Ethiopian Midwives Association Developed Online Membership Registration System

The eService system is designed to provide a common platform for online transactional services. Using the system, government organizations render electronic public services to citizens, non-citizens, businesses, and governmental and non-governmental organizations. The Ethiopian Midwives Association is a pioneered civil society organization to start this online service. Midwives and other customers wherever they are could get online services rather than coming physically to the head office which takes days and need budget. A customer should login using his/her account or can register to the system to get a user account and continue with his/her application. After locating the electronic form for a particular service for instance membership, the midwife fills out all mandatory fields, uploads documents, and submits the request. After submission of a request, the system generates automatic application reference number for the customer for to track their application status. The tracking number is used to track the status of the user applications, taking appointments for visit, and also is used to submit any additional supporting documents and information that has been requested by the service provider (EMwA) in the middle of the process so as to finalize the service provision. Membership registration and renewal, CPD accreditation service, registration to attending event or survey and reporting of CPD providers and courses are among the services planned to be live.
