Abstract: The system developed by the project enables 43 districts and 11 provinces to receive and analyze high-quality data, to track outbreak prone diseases, and to respond in a timely manner. While the paper-based approach takes a minimum of four weeks, this system reports epidemiological surveillance data within one week. MHIN reduced the cost of managing epidemiological data by 20% compared to traditional paper-based systems. The ability to collect, analyze, and utilize, reliable and timely data is vital for the efficient allocation of scarce resources and the empowerment of health workers. Detailed appendices/guidelines for implementation and demonstration of applications are provided.
