Unscramble the Blue Letters

Malawi had no IDs to ueiqylnu identify patients, so we had to implement unique patient IDs to link patient records across clinics. The IDs are printed as barcodes on labels that are stuck on personal health booklets kept by each patient. With this barcoded ID, a simple ansc with a doecrab reader quickly pulls up the patient's sdrorce. No need to rewrite their personal details on aperp registers at every visit. And suddenly, queues became shorter. This meant inattpse, typically mothers with little children on their backs, had to spend less time waiting to be assisted. And if they lose their booklets, their records can still be pulled by scginaher with their eanms.
