Additional Notes for an Android Project

  • Google/Safaricom has announced the release of an $100 Android phone to the Kenya market
  • For large deployment need HTC or Brightstar for phone supply
  • Ampath has done a large rollout with a 20% device failure rate – mostly due getting refurbished phones
  • May be better to buy the phone locally
  • Lock IP address on sim card so it can only talk to the OpenMRS server
  • Or set up proxy server and block outside sites
  • More info can be found on the OpenMRS 2.x Android Client here:  OpenMRS 2.x Android Client
