Medic was a remote-first culture well before the pandemic’s impact on life and work as we all know it – a team of veteran champions of Slack emojis, chai tea happy hours, and cross-team strategic goal-setting. Globally dispersed with flexible schedules in every time zone, here’s how our team stayed connected and motivated – through challenge and change – in another remote year.

“PIH’s deep understanding of the CHT has allowed our partnership to thrive. It has driven uptake of product innovation, the ability to collaborate on research, and significant growth in scale and user engagement.”

Philip Ngari Project Manager.

In 2020, we had a deep focus on quality data and how data was shown in what are now best-in-class dashboards. In the background what I think was happening was that both sides of the team were gaining a deeper understanding of the app’s design configuration and of its potential.”

Elijah Gichinga App Developer

“In 2021 the commitment to collaboration from both the Medic and PIH teams along with our shared interest to drive deliverables forward was a breath of fresh air. It was exciting to see a partner running with the project and owning it.”

      Medic and a group of leading organizations serving last-mile communities launched the CHT as a digital global good and open-source project to support the development of digital health interventions, achieve universal health coverage and advance global health equity. We iterated on core framework versions 2.x and released versions 3.0 and 3.1.

      2018

      The CHT Forum was launched to serve as an open space for conversations, collaborative resource development, and free support from the CHT Community of Practice. We released core framework versions 3.2, 3.3, 3.4, 3.5, 3.6, and 3.7.

      2019

      The CHT Documentation website launched as a comprehensive resource to learn how to design, build, implement, and maintain CHT apps. New resources continue to be added to make app building easier, quicker, and more efficient. We released versions 3.8, 3.9, and 3.10.

      As steward of and core contributor to the CHT, Medic is committed to ensuring the platform’s capabilities and technical framework are simultaneously maintained and advanced, but also to supporting the CHT’s usability and adoption by the community at-large. It is our belief that stewarding and investing in the CHT as a digital public good is the best pathway to scale digital community health around the world – and may be the only path to local technical ownership and financial sustainability in Low- and Middle- Income Countries (LMICs).

      Insights garnered through global implementation and deep collaboration lead Medic to pursue a product roadmap that accelerates growth among our network of implementing and technical partners so that others can build CHT apps with greater ease, autonomy, and speed for last mile communities.

      We handle everything for you!

      We at The Gardeny are proud to offer carefully designed landscapes crafted to suit our commercial
      clients’ preferences while prioritizing sustainability.

        While our work in Mali has been ongoing for more than seven years, more than 35% of Medic’s West Africa teammates were new in 2021, representing a meteoric growth of our local representation. In 2021, we worked with Muso to make a significant back-end infrastructure change to their project, which was not only a challenge technically, but also a high stakes promise to a trusted partner who depended on our ability to deliver. This successful innovation allowed for expanded capacity of how CHWs in Mali can treat patients by building new workflows in-country serving TB and severe malnutrition.

        It was in taking on this challenge and building something new that the team truly came together.
        – Loukman Tidjani, Service Designer 

        Human-centered design (HCD) is at the heart of everything we do at Medic. Our primary goal is to build tools with health workers for health workers, ensuring anything we build first makes the work of CHWs easier and more impactful for the communities they serve. We continue to be vigilant in our approach to HCD in centering the experience of health workers to ensure simple, powerful tools can empower CHWs to reach their full potential.

        On our recent trip to Mali we visited a CHW who was still using paper and his office was just filled with stacks of paper. Just seeing the enthusiasm about what the app will make possible is enough to wake up each morning.
        – Marina Fenfack, App Developer Manager

        As the Malian government undergoes health system reform, a full consortium approach is necessary to advocate for country adoption of any intervention, including digitization backed by the CHT. The Ministry of Health is currently working toward complete program ownership, a dedicated budget allocation to support ongoing maintenance costs, and a plan for national scale following a successful pilot. 

        Medic continues to advocate for CHWs and in Mali we were able to demonstrate the value of professionalized CHWs with our research findings in collaboration with Muso and as founding members of the Community Health Impact Coalition.

        Leveraging PIH’s model of community health in consort with facility-based care means that our partnership has an explicit mandate for interoperability.

        quote

        “We were clear that we wanted to work with what was existing – PIH’s OpenMRS-based EMR, and add interoperable workflows for community health to ensure we were improving the capacity of community health workers, not adding strain with additional systems. Taking learnings from the CHT community, specifically from our work on OpenMRS integration in Kenya, we’re better equipped to get it right from the start.” – Emmanuel Kitsao, App Developer

        Product innovation for Universal Health Coverage With an increased focus on data-informed decision making, Medic and PIH moved to integrating active involvement of the health worker in geolocation data capture

        Not only does active data capture move the field toward informed consent of health data in the community setting, it also optimizes health worker household allocation, which will allow for increased household coverage and more streamlined workflows for care workers.” – Mourice Barasa, Research Officer for Monitoring & Data Systems

        quote

        “Geolocation is quite private data that can be difficult to collect accurately without consent. But we found that when CHWs are aware and data collection is consented to, the data is more accurate and you get more data points – a finding that will have a bearing on the future work of Medic and our field.” Chrisgone Adede, Senior Researcher of Data Science

        Leveraging the findings of Medic’s collaborative app interface update dubbed UHC Mode, co-designed with Muso, PIH adapted the interface and deployed UHC Mode in July of 2021. Early results indicated an increase in household coverage from below 70% in July to nearly 90% sustained from October through the remainder of 2021. 

        quote

        “When we deployed UHC Mode, it helped CHWs on the ground see the results of their work because before UHC you had to guess where you had visited, which households hadn’t been visited, but UHC Mode allowed for advanced planning and increased visibility.” – Elijah Gichinga, App Developer
