Since 2017, Community Systems Foundation's technology partner AVALON has partnered with Jhpiego, India on Project ASMAN. This innovative health-facility-based intervention provides accurate and timely visualizations with the goal of providing quality care to mothers during the first 48-60 hours after delivery. The overall aim of Project ASMAN is to reduce maternal and neonatal mortality. As an Android-based mobile application, this labor monitoring tool seeks to overcome labor complications by including partographs and gamification techniques that seek to facilitate referral management based on needs of mothers.
As discussed in the article, the ASMAN initiative "will not only improve the way data is collected but [will] also improve the ability of the system to interpret, analyze, translate and use the data...towards improving decision making by service providers and the beginning of [a] new dawn for informed data-driven decision making by the facility as well as district and state level officials."
