In order to support COVID-19 response, this application has been designed to help identify facilities that need their capacities increased, as well as note potential stock imbalances. The application promotes the completion of a facility readiness assessment for COVID-19, including the identification of gaps and tracking their status over time as they are addressed.
Using a standardized protocol such as the protocol provided here, facility readiness data and critical stock usage data can be systematically collected, formatted into actionable reports and shared rapidly with decision making organizations and individuals globally to plan for and predict facility readiness and critical stock items needed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Interim guidance on essential resource planning can be accessed directly on the WHO website.
The application was designed to reflect the WHO essential resource planning guidelines and to enable COVID-19 health facility assessments for health care facilities based on the WHOHospital Readiness checklist for COVID-19. Dimagi’s team of software engineers and implementation specialists built the app to support the following processes:
Registration of health care facilities
Facilitates facility planning readiness exercise
Capture and report details on urgent need of specific COVID-19 related resources
Report on oversupply of specific COVID-19 related resources
