Last year a project was developed by master students implementing a chatting application for DHIS 2. This included an XMPP back-end running on the server, in addition to an Android-based client application.

There was also implemented a chat client in the browser version of DHIS 2, which connected to the same XMPP server.

The work is only a proof of concept so far, and will need to be improved in order to make it become a core part of DHIS 2.

The Tracker Capture app enables enrollment of patients in health programmes and registration of patient data for the various stages in the programme. Try the Tracker Cpature app in the DHIS2 Demo to see how its MNCH/PNC (Adult Woman) programme works.

The same measurements, e.g. weight and blood pressure, are registrered in each stage of the programme, and health workers have told that they want to view the measurements from the previous stage when registering the current values. Tracker Capture cannot do this now, such that this may be a way of improving its usability.

The assignment is thus to modify the current Tracker Capture app to enable view of previous data when entering new. See the illustration below for an example. 

If your knowledge about usability makes you believe that another change to the app could also improve its usability, you are welcome to do this change instead.

This assignment can be extended to a master thesis for a research project on tracking pregnant women.

This project is asking for creative solutions around how different groups of related datasets can be analyzed along both spatial/hierarchical dimensions and according to time periods. We are here talking about “aggregate data”, i.e. numerical statistics such as various measures for maternal and child health. Different variables vary according to spatial and temporal dimensions, e.g. number of deliveries versus number stillbirths or number of antenatal visits every month by district.

DHIS 2 features a module called Tracker, which can be used to track patients who participate in health related programs. Such programs may be Malaria treatment and follow up, or Pregnancy follow ups (ANC) to name a few. In some cases coordinates need to be captured, and in this task you will implement a map based coordinate picker on Android.
