Jakarta's e-CINTA app launched to monitor growth of children
The Jakarta Post
The Cilincing community health center in North Jakarta is no longer using pens and paper to monitor the growth of children.
On Wednesday, the clinic launched an app called e-CINTA.
The head of the center, Leny Ariyani, said the online based app was launched to record children's data.
“[The app] is not only useful for the health center teams, but also teachers and instructors at early childhood education centers,” she said at the launch event as quoted by wartakota.tribunnews.com.
Leny said the idea for the app came from a team at the health center who were discussing the issue of child health in Cilincing District.
“We have to record the development of every child. Malnutrition is a serious issue because it causes delayed growth in children from the ages of zero to six years,” she said.
Leny explained that in the app, healthcare officers can write in the date of birth, detect the child's age and give parents guidance about the child’s development.
"The team will keep a record of the data so if there is a discrepancy between the age and the growth, we will ask the family to give more attention to the condition of the child, based on the child’s head circumference, weight and body growth,” she explained. (dis)
