Active Case Finding & Contact Tracing Application

Contact tracing is the identification and diagnosis of persons who may have come into contact with an infected pulmonary positive TB patient. The software works in two modes – Contact Tracing and Active Case Finding. In both the modes a TB suspect goes through a set of questions, if answer to any of the questions is yes, the health worker enter contact details of the TB suspect. After the suspect details are saved, the system keeps track of the suspect through each stage of diagnosis namely – Sputum Result Pending, Antibiotics Medication, Repeat Sputum Result Pending, X-ray Result Pending. The diagnosis of a suspect is termed as ‘Completed’ if the diagnostic results are indicative of TB. If diagnostic results are negative else the suspect is ‘Archived ‘into the system. This whole process let health workers realize the contact tracing methodology more efficiently.
