Interactive health information system to detect Japanese encephalitis in Asia

eploy appropriate resources.

"This solution will break new ground in public health in India by providing district level managers access to timely data," said Madhu Krishna, country manager for Voxiva India. "This data will allow analysis of critical health information for rapid response and control of disease. It also will demonstrate how effective use of communication and information technology can save lives, and support health care even in remote areas."

Health managers also can use the system to analyze information about confirmed JE cases or suspected encephalitis cases and share technical information and resources with health workers. The Voxiva system will allow health managers to work collaboratively on disease prevention and control with international experts working on diagnostics, vaccine development and introduction, and clinical treatment.

"We are eagerly looking forward to seeing the Voxiva system put into effect. It should greatly facilitate our work, " said, Dr. Mastan Rao, Director of Health in Andhra Pradesh. Rao noted that the PATH project should help health workers to share information more efficiently, and help strengthen clinical services.

Based on the progress of the pilot, the system could be adopted for national use in India or for other diseases of interest, and ultimately improve national and subregional disease surveillance networks in other parts of Asia.

"Voxiva's innovative approach holds huge potential, because the system allows the information to be immediately available to all levels of the health system," said Dr. Julie Jacobson, PATH's Director of the Japanese Encephalitis Project. "Surveillance will be made easier by using Voxiva's system to share data. Control of the disease can be improved by getting information to health workers where they need it, when they need it.
