Abstract: The simplified Partograph is a concise charting mechanism used by skilled birth attendants for recording and communicating the important parameters and developments during the labour process. Compliance and correct plotting of partographs may be significantly improved with the use of technology. This paper reports the development of an Android-based smart phone/tablet application to plot the partograph. To date such a complete application is not available. We envisage that over a period of time, systematic plotting of partographs will encourage providers to use it as a decision-making tool and thereby reduce morbidity and mortality both of mother and foetus/newborn arising out of complications during labour and its sequelae.
