Overview of IIH’s uNotify System
uNotify technology records, authenticates, relays, and analyzes dosage information in TB programs to ensure reliable delivery and reduce costs.
How It Works
uNotify includes a recording and authenticating device, a wireless link, and a centralized information management system. Treatment providers use the device to record every dose dispensed. The record is transmitted wirelessly to the server, which monitors program activity and alerts personnel when required. The management system also maintains electronic records of all patients (EMR) and automates administrative tasks.
- Reduces travel to provider sites that is currently required for checking records.
- Automatic and timely alerts when doses are missed.
- Reduces auditing required to ascertain veracity of records.
- Eliminates tedious analysis of paper records to spot irregularities.
- Allows program-wide performance tracking and reporting.
- Automates administrative tasks.
Improved productivity allows programs to serve more patients and focus on those facing the toughest barriers. Authentication and timely alerts improve adherence and cure rates.
Choice of Recording Devices
uNotify allows programs to pick a recording and authentication mechanism best suited to the context and cost-performance constraints. Devices we plan to support include cell phones, smart pillboxes, and fingerprint loggers.
