Article
Full-text available
Effective determination of malaria parasitemia is paramount in aiding clinicians to accurately estimate the severity of malaria and guide the response for quality treatment. Microscopy by thick smear blood films is the conventional method for malaria parasitemia determination. Despite its edge over other existing methods of malaria parasitemia dete...
Preprint
Full-text available
Effectively determining malaria parasitemia is a critical aspect in assisting clinicians to accurately determine the severity of the disease and provide quality treatment. Microscopy applied to thick smear blood smears is the de facto method for malaria parasitemia determination. However, manual quantification of parasitemia is time consuming, labo...
Article
Full-text available
One of the deadly endemic diseases in sub-Saharan Africa is malaria. Its prevalence is promoted by lack of sufficient expertise to carry out accurate and timely diagnosis using the standard microscopy method. Where lab technicians are available, the results are usually subjective due to variations in expert judgement. To address this challenge, pro...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Malaria is a public health problem which affects developing countries world-wide. Inadequate skilled lab technicians in remote areas of developing countries result in untimely diagnosis of malaria parasites making it hard for effective control of the disease in highly endemic areas. The development of remote systems that can provide fast, accurate...
Conference Paper
In developing countries, the greatest information sources for disease prevalence are official Electronic Health Records (EHR). However, data is usually affected by human error which flaws decisions by stakeholders. The previous reviews considered data quality findings at only an aggregated level, however, this method is vulnerable to errors if wron...
Chapter
Full-text available
Over the years the quality of health service delivery has drastically improved through deliberate efforts that have been made to implement e-health systems in developing economies. In Uganda particularly, e-health systems have been introduced and implemented in both government and private-owned healthcare units. However, due to lack of a structured...
Conference Paper
The growing need for accurate patient data has propelled the demand for patient level spatial data in the health sector among the developing countries. Unlike developed countries that have embraced developed spatial data infrastructure for public facilities to enable them effectively aggregate disease concentration with accurate locality specificit...
Research
Full-text available
A number of researchers have revealed challenges that exist with the current methods of teaching in trying to achieve learning outcomes using case study based assignments. Studies have suggested the activity theory as a fundamental framework that provides guidelines for educators to improve their teaching with the adoption of various forms of techn...
Technical Report
Full-text available
The context of the essay is in Higher Education Learning in the field of Computing. The challenge is focused on Second year students of Information systems. Students are faced with a challenge of grasping the concepts of technical topics like data and process modeling in system analysis and design and therefore fail to apply the theory they have le...

Article
Requirements process improvement (RPI) in software systems is aimed at systematically controlling changes of the requirements specification and making improvements that result in high quality specifications at reduced costs and delivered within the specified schedule. RPI activities are dynamic and complex processes managing all changes to the requ...
Conference Paper
Improving the requirements process improvement (RPI) of software projects has become an important area of research and professional practice. This paper highlights the inefficiencies in the RPI that results in poor quality, and escalating cost or schedule. The efficiency with which the changing processes are man- aged determines how successful a pr...
Article
Requirements Process Improvement (RPI) in software systems projects has received much attention from both researchers and practitioners. RPI is aimed at systematically controlling changes in the requirements process, and making improvements that result in good quality requirements specifications at reduced costs and delivered within the specified s...
Chapter
The media convergence fever is being felt throughout the field of journalism practice around the globe. Convergence, media cross-ownership and multimedia newsrooms are becoming increasingly part of the vocabulary of contemporary journalism—in practice, education, as well as research. The literature exploring multimedia is expanding rapidly but it i...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Many software development organizations invest heavily in the requirements engineering process programmes, and with good reason. They fail, however, to maximize a healthy return on investment. This paper explores factors that influence requirements process improvement (RPI) with the aim to explain how the attributes of the underpinning process affe...
