Regional Health Reporting System
Mobile Web Application and Intelligent Dashboard: Khyber Pakthunkhwa, Pakistan
In the northern mountainous area of Pakistan, health care providers and auditors struggle to manage, collate, collect and transfer health data. This is a critical issue that is resulting in poor patient care, staffing issues and limited access to the medication. I was part of the group Monoceros that developed a proposal mobile application enabling auditors to survey the regional hospitals and medical facilities of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. The data collected would then be transmitted to a health officer’s dashboard hosted on their desktop computer. This dashboard would act as a control point to monitor and alert the health authorities to poor medical conditions in the region.
A number of usability issues were identified such as mitigating linguistic capabilities of auditors by creating a simplistic and limited interface to reduce user error, a need for a validation mechanism to ensure truthful collection of data, GPS tracking systems and a flagging alert model supported by business intelligence to highlight depleting service and supply levels.
