1. Have you ever observed a health informatics project in your (other) organization? Please provide a brief introduction.
I have experienced a work-related to informatics. Remote-site recorded all the data of volunteers in the paper which we designed for them (we call “Sample Log”). Then, they have to send us that sample logs along with the samples collected from volunteers to Bangkok. And we have to enter the data from the sample log into our database before using that data for our study.
2. Do you think that this health informatics project can help to improve the current practices, how?
I think it would be better if we can let the staff at remote-site enter the data of volunteers into the database directly from the site instead of sending that sample log to Bangkok. It could help us to reduce cost, workload and save time.
3. Are there any challenges or difficulties in implementing the project?
The challenging of my opinion in question #2 is the readiness of the remote-site. It is not about the site’s staff but it is the public utility of that country which our site located in. some site does not have internet. Some site has a limit of using electricity.
