Kerala State has launched the Name Based Information Tracking System of Pregnant Mother and Child Immunisation (NBITS) project as per directions from MOHFW, Government of India. The aim of NBITS is to Monitor Ante Natal Care checks ups of pregnant women, institutional deliveries and post natal care in order to reduce maternal mortality and tracking of children for regular immunization and to prevent drop out cases thus ensuring 100% immunization.
This mother and child information which is being captured at Sub Centre level on paper format is being converted to digital form for compilation into district data for uploading to NIC Portal as per GOI direction. The legacy data is now being entered in the excel format initially. Relevant data of all new cases of pregnant women registered from 1st April 2009 at Sub Centre level shall be ported to the NIC software.
The State plans to train all health staff engaged in data reporting to operate the NBITS software with technical support from NIC and has initiated the process
