Big Data and the Cloud – Piloting "eHealth" for Community Reporting of Community Performance-Based Financing in Ghana

Big Data and the Cloud – Piloting "eHealth" for Community Reporting of Community Performance-Based Financing in Ghana

SDG: 02 - Zero Hunger03 - Good Health & Well-Being05 - Gender Equality

As part of the Maternal Child Health Nutrition Improvement Project (P145792; MCHNP), the Government of Ghana will pilot a community performance-based financing (CPBF) project in 4 regions where MCHN outcomes are particularly poor. An accompanying impact evaluation (IE) will measure the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of the project (P151684). CPBF is a novel approach whereby community health teams are incentivized to improve care seeking behavior and health outcomes of communities. Performance payments are based on monthly reported results on key MCHN indicators. Due to the inefficiency of paper-based reporting, android-based software survey tools for smartphones are proposed to report on performance directly from the community level. This Big Data platform would circumvent the time delay, capacity constraints, and data quality challenges associated with paper-based reporting. Based on this pilot, the innovation could be scaled up nationwide.
