Support of Medic Mobile in Burundi

Hi

I am in Kenya looking to support a Medic Mobile implementation in Burundi. Currently the CHWs collect data of the patients - upload it and then that is it. I do not know where the data goes. Can someone kindly explain to me where the data goes and how we can utilize it for patient care?

regards

Mack

Thanks for the question @mack

The data that the CHWs fill and submit in the forms is replicated from their devices (phones or tablets) to a server and stored in CouchDB. From there, you can use cht-couch2pg middleware to replicate the CouchDB databases to a relational PostgreSQL database. With the right queries, you can come up with many different views that can feed into a dashboard platform such as Superset.

See the architecture diagram that details the different pieces of a CHT project. I hope this helps.

Thanks for the information.

Regards
