||Mobile Validity data collection tools and deploy intelligent forms across mobile, wireless, PC, and web platforms. Software tools facilitate data synchronization, quality assurance, and data integration with databases.
Intelligent forms can be written without programming and published across platforms. The data collection technology is comprehensive providing built-in logic, completeness checks, audit trails, version control, security and authentication. These are two examples of how Mobile Validity is being used:
Asthma Critical Event Response System, New York, NY
The New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene Asthma Initiative Program was designed to help improve the outcomes of New York City school children by:
•       Monitoring students across asthma critical events more effectively
•       Notifying healthcare personnel and parents of critical asthma events
•       Promoting general awareness
•       Improving preventative maintenance of the disease
As a part of the integrated solution developed by Warsaw Group, the Mobile Validity software was used for collecting demographic and clinical data at various citywide sites.
Wireless Integrated Pest Management Software System, New York, NY
The New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) launched an initiative in public housing to reduce pest infestations and significantly lower the use of, and exposure to, toxic pesticides.
Mobile Validity data collection software on mobile pen tables allows 23 inspectors to collect data at the point of their inspection work on computerized questionnaires. Inspectors upload their completed reports to the server using a wireless network.
