How Nyaka created an Electronic Medical Records system to improve community health care in Uganda

While monitoring the health of communities in the hardest to reach areas of Uganda, Paul Nzerebende, MEAL Manager at Nyaka, knew there was a better way to store medical records. Before adopting SurveyCTO in 2021, they were filing patient data on paper, which made it hard to track, analyze, and access—which also limited the medical guidance Nyaka’s fieldworkers could provide to their patients.

As a long-time user of SurveyCTO, Paul knew that the platform had all the necessary functionalities to create a highly efficient digital system so Nyaka’s community clinics could collect, analyze and visualize data. Leaning on his programming skills, he was able to integrate SurveyCTO with Google Data Studio (GDS) to build interactive dashboards, which allowed him and his team to easily visualize patient data on the spot. In this webinar we hear how he analyzed and visualized data in real time, allowing him and his team to monitor community health — while also ensuring data confidentiality.

Nyaka provides community-based programs to address the needs of orphaned and vulnerable children in rural southwestern Uganda. Their aim is to ensure that each child has access to clean water, nutritious food, medical care, and information to keep them safe and healthy.
