Update on Project Buendia <https://projectbuendia.org/>
- EMRE (electronic medical records for emergencies)
- Tablet app, form-based app, using OpenJDK
- Coming to close following pilot
- SME in pediatric nutrition
- 5th year of MSF mission (several years into nutrition crisis)
- 3 teams w/ 8 staff each visiting one site daily
- Lots of work on stability (some bogus bugs found in the field, nearly all fixed)
- 8 tablets on a server eventually – after a few hours – overwhelmed the server
- Health checks were taking 10-15% of traffic (cpu?)
- Resource-constrained server
- >6000 obs/24 hours starts to stress the architecture
- Need to make things very simple
- For example, green for go & red for stop isn't universally understood
- Filling in forms is distracting to care
- May have been exagerated b/c technology was new
- Logistics are critical in an emergency environment
- Cannot assume all tablets are always connected
- e.g., tablets secured overnight, when returned in morning suddenly overwhelm the server
- Rolling over to tablets from paper
- Security risk (a fair amount of expensive equipment brought it all at once)
- Short-term projects & projects developed during an emergency can be limiting (e.g., need more testing, code clean-up, following conventions, etc.)
- Formal evaluation process was very informative & helpful
- Formally evaluating human factors (having someone independent from the project)
- Formal evaluation is pending
- Paying down technical debt
- Questions (add your questions here)
- Is there a demo site for EMRE?
- How long could a tablet run (on battery) with screen off? Could a tablet function as a server?
- Haven't tried running OpenMRS on a tablet
- Did you observe care before designing system?
- 2nd trip to Chad, so, yes, team had observed care previously
- Did some mock environment testing and then did some early observations on site
DHIS2 Report Module Update
- "DHIS 2 is the preferred health management information system in 47 countries and 23 organizations across four continents. DHIS 2 helps governments and health organizations to manage their operations more effectively, monitor processes and improve communication."
- Configuration on OpenMRS side
- DHIS2 server/user/password
- Export Formats of the reports
- Rest API - Know Reports/Locations/Run Reports
- Teams interested to work with us - Kenya,Ghana, Thoughtworks
- Reporting Module and ADX Disaggregation
- Audio recording of the call: Listen online or download (available after the meeting)
