Scroll down to learn more about PSK’s Case Surveillance Tool for Malaria.
1. This tool collects data for PSK clients in Cambodia and sends it directly to PSI’s global DHIS2 database, linking to the National Malaria Control Program and other partners tracking malaria cases in Cambodia.
2. After learning the results of a Rapid Diagnostic Test (RDT) for malaria, the provider confirms whether or not the patient has the disease. If positive, the provider continues with the patient through the rest of the questionnaire. If negative, the result is captured to provide critical information such as test positivity rates.
3. The provider selects if the patient is male or female.
4. Given the choice between capturing the patient’s age or the age group, the providers determined capturing the actual age of the patient would be more valuable. The keypad is used for precision.
5. There are three malaria-positive test results presented on this page, each indicating a Plasmodium vivax (Pv), Plasmodium falciparum (Pf) or mixed (Pv and Pf) malaria case. The blue stripes over the white background represent the results of the RDT test. The provider clicks on the test that matches the patient’s.
6. The provider selects which type of treatment she/he gave the patient, or if she/he referred the patient elsewhere. Weight and age group are included for precision in both the prescription and data collection.
7. Here, the provider selects the location where the patient believes they contracted malaria.
8. To keep track of patients, the provider enters their phone numbers at the end of the short survey.
