- More than 80% of instruments reporting at any given time;
- All pertinent SMS and email notifications for case detection configured and working correctly;
- All facilities have stock information correctly captured; and
- All facilities have calibration and warranty information correctly captured.
Cameroon is the first country to complete the program. Other participating countries have seen improvement in their operations since starting the program in September 2017.
“We’re thrilled to be recognized as a GxAlert super user,” said Dr. Jean-Louis Abena Foe, Permanent Secretary of the Cameroon National Tuberculosis Control Programme, “GxAlert provides crucial diagnostic data to our clinicians to properly treat patients and is vital to our daily operations.”
“We’ve been tracking the percentage of offline instruments since the program started and early results are impressive,” said Nancy Brown, VP Implementation, SystemOne, “We plan to add another 12 countries to the certificate program by the end of 2017.”
