This RDT Scanner prototype is designed for image capture and interpretation of Rapid Diagnostic Test results using OpenCV and machine learning techniques. Field testing is currently ongoing, with an initial focus on malaria RDTs. The app is designed to be used in tandem with Muso's community health app, which was built using the community health toolkit. The user is sent from Muso's CHW app to the RDT Capture app and back using Android Intents, as in this demo:
The current version is available in the Play Store. The app was co-designed by the UbiComp lab at the University of Washington, Muso, and Medic Mobile with financial support from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Initial prototyping is taking place within the Muso-led community health innovation network in Mali.
Please note that the app has not yet been clinically validated.
Create a git tag starting with v, e.g. v1.2.3 and push the tag to GitHub.
Creating this tag will trigger a Travis CI to build, sign, and version a new release. The release-ready APKs are available for side-loading from GitHub Releases and are uploaded to the Google Play Console in the "alpha" channel. To release to the public, click "Release to Production" or "Release to Beta" via the Google Play Console.
