Due to increasing number of accidents, it has been observed that road traffic injuries are causing considerable economic losses to individuals, their families, and to nations as a whole. Road traffic injuries are a major but neglected public health challenge that requires concerted efforts for effective and sustainable prevention.
To build the capacity of preventing injury by analyzing road traffic accident and injury data, a need was identified to build an application (App) that can facilitate the accurate collection of the injury information along with the personal information of the injured by some trained medical staff in the ambulances or at the hospitals.
The objective is to automate the process of road accident data collection for detailed analysis to prevent injury.
Main Features of App:
Currently, the application offers three main features:
1. Accident reporting App:
The application allows data collectors to submit data using Android App installed on a Tablet or Smart Phone. The collected data is saved on the Tablet and can be exported in excel format. The data can be submitted from various hospitals (AKU, ASH, JMC) using the application.
2. Accident Statistics:
This feature generates different statistical reports on the data collected.
The data can be exported to excel and shared via email/WhatsApp.
3. Self-Accident Reporting:
It is used by citizens to report accidents. It traces the real-time location and allows to upload accident scene photos.
Reduce paperwork as manual reporting is time-consuming.
