mHealth Case Studies

Health-related field research & data collection using mobiles

Mobenzi Researcher is used extensively for the collection of baseline data, commonly through the conduction of household surveys, patient interviews and healthcare facility audits.

By combining the data collection capabilities of Mobenzi Researcher with the configurable workflow capabilities of Mobenzi Outreach, complete solutions for community care are now possible.

Mobiles in Randomised Control Trials

In longitudinal studies, Mobenzi Researcher underpins many of the research activities involved in randomised control trials.

Several studies have sought to evaluate the effectiveness of interventions relating to the prevention of mother to child transmission of HIV (PMTCT). These projects commonly involve community-based interventions where the familiarity and relative low cost of standard mobile phones enhances community health worker and community member participation.

By integrating with Mobenzi Researcher using the open API, complex project protocols have been simplified through the development of custom management systems which assist in reporting, visit scheduling, quality control and a host of other processes.
