Swiss Emmaus Leprosy Relief Work India (SEI) is a development organisation providing both social & medical rehabilitation for people affected by leprosy. SEI's core competence is managing tertiary leprosy hospitals where reconstructive surgeries and management of reaction cases are undertaken. Patient information at the hospital is captured in the Hospital Information System (HIS). Additionally, a field based intervention was implemented with an objective to diagnose and treat early cases of leprosy in order to prevent disability. Information from 4 sources that diagnoses early cases of leprosy is captured from the field by the Divisional Coordinators (DC's) in the tablet information system (TIS) along with their socio-demographic, medical, and disability related information. Both the HIS and TIS to-gather form a vital tool that provides comprehensive patient information and facilitates in preventing leprosy related disability.
