The Simple app manages more than 4 million patients—and health workers love it

The digital team at Resolve to Save Lives helped to build the Simple app, which now treats more than 4 million patients in 4 countries. This new article describes the process of using the Simple app to help manage patients with uncontrolled high blood pressure and diabetes as part of the India Hypertension Control Initiative from 2019-2022.

As of October 2022, over 24,31,962 patients of hypertension and 8,99,829 diabetes were registered in the information system of 10,017 health facilities. The median duration of registering a new patient was 50 seconds, and for recording a follow-up visit was 14 seconds in the app. High satisfaction was reported in 100 app users’ quarterly interviews. These results demonstrate high utility and usability among users, highlighting the benefits of a user-centered approach for effective digital health solutions.
