The first of its kind in the country, WAH brings together process management innovation and innovative wireless, mobile, and digital telecommunications technologies to create a clinic-centered health information platform that aids Rural Health Unit (RHU) clinicians improve health care delivery. It features an open-source Electronic Health Record (EHR) system from which new technology modules such as the Synchronized Patient Alerts via SMS (SPASMS) system, EHR-Lite (health data recording and reporting at the point of care), and Statistics Aggregator (web-based health information dashboard) take off. With an open-source platform that is supported by an open-partnership strategy for replication, WAH has found the effective mix that produces results replicable in all parts of the country.
