In the countries with a lot of disasters there must be some kind of Disaster Management System. In most third world countries unfortunately that is just not the case. When it is, it is for after the disaster happens only, which is too late. It would be much better if the system works for both before and after disasters.
The module that this group will be working on is called Disaster Medical Records. It is useful for managing patient data during rescue/first aid operation. It is vital especially for countries which have lots of natural disasters but lack any patient data collection system to be able to help them as quickly and efficiently as possible. It could be used for virtually any country; of course they could customize it to their own specifications. This module will include some very important features such as tag, photograph, triage status, relevant diagnoses, and statistics. It will be able to communicate this information with the hospitals, for more serious patients who need to be transferred to hospital. The data will be placed on secure servers with 24*7 back-up. The information will be permanent until the person dies.
Entrypoint A - Triage Zone:
- Tag Label Assignment / Label Handling (Barcode, QR?, RFID?)
- Classification (Age Group, Sex)
- Triage Status
Entrypoint B - First Aid / Treatment Zone:
- Patient Tracking
- Personal Data / Contact Data
- Vital Values
- Relevant Diagnoses / Classification
- Emergency Interventions
- Emergency Lab Data (if applicable)
Reporting Point - Regular Hospital Admission:
- Patient Tracking
- Patient Registration
- Data Transfer to other Medical Record Systems
This is a simple diagram of the final module.
To ensure quality control we made three set of survey question. One for each stage. Beginning, middle, and end. We used question pro and Kwiksurveys because their free version had limitations, so by utilizing both we were able to make a kind of surveys we wanted.
This survey is like the one above except this time made by Kwiksurveys.
This survey was also asked in the beginning but from some of the people that this module is being created for.
This survey was asked in the middle of project.
And this is the last survey created right after the module was finished.
While you can make the Gantt chart by even pen and paper, however it is much better to use some kind of project management software. There are quite a few out there, but we are already familiar with Linux and Libre suit. So we used ProjectLibre.
