Client Description

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.

The Challenge

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.

The Solution

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 Results

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.
