Request Community Based Follow-Up
This workflow allows a point-of-care system to make requests to a Community Health Information System (CHIS) for patient follow-up. A common implementation is for Lost to Follow-Up whereby a clinic generates a list of patients who have missed appointments for follow-up through CHIS. During the follow-up, Community Health Workers (CHW) encourage the identified patients to attend their appointments and seek to understand the reason for non-attendance. The follow-up process may involve a CHW physically going to find the patient or reaching out through other communication protocols such as phone call or SMS.
