Axshya Notification Software Developed to Ensure Treatment Adherence

Madurai: REACH Axshya Project initiated the process of monitoring treatment adherence through Axshya Notification Software (ANS). The software is developed exclusively for patients taking treatment for TB at Velammal Medical College Hospital, Madurai to provide counselling throughout the period of treatment.

ANS sends daily reminder SMS alerts and gives an IVRS call on a weekly basis to patients to emphasize the importance of continuous treatment, nutrition and to avoid any loss to follow-up.

The software is expected to improve treatment outcome.
