New York City using ODK for Health Operations

In April 2011, the New York City’s Department of Health and Mental
Hygiene (NYC DOHMH, http://www.nyc.gov/health) partnered with InSTEDD
(http://instedd.org, @InSTEDD) to begin work on a project called ECHO:
Electronic Communication for Health Operations. ECHO’s goal was to
help NYC DOHMH improve the ability of their Community Outreach Teams
(COT) to gather emergency preparedness and response-related data in
the field.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GvtqJEsbD6w has a great video
describing the project.

InSTEDD writes, “These Community Outreach Teams teams deploy into
local communities in order to share information as well as capture
location-based data from those communities. The goal of the ECHO
project was to support the COT teams by allowing them to create and
fill out electronic surveys on a handheld devices and then transmit
that information back to the Emergency Operations Center for analysis
– in near real-time.

Now, in situations that require an investigation (such as a potential
disease outbreak) these teams will be able to create survey based
forms and push them out to a team of people who each has their own
Motorola Xoom tablet [running ODK Collect]. The team will then collect
answers to the survey by interviewing affected communities, and push
them back to the server where they will later be able to export it to
a Geographical Information System (GIS) tool.”

As part of that work, InSTEDD re-designed the ODK Collect interface to
better use the large screen sizes now available on Android tablets. We
would love to integrate the beautiful changes shown below at


into ODK. If you are interested in helping, just let us know!

This new design looks gorgeous. Absolutely let us know how we can help
and we'll be all over it.

I agree, the new design looks amazing--well done! I am working with a
team on a project in Zambia through CARE International and Georgia
Tech and we had been throwing around the idea of customizing the ODK
interface for Android tablets. We are very interested in what changes
you've made and would definitely be interested in helping to integrate
things back in to ODK. Is the source available somewhere so that we
could see what you've done?

Thanks for your help,
Nate

Agree this looks gorgeous and lends itself very well to the tablet. If we
could fit a patient list -> form list -> actual form in three columns across
that could be extremely interesting.
