We knew we could help alleviate some of the pressure to providers with our healthcare experience.

What it does

Cuts down on manual steps and saves time.

How I built it

We built out a front end form, that we translate to a FHIR resource to send to a FHIR server.

Challenges I ran into

Creating the initial FHIR resources, still mapping the resources but at this point pretty much mapping variables. (1 hour left to be production ready)

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

We finished creating the FHIR part(the hard part)

What I learned

FHIR should be the new standard. The sooner the better we can have more apps that actually contribute to solutions like this vs having companies hoard data and not share it.

What's next for COVID-19 Reporter

-We need to get some funding to get some of the plugins for the integration engine. There's tools that integrate with FHIR really well that we don't have time to develop ourselves(don't reinvent the wheel). -Deploy to the cloud and get a baseline for costs. Our solution will scale to the entire country if we use AWS with almost no downtime. -Implement authentication of providers (This might already exist, need to leverage a solution)

CDC just released this:

tldr; WH is going to require reports everyday at 5pm. Use case: You give us the questions, we build out the form, and just have someone(from the task force) query the FHIR server, and the data will already be there. No need for manually inputting this data.

Process flow: 1) User logs onto AWS host page 2) AWS page authenticates against auth service to prove providers identity. 3) User selects the form they want to fill out 4) User fills out the form and clicks on submit 5) Message is sent to Mirth Connect Integration engine. (Scales out using AKS) 6) Message gets transformed to FHIR, and sent to specified FHIR server.

For our demo: we used a public fhir server that we were able to spin up quickly with all of the endpoints ready to hit. We can easily make more forms that can be spun up and sent to whichever health org we need to.

Our Aim: Shorten wasted time. If it takes 20 to 30 minutes to fill this out manually, and we can cut this down to 50 percent, thats 10-15 minutes saved for each form. If an office has 100 people waiting, that's over 24 hours saved plus some change. This solves the immediate problem of sending to the agency needed to send to. As engineers we also had to ask how to we help out if this happens again tomorrow or in a few months, what if there's another pandemic? How about other countries that don't have as many developers to tackle this issue? This shortens time and helps with healthcare provider burnout.
