VillageReach and the University of Washington Computer Science & Engineering Department developed ODK Scan, an Android-based mobile phone application that uses computer vision to digitize and process data from paper forms. The application was designed to transform traditional paper-based collection by significantly lowering time and cost for data capture and increase reliability of data from the last mile to enable critical decision making by stakeholders at all levels in healthcare delivery. VillageReach conducted field trials of ODK Scan in Mozambique, Malawi and Pakistan. VillageReach provided critical analysis of ODK Scan based on field trial data and recommendations for future application of the technology. Contributing partners include the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the USAID|DELIVER Project, and Mercy Corps.
