URC’s IPConnect is a suite of applications that provides Ministries of Health (MOHs) a comprehensive overview of facility-specific infection prevention and control (IPC) gaps, both physical and knowledge, and identify focused response actions, allow for mass distribution of guideline updates, trainings, and other information, education and communication (IEC) materials, and provide real time data for immediate and accurate action. Automatic geo-tagging and time capture will further ensure accurate response. Through IPConnect’s data analysis module, MOHs can generate periodic reports for decision making purposes, improve the quality of services and reduce bio-hazard at health facilities. Comprehensive data collection of IPC risks, responses, and guidelines will allow MOH staff to ensure appropriate provision of resources and tailored trainings and supervision activities. Real time geo-tagged data will ensure immediate response to outbreaks and other highly infectious incidents, and analyze gaps by geographic location.
