Nirogi Lanka's Mobile Health Information System

Nirogi Lanka project of the Sri Lanka Medical Association, now in its latest phase termed as Norogi Diviya, is implementing mobile technologies to cost-effectively digitize and efficiently gather the field-level Non-communicable Disease (NCD) cohort data.

Spot-On recently signed an agreement with the NirogiLK project to build and support the mobile Health Information System. The application is designed to work on Smart-Phone, Tablet-PC and Netbook with browser-based software. The decision-guided-questionnaire software application would collect the categorical information, through the mobile devices and stored in the HIS master database. Those data is then subject to analyses to find policy relevant patterns in the public health data.
