ODK Voice

Hi Sidhant,
Great to meet you and also that you'll be working on ODK. I'm cc'ing
the ODK list just so can know what's going on. We've created a module
in OpenMRS that allows you to schedule a call to ODK-Voice based on
patient's preferences, it sends information via an xml file to
ODK-Voice which then places that information into the xml that it uses
to make the call i.e. you can have the patient's name, a date of a
clinical visit and their cell phone as part of the phone survey.
We've then modified ODK-Voice so that on completing successfully a
call it imports the filled out xform to OpenMRS. The clone of what we
are working on is on the ODK-voice repository under joaquinblaya if
you're interested in looking at the code.

Sorry it took me this long to reply.
