All reported data is recorded in a central database, and is available to health officials in real-time for analysis and decision-making. Health workers in locations without Internet connectivity can access the system using any phone (satellite, fixed-line, mobile, or community pay phone).Cardionet (Mexico)Voxiva, along with ICS, has developed CardioNet, a solution in self-health care, health risk prevention, and adherence to prescribed treatments. Individuals complete a questionnaire asking them questions such as sex, age, weight, height, other health problems they have (i.e. diabetes or smoking) as well as blood pressure and cholesterol if known. Based on these answers, the individual is evaluated according to the standards set by the World Health Organization (WHO). From this assessment the individual begins receiving educational messages encouraging him/her to exercise and eat healthy. Examples of health foods and exercise are given to increase the messages effectiveness.
  • Stanford course on writing iPhone apps available for FREE at the iTunes storeStanBird, directed by Chase Mendenhall (Biology), an intergenerational, local volunteer team of citizen scientists and students will assist in the capture, color¬band marking, and release of the dense population of Western Scrub Jays on the Stanford campus and in surrounding areas. Students and community members will then track the population by submitting photos and observations of the marked birds via cell phone, email, Google maps, and a novel free Apple iPhone Application that automatically records information such as the date, time and GPS location of each photo or observation. The Geo-Historian project at Kent State University plans to put students to work creating multimedia content about historic sites. The technology behind this idea is a program that ties the information to a bar code. Then you could leave that bar code on, say, the memorial commemorating the 1970 Kent State shootings. Visitors could get access to the student-produced audio and video clips by scanning the bar code with their cell phone cameras.QR codes (quick response)
