer is regarded as one of the major non-communicable diseases affecting Sri Lanka. Population based cancer databases are a valuable resource for monitoring incidence and mortality from cancer and, play a vital role in cancer control programmes. Since the Sri Lanka national cancer registry is limited to collecting only basic cancer data, many important cancer related data are missed which are considered mandatory to improve cancer care. A cancer specific database can provide data which form the basis for research on cancer causes and prevention as well as to monitor efficiency and disparities in cancer care which would help improve outcomes for patients with cancer. The role of health services research and population-based outcome studies is increasingly recognized as a critical step to improving societal benefit of cancer therapies.
Tumour specific registries are different from national cancer registries; while the latter collect only basic cancer information (i.e. incidence, stage at diagnosis and mortality), the former provide rich details regarding disease characteristics, treatment delivery and outcome. The main objective of this project is to establish a tumour specific cancer database to collect comprehensive prospective data on breast and colorectal cancer and at the National Cancer Institute, Maharagama.

Frontline health workers (FHWs) such as lady health workers (LHWs) and vaccinators are often the first and only point of contact for reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health (RMNCH) services in Pakistan. FHWs are often inadequately trained, guided and have poor access to health information. Furthermore, the burden of paper-based reporting, including documenting service provision activities manually often interferes with client centered care and also results in the duplication of the same information across multiple registers and manually tallying data for reporting. Additionally, paper-based data does not facilitate continuity of care between visits or across providers or different vertical healthcare programs leading to a missed window of opportunity for effective interventions. Open Smart Register Platform (OpenSRP) addresses these strategic challenges for Health System Strengthening by enabling data collection, client management, reporting and access to real time data for actionable decision making through a single integrated electronic health record.
In Sri Lanka, in-ward mental health client data is captured by electronic indoor morbidity and mortality record (eIMMR), while outpatient data was captured through an aggregated clinic return system. This outpatient return system was not capable of generating mental health information in an effective and efficient way. Since majority of the patients are handled by outpatient clinics, we were missing large proportion of data.
Development of an electronic Mental Health Management Information System (eMHMIS) initiated, to overcome the limitations of timeliness, accuracy and quality. The eMHMIS intends to capture data using electronic formats and the previous Mental Health returns were revised to accommodate minimal data set principle with eliminating duplicate entries.
The system ensures generation of information in a real-time platform which facilitates taking managerial decisions, interpretation and dissemination of mental health information. The eMHMIS captures facility level data such as source of referrals, disorders, human resource and infrastructure data and the data regard to performance monitoring.
Emergency in-ward X-rays plays a vital and potentially life-saving role by providing information to make quick decisions. However, the process of creating an X-ray request to getting a good quality film into clinicians hand is not a simple process, given the other circumstances like the time of the day and availability of staff. The total process will burn 45 vital minutes on average, resulting in delays in decision making. If the image is of low quality, repeat procedure will take more time. Furthermore, the time is not the only problem. X-ray films would not allow accurate measurement of distance which is essential for some lifesaving procedures, i.e. inserting arterial lines.
Implemented solution incorporates the Registration, Admission, Discharge and Transfer (ADT) and Radiology Information System (RIS) modules of Hospital Information Management System (HIMS) with open source PACS and a DICOM viewer to provide a complete solution from patient registration, admission, requesting an investigation, capturing, viewing and storing the images. It automates the whole process of performing an emergency X-ray in ICU setup.
Actions undertaken are summarised below.
1. The RIS module in HIMS was revamped.
2. Obtained and integrated an X-ray digitalising cassette to the HIMS
3. Open source PACS system was integrated to HIMS
4. Open source DICOM viewer was integrated to HIMS
5. Installed HD quality laptop on a wheel and obtained a tablet computer with HD quality viewing to the NICU
Epilepsy is an important non-communicable disease characterized by recurrent convulsions due to episodes of abnormal electrical activity in the brain. It is a considerable health problem in low-income countries because people with epilepsy (PWE) are usually young, they are six times more likely to die than those unaffected, they are more likely to suffer burns and other injuries and they and their families very often suffer social exclusion in their communities. Yet epilepsy is a very treatable condition; in richer countries two thirds of PWE are free of episodes on relatively inexpensive treatment. But in poorer countries PWE cannot access this treatment because there are no doctors nearby to prescribe it. The World Health Organisation has recognized this and suggested that non-physician health workers (NPHWs) are empowered to diagnose and manage PWE. To do that they will need tools and this smartphone application has been designed to fulfill that role.
Tonic’s model of “Primary Care Plus” represents a new model for advancing universal health coverage, through mobile technology.
Globally, more than 400 million people lack access to basic primary care. Further, those lucky enough to reach a doctor often find that the experience is less “medical home” and more “medical drive thru”: the average consultation length in Bangladesh, according to the BMJ, is 48 seconds. This poor accessibility and quality of primary care has major impacts on health outcomes.
The Tonic Doctor feature of Tonic makes high quality primary care accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week via phone, chat, and video. At the same time, Tonic extends beyond providing great quality medical advice to include benefits like health insurance (“Tonic Cash”), specialist referrals (“Tonic Navigator”), and lifestyle coaching (“Tonic Life”). These features help to make comprehensive primary care accessible for millions of people for the first time.
Electronic medical record for public frontline clinics in remote underserved areas
The solution is based on the use of simple and affordable technologies (mobile phones, SMS messages, smartphones and tablet computers, the Internet and electronic mapping) so that health facilities that dispense essential medicines can report their stock levels and key disease surveillance indicators to the district medical officers who are responsible for treatment availability.
In addition to stock visibility, the system enables to collect timely and quality disease surveillance data, hence allowing all levels in the health pyramid (districts, regions, national malaria control programs, ministries of health) to monitor and support the operations in the primary health facilities – ultimately making fact-based decisions to better assess the adequacy of the resource allocation with the actual needs. Stock-outs can thus be resolved within days whereas in the past this would have taken weeks or months.
The tablet-based platform also offers high-quality training programs and educational video resources to support the continuous education of health workers.
The data collected by SMS for Life can be integrated into a country’s health information system and strategy. Implementation is tailored to the specific needs and priorities of individual countries, and the system is flexible, meaning it can be expanded to any number of health facilities, countries, programs, stock items or disease surveillance data.
Dhadkan is a Mobile App for remotely monitoring and providing medical assistance to the patients of heart failure. There are about 10 million patients of heart failure in India and about one-third of the admitted patients are likely to get readmitted or die in the next 3-6 months. The App collects patient’s data (at any desired interval) on blood pressure, heart rate, and weight, and transmits it to the authorized caregiver (a doctor, nurse or paramedic) who is linked to the patient during the initial registration. It automatically sends a notification to both the doctor and the patient, in case(s) of any drastic changes in patient’s data indicating a possibility of imminent heart failure. Thus, it not only eliminates the need for manual monitoring of each patient by the doctor but also helps them in proactively recommending precautionary action during the treatment period. Our App earned a wide coverage in national media – TV channels and newspapers (in May 2018).
District Health Information System (DHIS) is an open source software platform for reporting, analysis and dissemination of data for all health programs already used by 60 different countries worldwide including Sri Lanka, which is an important public health data platform. While the ongoing process of Verbal autopsy (VA) implementation in Sri Lanka the attention towards migrating to DHIS2 is inevitable. The countries supported by Vital Strategies for CRVS system developments are facing a common problem of translating verbal autopsy data into DHIS2 platform. Currently its done by manually sorting of IHME Smart VA tool generated CSV file fields with a DHIS2 compatible input format. It has been a major drawback faced by 16 different countries supported by Vital Strategies who has adopted OpenVA pipeline to integrate Verbal Autopsy data. With SmartVA DHIS2 solution it would enable each country to visualize, disaggregate, disseminate VA data using DHIS2 platform almost near real-time.

Safe blood is critical to treatment of postpartum haemorrhage, a condition estimated to be the cause of 23% of maternal deaths in Africa annually. Safe blood is also used for the treatment of childhood malaria, severe malnutrition, emergency medicine and surgery. Most countries in Africa collect only half of the blood needed to meet their transfusion requirements. BSIS facilitates the production of safe blood by managing information within blood services from the point of donation to the point of transfusion. In this way BSIS facilitates improved blood collection processes as well as ensuring that only safe blood is labelled and released to health facilities. The BSIS implementation models ensures that the system is safely and sustainably implemented at low resource blood services. Focusing on capacity building that promotes local ownership of the information system as well as building skills and knowledge required for system use, management and maintenance.
In Sri Lanka, close to 47 per cent of all deaths take place in hospitals and are certified by doctors using the Death Declaration (Form B33) The Death Declaration is usually written by the doctor who attended and all cause of death (COD) statistics produced by the Civil Registration and Vital Statistics System for hospital deaths are based on the underlying cause of death derived from the Death Declaration. Analysis of these statistics are vital to determine the country’s health priorities and prevention strategies. To improve the cause of death certification practices, we should have method of assessment of the quality death certification. This CoD Quality assessment tool helps to identify seven types of common errors in death certification and the tool has its own analytical capacity to generate statistical reports on quality of cause of death assessments.
