DashTricks: Tablet for District Manager – Tanzania
Hadiza Ismaila, Michael Kutz, Bryan Martin, Jian Zhao
DashTricks is an Android tablet application that provides district immunization managers in Tanzania with a dashboard for monitoring the performance of key immunization indicators in health facilities in their districts. Our project aims to give district managers a sense of ownership over their data to help them realize problems and make better vaccine management decisions intuitively and correctly.

Here is a brief description of our project:
IcePAK is a mobile application focussed on vaccine cold chain
management in Pakistan. It’s goal is to integrate large amounts of
data into easily consumable forms, enabling decision makers and
managers to allocate resources effectively. High visibility of problem
areas, and automated allocation recommendations, allows these at risk
locations to recognised early and dealt with efficiently.
Training App for Laos

SMS Immunization Manager
Jennifer Kang, Isaac Reynolds, Jackson Roberts, Nicholas Shahan
The SMS Immunization Manager (SIM) is an easy-to-install and easy-to-customize system that allows community health workers to report information about the vaccine cold chain (such as fridge temperature and condition) by SMS rather than paper forms. SIM’s main features include robust SMS-based operations that correctly handle even poorly-formatted messages and a moderation web application for administrators to review the system’s operation. The system will be deployed in Laos in the coming months and possibly to other countries after.
