I am hoping for suggestions of how to track the arrival and departures of health care workers in remote locations. An idea proposed was to use some sort of a GPS tracker. Is this feasible? Any cheap GPS's that you would suggest? Also we are wondering how to more promptly receive the health data that they collect. Currently they take pictures and someone in the office has to fill in the form manually. Is there a better way? Please advise.

    Stack Exchange sites work best when answering a single question, can I suggest you edit the question to only cover the tracking and then look at a second question about anything else (as long as it's covered by the description here iot.stackexchange.com/help). Also we will probably need more information about the situation to be able to help.

    Agreed. Please read How to Ask and update - this has the potential to be an excellent question. Battery life will be a bottle neck, although solar power might help - where is this located? And, do the workers have cheap Android 'phones, or can you afford them? Can you describe the "use case" in more detail? Thanks Jul 9, 2019 at 8:22
  • To be honest, I am not sure if this question is best suited here or on iot.stackexchange.com as it seems to involve designing a system, not just recommending some software. It's a great question, though. With more details, I would like to design a solution Jul 11, 2019 at 9:54
