We are going to embed web apps into the patient tracker, and implement some new functionalities.


Weight graph

A graph showing the weight history of a patient enrolled in the MNCH/PNC (Adult Woman) program

Work distribution

We have been working a lot together on one computer using pair programming, where one person has written the code and the others have been researching how to do things.


Showing a graph in DHIS

What we have learned through the project

  • JavaScript and JQuery
  • Using a REST API
  • Some insight in DHIS 2

Suggested improvements of DHIS 2 API

Better documentation of the API (possibly using a data model to show the relationships between the different resources)

Source Code Repositories


  • Embedd app on patient dashboard.
  • Use hard coded values to call api at first.
  • Use dynamically fethed data to call api.
  • Download and build trunk
  • Run/test
  • Copy changes from PatientDashboard
  • Investigate open question (see below)
  • Try to change from highcharts to nvd3

Open question

  • Which events should we use if the person is enrolled in multiple programs?

How to get the weight using the API

Get event with:

If we use the call above without specifying programStage we get all program stages.

We can then loop through all programStages (each element in the eventList array in the result), and look for the weight (that is the element in dataValues with dataElement: "UXz7xuGCEhU")

Weight id: UXz7xuGCEhU
