Maternal and Child Health Care Networks

Presenter: Héctor Gallardo Rincón, Carlos Slim Foundation

AMANECE is an integrated model aimed to deliver quality maternal and child health services through care networks. Currently operating in Mexico’s primary and secondary level clinics, the model incorporates innovations to monitor pregnancies, deliveries and newborns. The model uses different technological tools such as a tablet-based application for community health promoters; a systematic risk assessment tool for health care providers at the primary care operation level; an online platform that provides second-level clinics with access to health information collected at the primary level; and the Electronic immunizations card, a tablet-based application with NFC technology to generate timely and quality information to ensure that individuals receive complete immunization schemes.
