I would like to create an alert for a program based on 3 or more probable cases being identified in an area. The alert will be sent out to staff to then go and intervene/vaccinate in this area based on the higher number of cases.
I think that I would need to create a program indicator to base an alert on, but I am not sure how to go ahead with creating it.
The basis of the indicator would be as follows as far as I understand:
(Case outcome == “probable”) >= 3
The filters would then be used to do this based on time and Org Unit - this is where I am getting stuck. How would I create a filter for the expression to only be analysed within a specific OrgUnit? Similarly, I would like this calculation (i.e. the 3 probable cases) to be filtered to within a one month period.
i.e. 3 probable cases must be reported in a specific OrgUnit within a month. If this is the case, then an alert will be sent out to vaccination teams to go vaccinate the area.
I would appreciate any suggestions or advice on how to go about doing this.
