We are pleased to announce the second session of the series: “From data collection to visualization: The CommCare use case”. This session will be available in both French and English.

When making the effort to collect data on a program, the logical next step is to to track several parameters over time. This can mean people, equipment, medicine stocks, etc. It is called collecting longitudinal data. In this second webinar we will be demonstrating one of the most feature-rich mobile data collection platforms: CommCare.

Thanks to its powerful form builder and case management features, CommCare allows you to track anything and everything. To help you push your data analysis even further, our expert will also demonstrate how to use common Business Intelligence tools. We will review Tableau and PowerBI, both of which can serve to visualize your data

Finally, because every program has its own specificities and requirements, we will discuss other potential use cases, and which tools may fit them best.

At the end of this webinar you will know whether CommCare is worth considering for your program.
