2019 Solution Challenge Winner
2019 Solution Challenge Winner
Immunization Calculator from Muni University in Uganda is a mobile app that helps local health workers in the immunization sector improve the efficiency in their operation. Samuel and his team met the local health workers in Uganda and learned that it takes a lot of effort and time for them to calculate an optimal vaccine injection schedule for each patient because there are a variety of vaccines and each of them has different policies.
After a number of consultations with the health workers, Samuel and his team developed Immunization Calculator and provided them an automated solution not only to plan a vaccine injection schedule easily, but also to track record and calculate the dropout rate, which helps the health workers analyze the data for the future improvement.
The team used native script, Android platform, and the cloud-based database Firebase to build the Immunization Calculator. The cloud-messaging service Firebase Cloud Messaging has been used to notify the due dates of vaccines to health workers.
Immunization Calculator team members:
Samuel Mugisha, Joshwa Benkya, and Samuel Itwaru
