"'I'm a Health Worker' - Abduaraman Gidi" made by IntraHealth International.
As access to mobile technologies expands, improving their effective use is key to strengthening data. This article discusses emerging lessons from rural Rwanda on CHW use of mobile technologies for health interventions. Technical characteristics such as reminders and alerts were seen to be the strongest predictors towards use, while user characteristic (age) did not influence use. Programme characteristics, specifically supervision and training, had mixed findings. The authors conclude the importance of taking into account social and technical factors in the implementation of mHealth projects.
