Integrated AAA App

The Integrated AAA App is a unique solution which digitally links the three government frontline health workers (FLWs) in each village. These are the ANM (a nurse-midwife), the ASHA (community mobilizer) and the anganwadi worker (overseer of nutrition in pregnant and lactating women, and pre-school children) - they are together referred to as the AAA.

​These three women are responsible for providing health and nutrition services to the last-mile community across villages in India.

Problem

  • The three frontline workers do not team up, even though they serve the same population. They have different supervisory and reporting structures, databases and work cultures.

  • They are expected to maintain numerous voluminous registers, with hand-filled and redundant data that hampers effectiveness and efficiency. 

  • Data registers, metrics and collection are difficult to manage and hence, it is hard to identify, prioritize and provide focused care to high-risk beneficiaries.

Solution

The app enables the AAA to utilize a common database, carry out their routine tasks with ease and maintain integrity of data. It also generates essential government reports, provides an online supervision dashboard and enables referrals. While some technology solutions for frontline workers exist, none bring all three together.

Through all this, the workers can focus on their primary responsibility of delivering care, aided by data. The app has significantly improved the identification of critical beneficiaries through the use of service delivery data. The app provides health workers with important information regarding different services while registering a beneficiary. It depicts summary data to supplement line-list data, to support data-based decision making.
