A Booth  provided by SID for invited guests to introduce NextGen applications

This demo flow provides a complete overview of the implementation of the NextGen Program which involves various stages of activities in it. The process begins with family registration of pregnant women by cadres via the OpenSRP 2.0 application, which includes examining toddlers at the posyandu, synchronizing the application, and examining pregnant women by midwives. Data collected from various activities is then processed to find service gaps (care gap) and data quality, which allows the team to provide assistance and reminders to pregnant women via WhatsApp messages.

Next, the ultrasound visit schedule is arranged via the Call Center. The demo from the data analyst team highlighted effective data processing and demonstrated a dashboard that could be accessed by village heads, heads of community health centers/programs, health departments and other stakeholders. The entire flow of this demo emphasizes technology integration, pregnancy monitoring, mentoring, and dashboards for action as an integral part of the NextGen Program to improve health services for pregnant women and babies and the wider community.

After the presentation and demonstration of the NextGen Program, a question and answer session raised important issues. Key focuses include community accessibility, village participation, data security, and integration with existing health systems. Questions also arise regarding community understanding, and the direct contribution of applications/programs. Responses from related parties show application mapping by the Ministry of Health, emphasis on data transformation for village access, and hopes for integration with SatuSehat.

Even though there are concerns regarding the large number of applications in health, it is hoped that the NextGen Program can provide direct benefits with data used in the regions, for the regions and back to the community. This expands the reach of using information for action, and remains connected to the existing health system because the NextGen system also uses the same data exchange standards as those used in Indonesia, namely FHIR (Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources).

The NextGen Program Launch Activity was a two-way interactive event

Discussion of follow-up plans provides an opportunity for stakeholders to shape future plans for the NextGen Program. The implementation team, after discussions, formulates a comprehensive plan in close collaboration with various parties. Training and follow-up implementation plans will be prepared together. With this plan, it is hoped that the NextGen Program can run effectively and increase health of mothers, children and the wider community.
