The efforts of the Emory Prevention Research Center, a non-profit organization housed at Emory’s Rollins School of Public Health, are directed towards community-based cancer prevention and reducing health disparities in rural communities. The EPRC is partnered with the Southwest Georgia Cancer Coalition and a Community Advisory Board to conduct research, offer training, share results, and provide evaluation technical assistance to local organizations in 33 counties of rural southwest Georgia.
Healthy Homes / Healthy Families is a research survey used to help families set "healthy household rules". They needed to move the successful pilot survey from paper to online collection through desktops and hand-held tablets.
DesignHammer created a custom online survey system on the CodeIgniter platform with a user interface designed in consultation with the client. The system also provides a suite of administrative tools that allow designated Health Coaches to manage the full lifecycle of a participant's interaction with the program.
The program launched successfully with an initial implementation of the Healthy Homes Healthy Families survey. The initial implementation was expanded with more administrative features, allowing for a greater level of participant management within the application.
