Thanks for writing in here and sharing your ideas with us!
I’ve worked on a little to find out work units/functionality which are needed and achievable for all the ideas shared above.
Anyone, Please feel free to refine/correct me If I went wrong somewhere understanding the needs/requirements. Especially the Team : @emerson @aniketha @ujjwal92 @vineetv2821993 @sandeepraparthi @tharunya @sharonvarghese @maany
If you have any more Ideas please share it with us
Idea 1: Mopidemi - Mobile disaster management system
Pitched by : @gneza
Mopidemi a mobile application, will educate people about deadly epidemic diseases signs and diagnosis and create a channel of communications between community health workers and nearest health clinics to diagnose the disease, and help prevent to scatter the disease across the area, Through this cycle the ministry of health will be able to trace where there is more incidence of the epidemic based on an analysis/report generated by the system and develop preventive strategies to avoid the epidemic as well as recommend preventive method.
This application will have two modules
User Module : - Wherein the users can access documentation about specific epidemic diseases including causes, symptoms and how to prevent them.
Community Health worker’s Module : - Wherein Health workers can login and create/update records of patients.
The Application will educate users about specific epidemic diseases, causes, symptoms, preventions.
The application must be able to ask series question to health workers and find out, if a patient is suspected with “epidemic x” and create a patient record.
The application must send an alert to the nearest health care facility which will send an ambulance.
If the patient is confirmed with epidemic after laboratory exams, The application must enable health workers to update patient information.
- If similar epidemic cases happen in the same location for the same time period the application will carry out mathematical analysis and detect an outbreak and inform the Ministry of Health.
I’ve added this above feature in ‘Extra Credit’ section because I felt this cannot be achieved over a weekend. Please correct me, If I’m wrong here.
@gneza One question which I wanted to ask is, How would we establish communication between community health worker and patients/users, I was not clear on this?
@gneza I’d hope that I’ve identified needed and achievable features/ work units correctly, If not please let me know
Idea 2: MobiPrescriptionProvider
Pitched by : @maany
Design a separate android app for patients that syncs prescription data for the patient from OpenMRS and reminds and maintains logs of the medicines/advised activities or treatments.
Application must sync prescription data for patient from OpenMRS
Application must remind patient about medicines/advices
Idea 3: MobiHealthMeter
Pitched by : @maany
Develop an IoT based wearable (like a wrist band or an app for Apple watch or Android wear) to sync information like pulse rate, blood pressure etc with the OpenMRS server. This could be used to automatically triage the patients based on characteristics recorded with the device. We could also alert the doctor/nurse via notifications, if anyone suddenly becomes critical.It could help during natural calamities like the Nepal Earthquake. This idea is inspired for the SSN (Survivable Social Network) project being develped at Carnegie Mellon University under Professor Bob Ianucci.
Application must sync pulse rate, blood pressure e.t.c
Application must send alert notifications to Doctor/Nurse/Relatives ,If the person’s health becomes critical.
@maany Any more thoughts on both the Ideas and sorry for choosing a bad names “MobiPrescriptionProvider” & “MobiHealthMeter” we’ll change it later
I don’t know If it is necessary but I’ve created a poll below to vote on ideas.
