MLAB

Description

A challenge to providing effective HIV/AIDS services is the timeliness with which HIV test results are returned from the regional laboratories to the caregivers. The mLAB system sends SMS messages containing laboratory results through a secure and confidential platform to the designated caregiver at the healthcare facility thereby cutting down on the turnaround time and improving on timely interventions on care and treatment.

Goal

To increase functionality of the system and its coverage in an effort to reduce the turn-around time (TAT) from the time blood samples are screened at the reference laboratory to delivery of results to the health facility.

Outcome Measures

  • Reduced turnaround time between when the sample is collected and when the result is dispatched to the facility from the laboratory
  • Reduced turnaround time between when the results are dispatched to the facility from the laboratory and when the results are received by the facility
  • Reduce turnaround time between when results are received and when initiation into care is done
