Here’s a graph of the numbers of patient visit records the HEWs have been submitting over the last year or so (click to view a larger version):
The numbers of visit records submitted have been grouped by week, we’re not yet sure why there seem to be so many peaks & troughs in the numbers submitted each week, although the increase in the last couple of months will be attributable to us now having more HEWs and midwives working with us – in total we now have around 30 HEWs and midwives, it varies quite often as staff go away for further study, move on to other jobs, or go on maternity leave.
For those interested in the protocols forms we’re using for the maternal care project you can now access these on GitHub, see: https://github.com/DigitalCampus/Digital-Campus-Protocols. These are the forms that the Health Extension Workers are using (with ODK) to manage their maternal care visits. Please feel free to reuse these forms for your project, they’re released under a creative commons license. Over the coming days we’ll post up some more information about how to use these forms and some of the other developments we’ve been working on.
I’ve also posted up the code for our Ethiopian Pregnancy Calculator Android app (code and info) and the Amharic/Ge’ez keyboard (code and info)
