Members of the VecnaCares team will unveil a new field-ready server at the DHIS2 Symposium on March 22-23 in Washington, DC. The robust, all-in-one server, cell modem, and power management system is built for improved data collection, aggregation, and reporting in low-resource environments.
VecnaCares' Executive Director, Paul Amendola, will present on Friday, March 23rd at 2:15pm on the topic of Hardware in the Open Source Digital Landscape. This session will give an overview of how hardware is adapting to and changing the evolving open source digital health landscape. Paul will present case studies of the CliniPAK field server, including Kakuma Refugee camp, a health facility deployment in Malawi, and a disaster relief scenario. Multiple users can log on to the same instance of DHIS 2 and update data in real-time. By deploying DHIS 2 on the CliniPAK together, there is a possibility for a completely offline deployment that would enable data capture in the field as well as allow better service delivery, increase access, and improve outcomes.
During this session, Paul will unveil the new hardware design and capabilities.
The 4th DHIS 2 Symposium, organized by BAO Systems and the University of Oslo (UiO), is where representatives of NGOs and governments worldwide connect and collaborate on strengthening national IT systems. The themes of this year's conference include biometrics, Android mobile applications, Sustainable Development Goals, and how integration with other systems like LMIS and EMRs is improving national systems.
