IKP Centre for Technologies in Public Health (ICTPH) aims to improve the health of poor populations through an inclusive process that scientifically integrates knowledge of factors influencing health and diseases in India, regular evaluation and impact assessment of existing health systems and integration of appropriate technology for optimal health care delivery. In this context, an Integrated Rural Health System has been designed, developed and implemented by ICTPH in their field sites that spans across 15 villages in rural South India. This project includes mapping the health system model to look at access to outreach and primary care services, analyzing the clustering of population in reference to spatial location of SVG’ and mapping disease incidence and prevalence by hamlets by tracking geotagged households from Electronic Health Record data.
