De la collecte à la visualisation de données: le cas pratique de CommCare

Découvrez les principaux atouts d’un outil de collecte de données tel que CommCare

Il y a un mois, Bluesquare et IT4life ont lancé la série de webinaires “Digitaliser vos programmes : outils et conseils” qui vise à apporter un support aux gestionnaires de projets et de Suivi et Évaluation pour à la fois identifier les meilleures solutions digitales pour leurs projets et programmes, et à aborder la meilleure approche en matière d’implémentation. La première session, début juin, portait sur la “Monitorer programme avec DHIS2“. Si vous souhaitez avoir accès à l’enregistrement vidéo, n’hésitez pas à nous contacter. 

Nous avons maintenant le plaisir d’annoncer la deuxième session de la série “De la collecte des données à la visualisation : Le cas pratique de CommCare“. Cette session sera disponible en français et en anglais.

Lorsque l’on s’efforce de collecter des données sur un programme, la suite logique consiste à suivre plusieurs paramètres dans le temps, qu’il s’agisse de personnes, d’équipements, de stocks de médicaments, etc. C’est ce qu’on appelle la collecte de données longitudinales. Dans ce webinaire, nous ferons la démonstration de l’une des plateformes de collecte de données mobiles les plus riches en fonctionnalités : CommCare.

Grâce à ses puissantes fonctions de création de formulaires et de gestion de cas, CommCare vous permet de suivre tous les paramètres nécessaires au suivi de votre programme. Pour vous aider à pousser encore plus loin l’analyse de vos données, nous vous montrerons également comment utiliser des outils de Business Intelligence tels que Tableau et PowerBI pour visualiser vos données.

Enfin, parce que chaque programme a ses propres spécificités et exigences, nous discuterons d’autres cas pratiques potentiels, et les outils les mieux adaptés à chacun d’eux.

À la fin de ce webinaire, vous serez en mesure de savoir si CommCare est l’outil le plus avantageux pour votre organisation et votre programme.

From data collection to visualization: The CommCare use case

Discover some of the great things you can do with a data collection tool such as CommCare

A month ago Bluesquare and IT4life kicked off their webinar series “Digitizing your programs : tools and tips”. The series aims to help project and M&E managers identify the best digital solutions for their operations, and make the right implementation decisions. The first session looked at  “ Monitoring your program with DHIS2. If you want to have access to the video recording, do not hesitate to reach out.

We are now pleased to announce the second session of the series “From data collection to visualization: The CommCare use case”. This session will be available in both French and English.

When making the effort to collect data on a program, the logical next step is to to track several parameters over time, be it people, equipment, medicine stocks, etc. This is called collecting longitudinal data. In this second webinar we will be demonstrating one of the most feature-rich mobile data collection platforms: CommCare.

Thanks to its powerful form builder and case management features, CommCare allows you to track anything and everything. To help you push your data analysis even further, our expert will also demonstrate how to use common Business Intelligence tools such as Tableau and PowerBI to visualize your data

Finally, because every program has its own specificities and requirements, we will discuss other potential use cases, and which tools may be better fitted to each of them.

At the end of this webinar you will be able to know whether CommCare is worth considering for your organization and program.

Join us on our social media platforms and engage in the conversation.

Another year for Bluesquare – The same vision, different ways.

Another year for Bluesquare – The same vision, different ways
At Bluesquare, what drives us is the desire to make the world a better place. Our goal is to ensure that every citizen on this planet has access to a minimum package of health services. Unfortunately, we are not there yet. The community surrounding the Tipo health center in the DRC has benefited from barely any substantial Global Health investment over the last years. So, helping Global Health players allocate their resources in a smarter way, so that it goes where it matters most, is where we can continue to make a difference. How will we get there? We believe that technology and data can influence this allocation in two ways : increase efficiency of existing investments through better data insights and financial disintermediation, and make Global Health a more attractive investment for countries and citizens looking to invest in this space.    

But how do we translate this vision into operational priorities? Here is our focus for 2018.

Data Collect in the DRC: Patient feedback & monitoring socio-economic status

Health RBF programs typically evaluate patient satisfaction quarterly to verify the information declared by health centers about the services offered. Every quarter, a sampling of patients who visit the health facility are interviewed usually by Community-Based Organizations (CBO). Once data has been collected, a “community satisfaction score” is calculated for each provider, which impacts the payment/bonus allocated to that provider. In most countries, this process is paper-based.

Data Collect in Benin: near real-time service availability and readiness data

In early 2016, Benin’s Ministry of Health scaled up its Results-Based Financing (RBF) system. This move has ensured that all health care providers (all public, most faith-based, some private) are surveyed quarterly to externally assess service availability and quality of care. To aid Benin’s government, Bluesquare has been providing strategic support to their RBF data system.

Going mobile: taking data collection to the next level

Each year we see the use of mobile devices become more widespread, including in developing countries, where mobile technology was previously less accessible. Furthermore, with growing use has come an increased understanding of technology. This has clearly helped projects that use mobile data collection. While this underlines the potential power of mobile data collection, what key values does it bring?

How can social accountability become a stronger component of RBF systems?

Most of the time, projects are developed without taking the community’s voices and their everyday realities into account. Moreover, many surveys are addressed to communities without seeking their feedback or adjusting programs to meet the local needs. Putting communities in the driver’s seat implies an understanding of their needs and giving them opportunities to express themselves. To fill this gap, more and more donors, NGO’s, and governments are becoming willing to integrate social accountability as an essential component of future public systems.
