Kochi: Codeyssus Labs, a Kochi based technology start up company has launched a web portal named ‘Alertable’ to provide periodic alerts about vaccination schedules to parents. Once the parents register on the website (alertable.in) with their email id and phone number, and provide their child’s date of birth, they will get periodic SMS alerts to their mobile phone informing them when it is time to provide vaccinations for their children.
Parents who have registered earlier may view details regarding vaccination schedules by just entering the email id and phone number combination, thus making the lengthy process of registration quite redundant. On logging in, parents will receive a host of information about vaccination schedules including names of vaccines and scheduled dates and a detailed timeline about the child’s upcoming and completed vaccinations. Tracking vaccinations are also made easy with the facility to mark administered vaccines as ‘done’. Parents may use the website to register up to two children.
Alertable was developed a group of enterprising engineering graduates – Blesson Mathew Sam, Anup Sam Abraham, Manu Mathew Thomas, Melvin John and Rahul Ramesh, all from the College of Engineering at Chengannur; who head Codeyssus Labs. The idea behind Alertable came when these young entrepreneurs chanced upon the results of the National Health Survey 2008.
“The survey results were quite alarming for us; it said that barely 44 per cent of children in India get vaccinations. The severity of this situation prompted us to start working together to work on what we are best at – a technology-based solution for this bottleneck”, said Blesson, CEO of Codeyssus Labs.
Inspired by the early accolades about Alertable, Codeyssus is planning to extend the reach of the initiative by joining hands with various hospitals in the city and the Cochin Corporation. The company has already approached a few hospitals and has offered to integrate their application with existing systems so as to facilitate vaccination tracking for babies born in these hospitals. The company aims to add more features and functionalities to Alertable and thus develop it into a complete healthcare suite.
Codeyssus Labs works with the latest in open source technologies and focuses on building cloud based business applications for their clients.
