Calling in a 15 minute timer application

Hi all,

I am building a malaria/CCM app to test and I had a question about calling
in another application. I would like to be able to call in an outside
application that will be a 15 minute timer so that CHWs who are performing
rapid diagnostic tests can set the timer and know when the test is ready to
be read.

I haven’t found any 15-minute timer applications already built in the
Android store but I guess I have two questions:

  1. How would I call in a regular timer application to my app? Im a little
    confused from the directions in the tutorial about how I am supposed to
    format the code.

  2. Is there a way when I call in the application to automatically set the
    timer at 15 minutes or would the CHWs have to do that? Or alternatively, is
    it possible to build a 15 minute-timer application specifically for android
    and call that in?

Thanks!

Sarah,

We’ve actually built an application that does something similar for another
project. However, this application is still in a “beta” stage meaning we’ve
not released it generally yet. I’ll email you directly so we can discuss
whether this will work for you.

Best,
Will

Hi Will,

Could you please include me on this too? I am very interested in using the
app call out feature for a timer and other apps.

Kind regards,
Ameera

Hello Sarah, Will and Ameera,

I am also trying to integrate a timer into CommCare. Were any of you able to do this? If so, can you please share details?

Thank you,
Alejandro

Hi Alejandro,

Can I ask whether you want to add a timer for RDT workflows?

If so, CommCare supports interop with a digital RDT Toolkit which supports both timers and a few other features, including job aids, cassette image capture and cropping and automated quality assessment for a few tests.

The team recently rolled out a template application demonstrating these workflows for COVID-19 RDT's, but the tools are test-agnostic.

If you take a look and this seems like what you are looking for (but maybe for different RDT's) I'd be happy to point you in the right direction for adapting to your use case.
