WebFirst’s Mobile Data Collection Solution
With WebFirst’s PhiCollect system, we have created an open source data collection platform that is flexible, scalable, cloud-based, and affordable. PhiCollect allows you to collect data from and publish to a variety of platforms (Web, Android, Apple iOS, SMS). We have leveraged two existing, well-established platforms in the design of our system - Open Data Kit integrated with the Drupal 7 (open source) framework. Drupal 7 can be used as a model through which mobile health researchers can analyze data more effectively and communicate with each other in a more effective and efficient way, furthering mutual goals in a variety of fields including: public health, emergency response, food security and facilities management. By using platforms that have readily available modules, important functions can be easily added at relatively low cost.
