Case study: malawy

Intro
Method
Results

- Health and Demographics Surveillance
Systems (HDSS) allow accurate electronic
data capture.

- HDSS facilitate the understanding of local
community health issues.

- Widely used HDSS do not work well in
resource-limited settings.

- HDS Explorer works offline, supports
multiple Android versions.

- Further, it seamlessly integrates with any
version of Open Data Kit (ODK).

- Aimed to assess usability of the HDS
Explorer in resource-limited settings in
Southern Malawi.

Evaluated system benchmarks:

- Synchronization speed
- Data compression
- Data validation accuracy
- Ability to manage questionnaire
- Interoperability
- Manages participant follow-ups.


The system was assessed in the managing of:

- Cross-sectional census
- Surveillance studies capturing about 6,000 individual health center visits
- 10 community and hospital-based cohort studies including 102,804 subjects.

- HDS Explorer integrated with ODK and prevents missed and repeated eCRFs and missed follow-up visits.

- Synchronization was fast. Validation scripts prevented capture and synchronization of incorrect data.

- It was easy to learn.

- Thanks to its data compression algorithms it keeps information of key demographic events throughout one’s life span.

- Media files allowed real-time queries based on longitudinal data, for accurately capturing anthropometric measures.
