SRINAGAR: One day orientation training programme on ANMOL (ANM Online/Offline) software was inaugurated on Wednesday at Regional Institute of Health & Family Welfare, Nagrota, Jammu by Director General Planning & Statistics, NHM, J&K Satvir Kour.
An official statement issued here said the training programme is being conducted for the participants from three districts of Jammu, Udhampur and Doda and would be completed across all districts in a phased manner.
ANMOL (ANM Online/Offline) is a software application developed by Dhanush InfoTech as a special project funded by UNICEF in collaboration with Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, Government of India.
ANMOL is installed on handheld tablets to be used by the ANMs (Auxiliary Nurse Midwife) for the purpose of data entry of the services delivered to pregnant mothers and children at village level.
ANMOL, as the name signifies, is a unique and innovative solution with capability of data entry in both online and offline mode. This helps to overcome the issue of internet connectivity and also helps the ANM to organise and plan routine activities in a better manner through user friendly interface.
