Problem

Equipping rural health facilities across the Pacific with adequate life-saving medical supplies is an incredibly complex challenge. Pacific leaders in healthcare have moved to adopt digital technology and have made good progress to improve availability.But these new supply chain management systems are capable of doing a lot more.

Solution

Front line nurse and pharmaceutical staff will be able to place and track their orders, digitally helping to further enhance availability in the areas where supplies are needed most. These additional capabilities will allow local health care systems to respond efficiently and effectively in times of major disease outbreak, natural disaster or other mass casualty events.

Innovation Description

A collaboration between software providers mSupply and their partners Beyond Essential Systems to transform the availability of medical supply information in up to six participating partner countries in the Pacific region. Partner governments will have an easy to use digital dashboard showing real time essential medical information. Health planners and other key decision makers within local health systems will know where their medical supplies are stored even in the lowest levels of the system. Additional capabilities will allow local health care systems to respond efficiently and effectively in times of major disease outbreak, natural disaster or other mass casualty events. Excitingly, Tupaia is now overlaying data from even more sources, incorporating HIS data on top of LMIS and data collected through Tupaia MediTrak. Soon, we will also incorporate information on medicines quality and pharmacovigilance.
