Innovation Description

Kenya uses civil registration and vital statistics(CRVS) surveillance without integrating into its citizen??s lives, resulting in low birth registration rates [1, 2]. We introduced a cloud-based electronic medical records system(EMR) to register mothers and infants at maternal and child healthcare(MCH) clinics called WIRE. Our system registered 9274 mothers and infants while recording MCH activities. However, the system does not track infant??s vaccination histories or calculate immunization rates
