Database Consulting & Design
J.Immel develops university, nonprofit, and public health technology with the belief that technology helps research groups and nonprofits to discover new ideas that improve quality of life everywhere.
For example, at Yale University our case management software effectively manages a Child Mental Health clinic, reports results to the Connecticut Department of Children and Families (DCF) and interfaces with Yale Medical Hospital central billing.
By visiting organizations, meeting with people, and reviewing existing software,
we've discovered that many organizations could save money, improve management and
reach out to community more effectively.
Here are some other examples:
- Mobile communications system in Bangladesh connects village field workers and improves water quality.
- Tracking election results in Nicaragua and producing statistical reports.
- Building an online community and media resource center for The Center for Latin American Studies at Harvard University.
