This article introduces Suraksh, a mobile application that focuses on intensive intrapartum monitoring, shedding light on the novel concept of “distance monitoring”, incorporating the pressing need of the hour for complete digitalization. It aims to reduce the burden on under-resourced set-ups, improving the turn-over time, ensuring timely intervention and referrals along with strengthening our clinical database for retrospective and observational studies. It targets paperless documentation and patient care in the advent of the “new normal” of minimal contact in health care set-ups. While this application is in its pilot phase, it has shown promising compliance and acceptance at our tertiary center, Sri Ramachandra Institute of Higher Education and Research, amongst senior obstetricians, postgraduates, interns and nursing staff. We welcome and promote adoption and wider usage of this application across all tiers of obstetric care.
