Abstract

The current OpenMRS Android client needs serious performance and other improvements. The goal of the Android client is to provide an alternative to access a hospital's OpenMRS instance by just using the provider's Android devices. See the full Android client guide for more info.

Considering the services offered by a hospital, an Android application can help doctors, patients and other staff a lot with its mobility and ease of use, without them having to start the OpenMRS web app on a desktop computer. This will improve the productivity and efficiency of the hospital workflow.

Extra Credit

Analytics - https://talk.openmrs.org/t/google-analytics-for-android-client/6070/3 

We need to create a way for the Android app to collect important usage data and report it back to the local server, so that the sysadmin can look at the Analytics. The extra credit will be for making the Analytics viewing system on both the app and the admin panel. Note: We will not use Google Analytics but will develop our own system so that we can have the data in the local openmrs server.
