The goal of this project was to develop a national data warehouse that would integrate sources of national health data from disparate electronic health systems in Botswana. We worked with the Ministry of Health programs to implement a structure to extract, model and load this data into a national data warehouse that we developed. We built a business intelligence layer on top of the data warehouse where health officials could visualize and report on national health data from multiple programs on a timely basis.
Health care workers in Northern Botswana were struggling to report and track cases of Malaria in their districts in a timely manner. Working with the Botswana national malaria program, we developed a mobile application to collect malaria case data and upload it to a centralized server. Health care workers were able login and view a geo-located surveillance map to identify hotspots and outbreaks of malaria within the health districts.
For over 10 years, the National TB program (BNTP) had been using a standalone Electronic Medical Record system (EMR) for their national tuberculosis (TB) surveillance. We worked with BNTP to setup OpenMRS as a national EMR system for the program. We migrated the national TB data and customized the system for health care worker needs.
We worked with a pharmacy program to digitize paper based pharmaceutical stock records. We developed an automated optical character recognition (OCR) system that processed bulk paper based records and uploaded them to a centralized database for analysis.
We worked with a national program who were primarily recording patient HIV test records in paper based format. We worked with the program to set up a bulk scanning and optical character recognition (OCR) system to digitize these records. With a team on the ground, we visited over 50 clinics, scanned and digitized these records and uploaded them to a secure national HIV database for monitoring and analysis.
The nutrition program consistently runs an annual survey to conduct a study and analysis on nutrition and related outcomes nationally. We worked with the nutrition program to build and customize a mobile data collection application for surveyors and a web based interface to aggregate and visualize data submitted from the survey application.
