Knowledge Co-op project #68. Database development
Epilepsy SA approached the UCT Knowledge Co-op for assistance with the development of an electronic client database system. Manual reporting was becoming too time consuming. They required a system that would manage their client base and track all services offered, then compile reports of all activities. The reports are required for management and to provide funders with an understanding of Epilepsy SA's efforts. In addition staff would need to be trained to use the new system. The UCT Knowledge Co-op approached the Honours Outreach and Community Involvement Programme (HOCIP) based in the Information Systems (IS) department. Ewan James was recruited to dedicate his community service to this project.
