OpenHDS is an open source Android tablet application that enables community field workers to collect births, deaths, migrations, pregnancies, deliveries, immunization and other pertinent health information. Field workers can collect data “offline” and upload data to the OpenHDS server when they have mobile connectivity. Health program administrators and policy makers can thus have real time access to health and demographic information in the community. The web-enabled, tablet-based OpenHDS application allows users to efficiently select previously registered individuals and launch various OpenDataKit (ODK) forms to collect additional demographic, morbidity, and service delivery information. The mobile application facilitates the collection, through household interviews, of many health events that occur in the community (or outside the formal health system). Even with a relatively small target population, accurate and statistically significant health and demographic rates can be computed when health events are combined with ongoing population demographic information. In addition to computing demographic data, health administrators and researchers are able to assess health system utilization and the burden of disease for a given population over time.
The OpenHDS also maintains a consistent record of significant demographic events that occur to a population in a fixed geographic region and generates up to date registration books. This course focuses on installation, use and management of openHDS. The concepts presented are reinforced with practical exercises at the end of each section. We also provide additional exercises and materials at the end of each module and access to our experts for any further questions.
