Incident Reports Tracking System for Daniel Kids
Students: Timothy Allen, Gina Chin Fatt, Matias Ellera, and Stephen Jones
Community Partner: Daniel Kids Foundation, Inc.
Industry Mentor: Jonathan Huber, Bill Beard, and Karin Raudsep from System Innovators
Daniel Memorial Inc. (Daniel Kids) serves over 2,000 children through various programs including inpatient psychiatric care, behavior management, foster care, adoption, and counseling. The Raptor Solutions team developed an Incident Reports Tracking System (IRTS) to streamline the risk management incident report tracking, approval and aggregation of report data. The main function of the IRTS is to gather information from reporters (i.e. employees or witnesses to an incident), approve reports (functionality restricted to directors and managers), and export report data on a quarterly and annual basis. The IRTS is accessible to all employees at all Daniel Kids locations in a closed (intranet), web-based system. The MVC programming model allowed each component of the system to be developed and tested independently and joined together as the development process progresses. This approach also allowed for flexibility in a team development environment.

- Ability for appropriate supervisors and managers approve an incident reportv
- Ability for administrators to manage user accounts
- Ability for administrators to manage list of programs
- Abiity for exporting incident report data into Excel

Community Partner: World Arts Film Festival
Industry Mentor: Nicholas Campanini and Mike Potts from feature
World Arts Film Festival (WAFF) is a film and arts event program in Jacksonville, Florida serving all ages and abilities, including those with special needs. The annual three-day festival screens over 100 short independent films from around the world, while simultaneously producing educational panels, interactive workshops, receptions and awards. The organization benefits the community by making the arts accessible to everyone. In order to make the event more engaging while providing feedback for the contributing artists, WAFF wanted a voting application. During the film festival, every hour a set of films is screened simultaneously. World Arts Film Festival wants to enable audience to vote on the screened films at the end of every hour. Audience will be able to cast a single vote on one of the films presented in the previous hour. WAFF wanted two standalone applications, one mobile and one web, to provide a voting platform that treats each voter as a unique entity and allows one vote per block of films presented over a three day event. The votes received will be calculated and displayed on a screen “Leader Board” for the public, then stored for later use by the organization. Additionally, the system will collect anonymous voter demographic data for use with marketing and grant applications.

Waste Not Want Not is a non-profit rescuing unwanted food from the community that currently does all of its resource tracking using a pen and paper system, which offers a host of problems. Currently, when a volunteer delivers rescued food from a vendor to Waste Not Want Not facility, she or he handwrites the quantity of each type of food received from that donor onto that day's daily sheet. The daily sheets, tailored to list only the vendors expected on a given day of the week, are created and updated manually in an Excel spreadsheet. Waste Not Want Not needs a web based resource tracking application that has two parts: the Administrator Portal and the Rescuer Log. The rescuer log identifies rescuers, collects the amounts of food the rescuer has picked up, and tracks the number of hours they have spent volunteering. The administrator portal provides a secure login, a workflow to review and edit flagged records, a workflow to import scheduled rescues in a CSV format, a workflow to export records that are ready for export to a CSV format, a workflow to update and add store/food rules, and a workflow to add users, delete users, and change the current user's password.
