Male Medical Circumcisions is another field where we could address problems associated with data capture, storage and analysis. The QodeLynx-MMC system is currently under development, but will include an Android app and a web dashboard. The system will incorporate several functions that will address the data challenges which include:
To meet these challenges, a system consisting of a mobile application and a web dashboard will be introduced. The mobile app will function in either an online or offline mode, enabling the system to be utilized within deep rural areas. The mobile app will also capture demographic and other data, as well as provide the user with the ability to pass the patient record on from the mobile device to the next phase of the intake process, namely admissions and so on.
This functionality transfers the patient data on to the nurse and doctor. Once the procedure has been completed, the post-operative care process will be administered via the app which then creates a list of follow up dates for the patient. The entire process of hand-offs will be achieved without the need for Wi-Fi or any other connectivity at the site. All data is going to be transferred by means of QR codes, which allows the system to operate with minimal infrastructure.
The mobile app will include functionality for capturing digital signatures, photographs, GPS coordinates and other fields of information including text and multiple-choice formats. Many of the repetitive processes will be automated and suggestions or guidance can also be displayed for personnel such as BMI calculations etc. The data captured by QodeLynx-MMC will be viewed, analysed and reported on via a web-based portal that enables the user to improve service delivery, ensure completeness of patient records and enhanced monitoring and evaluation processes. QodeLynx-MMC could easily be integrated with the Lynx application previously mentioned resulting in the cross-correlation of data and provide greater insight.
