MEASURE Evaluation, 2016
MEASURE Evaluation undertook this assessment to study how mobile phone user behaviour among health workers in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) may affect data quality, including data privacy, security, and confidentiality. Through this assessment, the research team also learned that technical issues associated with mobile technology can affect data quality and security. The authors documented emerging best practices and challenges, studied reports in available peer-reviewed journals and gray literature, and gathered insights through interviews and consultations in two countries: Kenya and Tanzania.
