“Are your children vaccinated?”
Asking this question might seem easy in developed countries like Canada, the U.S. and others, but in some countries in Africa, determining who has been vaccinated can be a staggering problem. iFormBuilder works with NGO and Healthcare officials with our Mobile Data Collection apps to gather the exact data Dr. Joel Selanikio of the Center for Disease Control is saying will help save lives across the globe. In his recent TED Talk, Dr. Selanikio offers up the problem that millions of clinics that need to track drugs, vaccinations must be registered, and bottlenecks hit almost every aspect of making sure children are healthy.
From the TED Talks site:
Collecting global health data was an imperfect science: Workers tramped through villages to knock on doors and ask questions, wrote the answers on paper forms, then input the data — and from this gappy information, countries would make huge decisions. talks through the sea change in collecting health data in the past decade — starting with the Palm Pilot and Hotmail, and now moving into the cloud. (Filmed at TEDxAustin.)
Dr. Selanikio states that cloud storage and computing will help revolutionize sharing of information and software.
