What has been the impact of your solution to date?
In the first year of formative research, the Population Council has been working with Jacaranda Health in Nairobi, Kenya to establish that the screening tool is reliable and valid. To do this, they are delivering screening calls to 95 women at several points before and after delivery. One day after each call, women participate in a clinical screening with a live nurse, thus providing a ‘gold-standard’ comparison.
What is your projected impact over the next 1-3 years?
The next step is to test the impact of Baby Monitor on health system and patient outcomes. The research team at the Population Council is also eager to see additional features added to Verboice that will improve and expand Baby Monitor. If successful, this proposal would support InSTEDD to develop these features that, in addition to helping to improve Baby Monitor, would be available to anyone who wants to use Verboice as an IVR solution.
What barriers might hinder the success of your project? How do you plan to overcome them?
Though our tool is flexible enough to support any sort of screening process, we have had a very specific experience so far. We have to make sure that different contexts and needs are also viable with Verboice. For that, we will incorporate feedback from different partners and organization we work with.
