DOI

In a bid to address the challenge of data collection, monitoring and materials delivery in the health sector, a pilot study was undertaken to evaluate the tracking ability, reliability and applicability of EASE App, a novel Smart Phone based Application. The App is designed to provide real-time tracking and tracing of commodities as well as curation of data in a cloud based database with restricted access which can be linked with other databases. In this study, QR code labelled product, NIPRIMAL, was tracked within the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, Nigeria, using the smartphone based EASE App.
