The Smart Paper Technology (SPT) is an innovative digital mother and child health system based on Smart Paper Technology. The innovation allows for mother and child health data to be captured on paper by health workers and then scanned, digitised, and uploaded onto a hospital management system. SPT delivers all the benefits of electronic health record systems, and enables smooth implementation in clinics and areas without electricity, connectivity and security. Recording in paper forms means that onerous and potential erroneous administration and reporting routines can be reduced by 72%. Implementation and maintenance is also faster and more affordable compared to any other technology.
