Software Engineering: Ghana 2010-2014
Between 2010 and 2014, WSU Computer Science students established an ongoing “open sourced” electronic medical records project in partnership with Korle Bu Teaching Hospital in Accra, Ghana to build and support a sustainable software system, through ongoing Study Abroad experiences. This collaboration effort provided WSU Computer Science students first-hand, real-world experience working on a long-term software engineering project, and also provided the Ghanaian people several opportunities to work side-by-side with us, learning Information Technology (IT) skills to support the new system as we built upon the software’s foundation. The electronic medical records project, currently in use, has successfully collected accurate data on the treatment of large numbers of patients at the clinical level, and serves for resource management and reporting outcomes to the Ghanaian government and other world health agencies.

Another project we did in Ghana was a Hotel Reservation System for The Treasureland Hotel in Kumasi, Ghana.
