Experimental Research on Digital Tools for Community Health Workers with Mobile Technology in Rural Guatemala
“CommCare has streamlined our ability to collect, review, and analyze data across various projects, including child nutrition surveillance and type 2 diabetes management. The intuitive user interface makes it simple to train our team of community health workers, and the ability to incorporate decision-support protocols and branching logic within CommCare has allowed them to provide services with remote physician supervision typically reserved for more highly trained personnel.”

Longitudinal Cohort Study On Ear Biometrics For Patient ID & Tracking in Zambia
“We created forms in CommCare that helped us track infants longitudinally, capturing ear data every month. Based on the way we were able to set up registration, we could send out automatic reminders to patients when they were due at the clinic for their next follow-up, as well as auto-populate the correct form based on the infant’s date of birth captured on registration. Since this study was aimed at determining ear growth over the course of the first 9 months of life, we used specific follow-up forms to group our data for analysis”

Implementation Research on TB Contact Investigation in Uganda
“CommCare has helped ease our data collection and improve our communication with frontline health workers. CommCare is easy for our community health workers to use and works well for implementation science research by providing a real-world data tool. CommCare has helped us to provide better feedback on health worker performance and improve our data quality.”

A Large-Scale HIV Behavioral Intervention Trial for Youth at Risk of HIV in the USA
“We recently used CommCare for electronic data collection and monitoring in a large multi-site longitudinal study to evaluate the impact of HIV interventions in two US cities. Studies of this magnitude and complexity are always accompanied by challenges. Thanks to thoughtful input from the Dimagi team on the front end and the robustness and flexibility of the CommCare system, the development of data collection protocols to meet our needs and data collection were not part of those challenges.”
