Peace Corps Volunteer Application Help

I am a Peace Corps Volunteer in The Gambia. I am currently in Theis,
Senegal for a couple weeks. I am the process of creating an application to
manage my reproductive child health clinic (baby weighing, immunization, &
antenatal clinic) & am struggling to figure out all the logic. The app
should be able to pop up PIH (name of child, DOB, parent’s names, compound
name, picture of child) to have the nurse confirm if this is the correct
child. I want the app to be able to calculate when a child needs its next
immunization based off the child’s past immunization history. I would like
the app to be able to pop up a chart to show the weight of a baby and alert
health workers if the weight is below a certain threshold. I would also
like the application to be able to monitor pregnant women and how many
times they have had an immunization and if they have been taking their IPTp
& when they are next due.
The logic is a bit more complicated then I can figure out. I have already
completed the online Peace Corps Commcare Course and reviewed the Wiki
page. Any help would be appreciated. The application I’m working on is
called Diabugu RCH.

Hello, thanks for your message! Maybe I can offer a bit of guidance - I
know the wiki can be daunting and tough to search. I’ve put some
suggestions of specific features/pages that should do what you need,
written inline below.

I am a Peace Corps Volunteer in The Gambia. I am currently in Theis,
Senegal for a couple weeks.

I’m an RPCV Senegal! 2011-13. Hope you’re a Pulaar speaker - only language
worth learning. If you need more help, I think some Senegal PCVs are still
involved with CommCare-based projects…maybe ask around the training
center and see if anyone’s available. Will admit I don’t know the status of
that.

I am the process of creating an application to manage my reproductive
child health clinic (baby weighing, immunization, & antenatal clinic) & am
struggling to figure out all the logic. The app should be able to pop up
PIH (name of child, DOB, parent’s names, compound name, picture of child)
to have the nurse confirm if this is the correct child.

You can configure cases lists and details to show this info to your nurses:

Case+Detail+Configuration
https://confluence.dimagi.com/display/commcarepublic/Case+List+and+Case+Detail+Configuration

I want the app to be able to calculate when a child needs its next
immunization based off the child’s past immunization history.

You’ll need to use hidden values and date calculations to do this:
https://confluence.dimagi.com/display/commcarepublic/Hidden+Values+
Tutorial+Part+2%3A+Calculations+Using+a+Date This page describes the
process for estimating a woman’s due date for childbirth, but you should be
able to configure for a vaccine schedule.

I would like the app to be able to pop up a chart to show the weight of a
baby and alert health workers if the weight is below a certain threshold.

Charts are a bit challenging, but a simple way to do the alerting is to
configure labels to appear if a child’s weight drops below a threshold -
add a text label with the message you’d like the health worker to see, and
assuming you’ve got a question where you collect the weight of the baby,
configure the display condition to show the label if the weight of the baby
< your threshold. See here https://confluence.dimagi.com/display/
commcarepublic/Display+Conditions+Overview
https://confluence.dimagi.com/display/commcarepublic/Display+Conditions+Overview

I would also like the application to be able to monitor pregnant women and
how many times they have had an immunization and if they have been taking
their IPTp & when they are next due.

You can probably accomplish the immunization bit with a counter: a bit
tricky to wrap your head around but try this page: https://confluence.
dimagi.com/display/commcarepublic/Incrementing+a+counter. You may be able
to use the same strategy for IPTp doses, then go back to your date
calculations to write some logic for next due dates – for instance, if you
have a date question where the user enters an IPTp dose, it might be
something like date(date_iptp_due = date_ipt_dose_1 + 30) . Then you can
put a text label with the output of this calculation to tell your user when
the next dose is due.

The logic is a bit more complicated then I can figure out. I have already
completed the online Peace Corps Commcare Course and reviewed the Wiki
page. Any help would be appreciated. The application I’m working on is
called Diabugu RCH.
