Helping Governments, Donors and NGOs to collect data efficiently

Every single data project starts with collecting data, no matter how different the situation in the field. Whether you collect data from health centers, hospitals or remote villages far from any internet or phone connection, our solutions will help you get your data into your DHIS2 system.

Our vision is to serve all of you involved. Whether you are a data analyst eager to get quality data in a timely manner. Or a data collector – a field agent, nurse or verifier – tasked with this crucial operation. Without all of the data collection work you do, there is no data to act upon. So we aim to make your job easier too – helping you to avoid the easy to fix mistakes and guiding you along each step of the process.

To accomplish this, we rely on established technical solutions such as ODK and the DHIS2 Android application. We follow developments on both these initiatives closely and have extensive experience in making them work in the most effective way for projects of varying size and scope. In addition, we’ve built our own tool, Data Collect to bridge ODK and DHIS2 and allowing you to push data from ODK to DHIS2.

We support the full data collection range – from simple routine data to complex quality of care.
