Haryana Health Minister Anil Vij on Wednesday launched Electronic Vaccine Intelligence Network (eVIN), Safe Delivery App and ASHA Soft mobile application, to improve healthcare services in the state.
He said eVIN App would support the Government of India’s Universal Immunisation Programme by providing real-time information on vaccine stocks and flows, and storage temperatures across all cold chain points in Haryana.
The minister added that eVIN is an innovative technological solution for strengthening immunization supply chain systems in India. It has been implemented by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (Mohfw) with the support from the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).
Vij said that during the programme, Vaccination Col Chain Managers of all 22 districts, were given smartphones. He said that eVIN is such an app, which would help in providing the information of vaccine or medicines inventories to the cold chain managers. This App would help in providing information of vaccine stocks and storage temperatures in all cold chain points of the state.
Additional Chief Secretary, Health, Rajiv Arora said that eVIN has created a big data architecture that generates actionable analytics encouraging data-driven decision-making, accountability and positive behavioral change in the public health system. He said that vaccine inventories and stocks, and storage temperatures at 675 functional cold chain points in all 22 districts of Haryana, are being digitised with eVIN. These Apps would be helpful for all the government staff, ivaccine store-keepers and cold chain handlers.
