DataVision has been contracted by PSI to undertake the Client Exit interviews for the Private Sector malaria Rapid Diagnostic Test project. The primary objective of the exit interview study is to assess the quality of care provided to patients who seek treatment for febrile illness from participating facilities.
Through exit interviews the project will monitor i) the proportion of suspected malaria cases that are tested with RDT; and ii) the proportion of cases testing positive by RDT that receive an appropriate anti-malarial treatment. The secondary objectives of the exit interviews are to assess: client informed demand for RDTs; provider adherence to recommended retail prices for RDT services; and provider choice between existing microscopy services (where they exist) and new RDT services for testing clients.
The project is going to be undertaken using the most renown Tablet Assisted Personal Interviewing (TAPI) Software called Tikiti, which has been used in countless of similar projects. Integrated with the GPS capability, Tikiti can exactly pin point the coordinates of the location where the interviews are taking place and push all the information to the dedicated online server for continuous monitoring and evaluation.
