Community Bonding Period May 18 to 1 June

Hello Everyone,

I am very happy to start my Google Summer of Code journey with LibreHealth, I will be working on Mobile App Development Project, I am very much Thankful to LibreHealth & Google for selecting me again. I have also successfully completed GSoC previous year & have worked on Cost of Care project of LibreHealth.

About Project

To develop an Android & IOS application to provide clinical decision-support for nurses and doctors delivering essential newborn care interventions during the first day of life. This application provides knowledge, skills, and competencies to nurses and doctors in low/middle-income settings so that they can provide life-saving care to newborns from birth through 24 hours postnatal. App uses DHIS2 as backend & can be setup for any hospital/organization

The Goals of this project are

  • Ability to track multiple babies at a time;
  • Time-stamping births to generate an essential newborn care clock for each baby being tracked in the app;
  • Automated classification of babies health status, based on results from observations and assessments that are conducted during the first 2 hours after birth;
  • Automated advice on management of babies, based on their classification; Reminders/alerts to provide recommended essential newborn care interventions;
  • If particular interventions are not delivered on time, or at all, capture of information regarding why this essential newborn care was late, or missed
