To date, neonatal mHealth SMS programs have taken two forms: reminders sent to expectant mothers, and reporting done by certified health workers. mBaby asks the question - what if we combined the two, making the reminders actionable? Real-time reminders and concrete calls-to-action will help health workers get a clearer picture of their patients' well-being and habits. In addition, these actionable reminders will ensure mothers get quality information and concrete steps to keep themselves - and their babies - healthy.
In this phase, we will provide more detailed feedback to the concepts and ask the authors and community to work together and refine the concepts with more details. We might ask how your idea will be staffed, or what specific features the software might have. It's all about giving time to shape the ideas into something more substantial.
