Main Content

Software for a web platform for storing and browsing the location and capabilities of medical facilities. It can provide useful contextual information on whether private providers exist where government wants to partner with them (or where there are gaps in private services), what services they offer and to whom, etc. The tool allows visitors to browse facilities by specialty, location, and services and provides summary reports for administrators. Once the website is published, any visitor can flag missing or updated facility information, and administrators will be notified via email. Administrators can continue to update or add new facilities, making this platform a useful tool for health service management. The code includes instructions for IT specialists to install the website onto a server. It was originally developed for several Caribbean nations.
