Hello everyone. Seth Marcus from World Vision
@CommCarr; In regards to key functioanlity, what’s the research reference?
Hello!Angelique Nyirafaranga from Intrahealth Rwanda/ Community Health Specialist
@DSQR team: Can we collect stories like this one of CommCare being adapted and used within 72 hours to support contact tracing in Nigeria?
Demo link: https://tinyurl.com/ffx-demo
Hi everyone, Kat James from Michigan Medicine
Excellent idea Adele!
Hi @Adele, yes, I'll send an email to you and Clayton after this call to coordinate.
Thanks, was thinking it would be useful to do this across global goods
@CommCare, what are your data coding/data modeling approaches? Are you using coded information from CIEL/SNOMED/LOINC, etc.?
heidi good boncana
Heidi Good Boncana from JHU
We did publish an article on SORMAS's work: https://digitalsquare.org/blog/2020/3/4/global-goods-addressing-outbreaks-sormas-and-covid-19. Let's talk offline about the approach. Thanks Adele.
Hello Everyone. Alphonse from UNICEF Rwanda
We will share all of these links in the follow up to this webinar.
FFX Contact Demo: https://tinyurl.com/ffx-demo
@Clayton - see question for you in the chat. @CommCare, what are your data coding/data modeling approaches? Are you using coded information from CIEL/SNOMED/LOINC, etc.?
Hi Amanda.Our data model is readily available to integrate using the WHO's data coding, as the model is build directly against the FFX protocol
That being said we can code outgoing information in whatever format is relevant to downstream systems
The WHO Data set does not include actual codes, for it to be interoperable with other systems (like OpenMRS) it would be great to have coded information in the database with standard codes
Hey Andy - True, we can definitely make sure that existing mapping is available. as an asset.
Thanks for the quick response!
@Andy and @Clayton we can work on that in the OpenHIE task force
LOINC and ICD have been developing concepts, so we can work on mapping to those
@Garrett, we have already done all the mapping
@Garret - Definitely. The critical thing I want to highlight is that organizations can get started collecting data and performing Contact Tracing today without concern that the data model will be incompatible with the downstream needs
It's quite straightforward for us to feed the eventual data into both Case Reporting systems and into other HIS databases
@Clayton - yes understood
@MedicMobile: Can you talk more about what needs you and your partners see around PHC workflow modification? What are examples of some changes you anticipate, in the coming year, for CHW's supporting PHC?
All slides and the recording will be shared on our wiki and in an email following this webinar.
hello, please do kindly record this so that we can share later
@Clayton/Dimagi and @Amanda/CHT: it would be useful to see a specific list of countries where CommCare and MedicMobile already have a footprint. You've both emphasized the need to build on existing systems and it'd help to know where those are. Similarly it would be nice to see in which of those countries there is an active conversation with MoH about deploying COVID-19 apps
@Skye, yes absolutely. We anticipate (and are already seeing) shifts from in-person to call/messaging based visits for some PHC services, as well as no touch policies being implemented by some of our partner organizations. There will be a need for CHW training on new workflows for PHC, as well as the ability to monitor the impact of these new workflows on the delivery of PHC.
We are recording the presentation and sharing the slides afterwards. Thanks Minu!
For all presenters, we may not have time for the facilitated discussion at the end, so please respond back to questions here, if possible.
@Tim Wood. I would think the Digital Health Atlas would have solutions per country, right @Garrett
Can you drop the link for the You Tube demo in the chat Michael?
@Clayton @Amanda Could you please register COVID-19 delployments in Digitalhealthatlas.org as we will be highlighting those at WHO
@Wayan - one would hope. But I'm also interested to hear where orgs are having active conversations about COVID-19 with MoH (and where perhaps conversations need to be catalyzed)
The link to the CHT RDT demo is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G3iqlMmt3eU
For those interested in coding of the data elements I would recommend folks look to the CIEL dictionary (with all standard code maps) which is available on openconceptlab.org. I link to the current subset of COVID-19-related terms are at: https://openconceptlab.org/orgs/CIEL/collections/COVID-19-Starter-Set/concepts/ Updates will be happening regularly. If you have concepts which are missing and need to be shared with others, email them to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please, RNP is a National Research and Education Network in Brazil, and in this moment we are helping the Health Community, specialy the terCeary Hospitals no Manage the COVID-19 as a HUB for apps who can scalable and applyed in Brazil (Portugueses language). Please, send more info if you can help. email@example.com
@Garrett, here's a link to the Community Health Toolkit demo: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G3iqlMmt3eU
The link to the CHT PoE Screening demo is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6cttBMlNqxU&=&feature=youtu.be
@Tim - Amanda looks to be doing that for GG, but I wonder how many orgs are willing to share such intel publicly
@Tim @Wayan yes those deployments should be in the digitalhealthatlas.org but I am not seeing those yet represented
@Garret - I'll ask the team to go update, things are moving quite quickly, so some of them are only from the last couple days
@Clayton - thanks
Although we aren't directly involved in all CommCare platform solutions, so we will only have access to the ones we are specifically supporting
We can maybe eblast folks to ask them to register their own as well
@Tim - I just started collecting information for DSQ approved global goods to note where tools are deployed for Covid and which countries are adapting tools (not deployed yet). Once I have a bit more in my crowdsourced document (that I started last night), I will share. We want to get this on the DSQ wiki for transparency as well.
Do all these systems follow the same data model to be able to make comparisons across different data collected?
Are these Android applications accessible and installable in other countries depending that it is quite difficult to install other Android application based on region and ToC
@Vikas - that is one of the goals of the OpenHIE COVID 19 Task force. To provide guidance for data models, data exchange etc.
@Garrett- if there is a specific way COVID deployments should be tagged and/or characterized in DHA, I'm wondering if it's worth taking a bit of time in this call to share that guidance and/or we can include guidance in follow-up to this webinar. That way contributors know how to enter the information and consumers know how to search
thanks @Amanda! this will be a major challenge for interoperability and comparisons across data systems.
Great question Skye! @Garrett, please share information in the chat and we'll make sure this is shared in follow up to this webinar.
@Vikas, that is also why sharing the coded data dictionary was such a key step: https://openconceptlab.org/orgs/CIEL/collections/COVID-19-Starter-Set/concepts/
@Skye There is a COVID-19 health focus in the project registration questionnaire… many additional changes are coming by end of week
Hi Jean Claude. The DHIS2 Android Capture app can be accessed and installed through GooglePlay (or through other channels as needed by a country, i.e. distribution of an APK through mobile device management for mass deployment is possible). We've included instructions to access the Android demo in the slidedeck.
@skye for the Digitalhealthatlas.org
@Jean Claude - CommCare is accessible installable through Google Play as well
@Andrew, this is great!!
@Skye - under Implenmetation overview - health focus area - Infectious Diseases COVID-19 is at the top if the list in the DHA
Thanks Garrett and Steve!
@Rebecca, Shurajit - who can see the contacts in DHIS2 (contact tracing), and how are privacy / ethical use of data assured in this (with regards to names - are they anonymized for some users)?
@vikas, @all we are trying to document data models across standards and tools here https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1aB27qqWl-ragGlJT8FnqzKkcqRrrY_i2LiYcTLlXbNE/edit#gid=1423804326
REALLY excited about the DHA adaptations to increase visibility on COVID deployments. will be super valuable for the community. Echoing Amanda's thanks!
@Carl!! this is great. will be very useful for interoperability!!
Hi all, please post your questions here in the chat. @Garrett, we can skip the facilitated discussion and give you 5 minutes at the end of the presentations, to screenshare and demo/talk about DHA and the DHA adaptations. That is, if we can all stick to time :) Just let me know.
@Vikas - this will be the input to the work for the OpenHIE Covid-19 TaskForce
@all, do we have lab systems or logistics systems to manage covid data?
@Carl, looking forward to the taskforce...
@severine the access settings are configurable so it can be determined which users (or groups of users) can see contacts. It is also possible to restrict this by catchment area, for example a user can only see patients personally identifiable data for their facility or catchment area (this applies to all personally identifiable data). In addition, there is a concept of 'breaking the glass' where, depending on how user access is configured, a user may request to view a person's data outside of their usual catchment area.

Emily, who is the of GOFR? How) Could a CHW use it?
Here is a link to the site for more info https://www.facilitymatch.net/
For those global good partners who are not presenting but are adapting your software for COVID-19 response, please share your updates and a link to your resources in the chat. We'll capture this in the recap email after the webinar.
@Vikas yes, you can see OpenELIS (labs) in that sheet. Also OpenLMIS and the Product Catalog Management Tool have been thinking through how they can support their response
great, thanks @Carl!!
@Candy, a CHW probably would not use the tool to reconcile lists of facilities, as this tends to be done at a central level, as a management function. However, if a CHW is a recipient of constantly changing lists of facilities, s/he would benefit from decision makers using the tool to manage dynamic lists.
Here is a quick YouTube on mHero for more information https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-7vqrDFRXk4&feature=youtu.be
Really nice reflections Matt! We have indeed come far as a digital community.
Well said, Matt!
That’s so encouraging to hear, Matt!
Yes I second that Matt! (as someone who was in the same boat for guinea for Ebola)
Thanks ONA - Canopy has been great in Philippines!
These visuals are beautiful, Matt
thanks @Matt for highlighting some of the tools that go beyond just immediate covid response - important to anticipate the needs of recovering health systems after the curve flattens
I have to drop for another meeting, but if folks have any questions about the CIEL dictionary or the maps, please reach out to me. Thanks for some amazing presentation and more importantly, for such amazing work!
it's important that other disease surveillance activities like malaria eradication maintain their momentum and protocols are modified as necessary to protect health workers and households - we'll be discussing more about how covid is affecting malaria elimination on our next Digital Solutions for Malaria Elimination (https://dsme.community) call on Apr 9 - all are welcome
Terrific work everyone. Apologies that I have to drop
Will we provided with copies of the slide decks?
This is not a question for now. But given the almost lightening speed with which COVID 19 seems to develop in a population, how can any or all of these digital solutions become even more responsive and nimble in real time as an epidemic progresses? To what extent is this capability necessary?
Hi Constance - I couldn't agree more
Here is the slides from our presentation. https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1wzFqX4gG2AxZWuvl-H0UOQoXnPq3x2KoEuNGs3sgLqs/edit?usp=sharing
I think ensuring that focusing on what is available turnkey today is a really critical focus
One thing we've seen across all of our COVID response projects to date is that users have made changes to their applications and deployed multiple versions even in the weeks since they've started
Here is the paper that Daniel (and I) mentioned in his presentation, in case anyone is interested: https://publichealth.jmir.org/2018/4/e68/
@Sherri, yes, we will share the link to the slide deck and recording in the follow up email after the webinar.
The recording and deck will be uploaded to Digital Square's wiki here: https://wiki.digitalsquare.io/index.php/Global_Goods_Community#Global_Good_Webinars

Thanks Clayton :)
This is the link for SORMAS suppport on Github for developers who want to deploy SORMAS https://github.com/hzi-braunschweig/SORMAS-Project/issues
Any time! Given how little time is available for teams to evaluate tools for response it's really important to make sure that they have access to verified / researched validation
To add a few details that were skipped in the mHero presentation:- As it is now uses FHIR, mHero is more interoperable with different HIS platforms and this makes it possible to do cross-sector messaging and even messaging of patients- On the side of the communication platform, mHero can connect with an existing call center and automated responses for triaging incoming requests for information- On both sides, free and open source platforms can be used, and ideally are existing in country to reduce time to start using mHero- The interface has been updated to match iHRIS v5 and is much more user-friendly- Installation and deployment has been simplified- Contact and contact group syncing has been improved so contact records can be automatically managed
@Yaw, do you know what countries are using ODK for Covid now?
Stephen Meyer - VIAMO
Can you please provide links to the webinar you are referring to?
We also maintain a (probably incomplete) list of around 60 other research papers about CommCare since 2009 if they are of interest (https://www.dimagi.com/toolkits/commcare-evidence-base/)
@Stephen we will follow up in email on the AMIA webinars
