    •    Presented  by  Allison  Stone  ABOUT  THE  INNOVATION:    MoTeCH  explores  the  potential  for  information  technology  to  improve  health  services.    Little  research  has  been  conducted  on  the  feasibility  of  utilizing  mobile  technology  to  reform  routine  health  information  operations  and  improve  community  health  care  worker  efficiency  and  health  service  effectiveness.  Filling  these  critical  knowledge  gaps,  the  project  will  build  upon  promising  healthcare  reform  efforts  already  underway  in  Ghana.  Further,  it  will  test  the  promise  of  technology  in  reforming  routine  health  information  operations  and  strengthening  community-­‐based  health  care  services.    The  project  is  working  toward  these  goals  by:     • Reviewing  existing  health  information  systems  and  assessing  community  health  service  information  needs;   • Developing  a  community  service  delivery  system  for  testing  mobile  phone-­‐based  information  systems  for  improving  maternal,  newborn,   and  early  childhood  care;   • Developing  the  district  health  management  system  software  that  is  needed  to  accommodate  mobile  phone-­‐transmitted  service   information;   • Evaluating  the  impact  of  mobile  phone  technology’s  introduction  on  health  service  volume  and  delivery,  and  disseminating  lessons  learned   about  mobile  phone  applications  to  key  stakeholders,  policy  makers,  and  health  system  managers  so  that,  if  effective,  this  type  of  data   gathering  can  be  replicated  in  similar  settings
