    Why was the project started :

    It is proposed that an application must be developed to support the recording of transactions carried out by the ASHA workers. The objectives of such an application are to: • Build a comprehensive database of all registered ASHA workers in the State • Track the training details of ASHA workers • Track the recruitment details of ASHA workers • Maintain and assess the performance (both physical and financial) of ASHA workers • Generate pertinent MIS reports at various levels of authority ASHA workers have an integral role to play in the implementation of various health programmes executed in the state. It is therefore of paramount importance to record and track the training details, recruitment details and performance details of the ASHAs and review their overall contribution in the various health programmes. Several officers at various levels of authority such as the Block Medical Officer, Taluka Health Officer, District Community Mobilizers, NRHM Program Officers and NRHM Directors to name a few can undertake periodic reviews with the help of the proposed application.
