Nakuru to digitize maternal health information through the Mama Hub application
BY MERCY KIHUGU
The County Government of Nakuru is set to pilot the Mama Hub application in Bondeni, Annex, and Bahati Health facilities to help digitize maternal health information through the digitization of the Antenatal care (ANC) booklet for mothers using the facilities.
This will help ensure timely interventions from the community level during the pregnancy journey since the Community Health Volunteers (CHV) can refer the mothers to the health facilities near them to get necessary services.
Nakuru County under the leadership of H.E Governor Susan Kihika is keen on the use of innovation and technology in service delivery in all the health facilities across the county.
This technology will be a powerful referral tool that will help in reducing maternal mortality in the county.
This was highlighted during the Mama’s Hub user acceptance testing workshop led by Director Administration and Planning, Dr. Joy Mugambi.
The application was developed by a consortium of partners including Kabarak, Strathmore Universities, Technical University of Mombasa, IntelliSoft Consulting, and e-Med Solutions.
