IMG_20140317_092719_760MHP Salud strives to equip Promotores(as) with the most useful technology to help them reach more program participants, serve them better and offer a more complete web of resources.

In 2011, MHP Salud partnered with Dimagi– a social enterprise that makes open source software to improve healthcare in developing countries and for the underserved – to develop a mobile application for data collection and evaluation purposes.

The “app” streamlines data coding and entry processes for MHP Salud’s program managers and allows MHP Salud’s CHWs to submit demographic data, referrals, and other information using smart phones.

MHP Salud’s Promotores(as) report that the app is extremely useful and easy to use. They request and receive ongoing training to develop their skills and expertise related to mobile technology.
