Improving quality of intrapartum and immediate postpartum care

The project is working to improve the quality of care during intrapartum and immediate postpartum periods in public health facilities through support to Avalon Information Systems Private Limited, a private technology partner and one of the Alliance for Saving Mothers and Newborns' implementing partners. Through the development of a tablet-and web-based solution for auxiliary nurse midwives this intervention is primarily intended to improve the quality of care provided to mothers and newborns by strengthening the competencies of midwives who are already in service. Features will include:

  • Enabling the tablet with instruments to monitor vital signs, automated plotting of e-partographs, and in-built decision support systems to trigger alerts
  • On-demand audio-visual tutorials
