This is an android app. It texts updates about how the mother and baby are doing after they leave the clinic to the doctor. It has check boxes for the mothers/family members to use. If mother/child exhibit symptoms will send an SMS message to the clinic to inform the doctors. This will also allow the clinic to have a contact number for the mothers.
In the future, the plan would be to have another part for the doctor, where the doctor can add new patient accounts and store patient information. There would also the ability to call the doctor directly if there is an urgent issue. Ideally, the clinic would have the family download the app before they leave the hospital. The account for the mother would be set up then. Every time a family member completes the app (without trying to game the system), a random code will come up that can be used to give financial incentives/cell phone minutes to the family. There would also be reminders for the family to complete the app at designated intervals: 1 day after birth, 2 days, 5 days, 1 week, 2 weeks, 3 weeks, 1 month, 2 months etc. There would also be times when the app would ask for a photo of the baby, to ensure the baby is alive.
