What is the Problem? CARE Rural Health Mission covers around 200 Villages in West and East Godavari and Ranga Reddy Jilla Small Clinics that are supported by a Village Health Worker for each village and a Tri-Weekly Doctor
Process of Diagnosis at Clinic Database Follow-Up Treatment Medical Service Patient Identification
What do they want? They want an easy method to uptake information from the patients in the villages Existing data collection on paper has been Inefficient Small scope
Methods to Digitally Record Laptops or Desktops A specific electronic device Mobile Phones on Android or iOS Tablets
Database (Cloud- based) Android OS App Online Web Tool
Specific Considerations Should be understood by the Village Health Workers Internet Access availability The framework of the backend should be comprehensive for health practitioners such that the data is valuable
Android OS Mobile OS developed by Google Open Source Anyone can see the code and use a development kit to create Android applications for FREE
What is Required? Java on your computer Eclipse IDE Android SDK
Basic info on Apps Activity Java File User Interface Screen Layout XML File Dimensions of Page Additions Pictures Music Files
XML File for Layouts
XML File for Layouts Contn.
Structure of Folders
What is available in Android?
An App Cycle
Book Knowledge is not Enough! Knowing Java is not enough Many of the questions encountered in App development are not in books or tutorials Online Discussions sites like Stackoverflow.com
Application First Slide
Application Second Side
Application Third Slide
Application Fourth Slide
Data Storage? Things that need to be considered Online accessibility User-Friendly interface for backend Android Connectivity Cost Effective Security
Google Spreadsheets Settled on Google Spreadsheets Easy to use interface Low knowledge curve Simple to connect to Android devices
Problems to Overcome Not constant 3G availability in rural areas Will not directly sync data with Google Spreadsheets
New Framework! Data is collected Transmitted to a local Excel File Syncs online when 3G is online Retransmits the data back to device
Micro-Insurance Insurance Premiums for up to 4 members total One Primary Holder and 3 subsidiaries max. With the payment of around 600 Free visits to clinics for up to 6 times per year Heavily subsidized costs at Partner hospitals Came to talks with two Insurance companies
Format Android app To take bio data information about each group and assign unique identifiers Picture must also be taken of all members These would be uploaded to database for Insurance company to create insurance cards and then deploy them to village

Google Spreadsheets Google Drive Spreadsheet on Android JExcel Gdocs Api Gdata Api
