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 (Android App) integrated with the Drupal (open source) framework. We can also configure ODK to work with your database!

With PhiCollect, 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.

Why utilize Drupal?

By using the Drupal framework, we can leverage all of the forms, permissions and contrib modules, helping to improve data management and analysis by utilizing the latest techniques and methods. For example, leveraging 3rd party machine Learning engines and data visualization packages (e.g. Tableau) is a snap!
