Try a demo
This guide is for anyone new to the Sana platform and is interested in a quick demonstration of how the platform works.
Required Hardware and Software
- Data collection: Android based smartphone running at minimum Android OS version 1.6. Warning: Android versions greater than 3.0 have not been extensively tested with the Sana client and may not be stable.
- Device with a web browser.
What you should know before you start.
You should have a basic working knowledge of navigating your way through an Android smart phone-i.e. how to start an application, menu buttons, back button, etc. Ideally, you should have tried to install a few apps.
Get the mobile client.
On a mobile mobile device, click on the following link or scan the barcode below:
You should be presented with a download completed notification which can be selected to start the installation. If you are not, you may need to browse to your Downloads folder and select the sana-release-1.1.1apk file. Once installed you can start the Sana application and start collecting data.
Try collecting data
This section shows a few screenshots from a simple procedure which will allow you to collect a few pieces of data and upload them
to the Sana demo server.
- The application must first have the sample procedures loaded. Starting with the main Sana screen visible, press the Menu button on your phone and select Reload Database. No additional configuration should be required as the client comes with defaults properly set for the demo server.
- Select and start a new procedure using the button on the main screen.
- Start entering data.
- When you reach the last step, press the Save and Upload to Server button.
View the Results.
From your phone or other web enabled device,
- open a browser and enter: https://demo.sana.csail.mit.edu/openmrs/index.htm
- Enter guest and Sanamobile1 for the username and password
- Select the Sana tab visible towards the top of the screen.
For an actual patient encounter, reviewing clinicians would append information to the encounter-diagnosis, request for additional information, comments, etc. and send a notification back to the phone
