The Better Immunization Data Learning Network (BLN) recently hosted a webinar which elaborated on RED-QI (Reaching Every District incorporating Quality Improvement approaches). The “RED-QI” approach is a process that supports addressing larger priority problems (e.g. persistently high drop-out rates) using small, rapid, doable changes that can be quickly tested and evaluated for adoption, adaption, or abandonment at the local level.

"For the research in this thesis, we mainly followed a phase‐by‐phase evaluation and user‐centered approach. Cross‐sectional surveys were initially conducted to assess the role of HEWs and identify gaps in improving maternal health care service delivery. Then, considering mobile technologies as a potential solution for improving the performance of the health workers, we developed and evaluated a set of appropriate smartphone mHealth applications using open source components, including a local language adapted data collection tool, health worker and manager user‐friendly dashboard analytics and maternal‐newborn electronic forms/protocols. This thesis includes the technical details of the application and electronic protocols."
