Minimization Of Flash Floods Water Using Gis Based Water Harvesting

ABSTRACT In the last few years devastating flash floods descending downstream through valleys have occurred in East Nile Locality-Sudan. A flash flood can be caused by intense rain, particularly when it takes place in a saturated area where rain has previously fallen. Under these conditions the additional rain runs off over the surface and accumulates in streams and channels at a much accelerated pace. Runoff is the one of the components consists of water cycle and useful water resou...

Tools And Techniques For Clinical Decision Support: A Case Of Tanzania

ABSTRACT Despite the use of HIS in developing countries, healthcare practitioners rely on manual CDS tools and techniques that cause challenges in their work. However, the use of advanced tools and techniques might make use of the largely accumulated data in order to improve CDS. No studies have explored on the application of data analytics techniques in improving CDS by taking advantage of available clinical data being continuously collected by the existing HIS. The aim of this study ...

Evaluation of Heights Interpolation Methods Using Geographical Information Systems

AbstractThe geoid is an equipotential surface which coincides on the average with the mean sea level has significant relevance in geodesy, surveying and other earth related disciplines.This thesis focuses on the digital terrain modeling (DTM) technique based on geometrical interpolation approach by fitting a surface that depends on the reference points that are chosen in the critical and characteristic locations of the field to represent the trend of the surface. Using the orthometric h...

Challenges In Implementing Patient-Centred Information Systems In Tanzania: An Activity Theory Perspective

ABSTRACT Defaulter tracing systems are patient centred information systems which are used to enhance monitoring of patients who have dropped out of health programs. The aim of this study is to explore the operation of defaulter tracing systems in practice. The study has been undertaken in Tanzanian health facilities by using qualitative data collection methods. Activity theory is employed as a conceptual framework to analyze the findings. Findings show that the implementation of default...

Developing Dropout Predictive System For Secondary Schools, By Using Clasification Algorithm: A Case Study Of Tabora Region

ABSTRACT Recently, there has been an increase of enrollment rate of secondary schools students in Tanzania, due to introducing fee free and expansion of compulsory basic education from pre-primary to form four.

Informing BPM practice in Emergency Units of South African hospitals for improved patient flow.

AbstractGlobally, higher healthcare demand strains existing systems, already overburdened by alack of resources and funding while longer life expectancy and increased disease burdenforce higher patient loads. A majority of the South African population is medically uninsuredand therefore depend on emergency care; consequently, the healthcare service demandeasily exceeds available acute care to prevent life threat. When this happens, emergencycentres suffer from overcrowding and long pa...

Adoption Of E-Learning And Usability Challenges In E-Learning Applications In Kenya: Case Of Elimu Digital E-Learning Prototype Application

The study aimed at establishing the factors promoting adoption of E-Learning and determining the usability challenges in E-Learning applications in Kenya. Consequently, an E-learning educational prototype application was developed to address the usability challenges. The prototype application dubbed “Elimu Digital” was designed to complement physical classroom teaching by providing an online representation of course content.  Both quantitative and qualitative analysis were emp...

A Framework For Profiling Crime Reported Using Social Media – A Case Of Twitter Data In Kenya

Crime profiling helps law enforcement agencies understand, tackle and sometimes predict the next move by criminals. This can be achieved by monitoring and studying patterns and trends that have occurred in the past and continue to occur in the present. Social media platforms such as Facebook, Google Plus, Instagram, Reddit and in this case Twitter, have created platforms where people share views, opinions and emotions all the while influencing and informing others. This research set out...
