In developing nations (like India) the vaccines storage environment (temperature) tracking is a big problem. When the environment is not optimal(temperature is not within the expected range), the efficacy of these vaccines is lost. All the health worker carries is a portable box with some cold pads (door to door polio vaccine campaign). Our connected device will ensure the safety and efficacy of the vaccines. While the traveling health workers go around, based on the vaccine type and recommended environment setting, sensor data will be sent to the cloud. Over the cloud using data analytics we can predict if a vaccine vial is about to get spoiled (predictive analysis), so that it can be moved to a safety spot on time. Also, the data will help us determine if a health worker has not followed the best practices, and take actions accordingly. Also, using smartphones and cloud, health workers can be prevented to administer spoiled vaccine. This idea can be extended to efficient storage and handling of other environment-sensitive medicines as well.
