Optimal Sample Transport / Facility Sample Transport request

Optimal Sample Transport
Optimal Sample Transport

The project is using USSD based cell phone application which is allowing health workers to request Riders for Sample Transportation services. This system aims to solve the problem of unnecessary trips and reduce sample turnaround times by installing a low-cost system for communicating Sample Transportation demand from Health facilities to district Sample Transportation operators and integrating it with optimization software for scheduling routes on a daily basis using powerful analytics. In other words, health facilities report the volume of samples that they have on a daily basis using USSD codes of the various targeted facilities.
