EpiSurveyor helps collect public health data in the field

AUTHOR:Dr Harry Strulovici, MD, MPH

Under the direction of Dr. Joel Selanikio, the team at DataDyne.org has crafted a very unique tech tool aimed at transforming the global health and international development initiative. The product is EpiSurveyor and Life for Mothers is thrilled with it's promise for helping in our efforts to reduce maternal and child mortality. The EpiSurveyor will enable us to collect this valuable health information on our mobile devices. Once the data is collected, it can be instantly uploaded to our database at the Health Center IV facility for subsequent analysis. As our community health workers collect health records in the district of Mityana, Uganda, Dr. Selanikio's EpiSurveyor will be a valuable resource as we serve this population.

This video gives a glimpse into the amazing work Dr. Selanikio is doing in Kenya:
