All women need access to antenatal care in pregnancy, skilled care during childbirth, and care and support in the weeks after childbirth. All births should be assisted by skilled health professionals, as timely management and treatment can make the difference between life and death for both the mother and the baby.
The Government of India has been focusing on initiatives to improve maternal health indicators. Using simple technology solutions, CDFI has developed ‘Maternal and Child Care Solution’ to effectively track maternal & child health indicators right from the time pregnancy is detected till 14-week vaccinations of new born.

ASHA and ANM workers register and collect data of pregnant women on the mobile app.
The action dashboards enable officials to visualize the data in spatial and graphical formats which are easy to read and understand making data analysis much easier
Armed with this information, the officials can focus on each individual’s requirement and send them to an institution with the appropriate care facilities.
CDFI’s maternal and childcare solution was first launched in South West Garo Hills district in Meghalaya in June 2018 where the number of institutional deliveries was at 44% (one of the lowest in the country). Through continuous use of the solution, this number rose to 76% in June 2019 and further to 88% in October 2019 above the overall national average.
Presently the solution is helping Meghalaya Government implement Meghalaya’s Measurable Outcomes in Transforming Health Sector through a Holistic Approach with focus on Women Empowerment (MOTHER) across the entire state.
