Best Practice Cultural Competence is an online peer review web application developed for reviewers to assess the teaching practices for healthcare students. The web application is created to address the general question of what are the best evidence-based educational interventions to improve current and future healthcare professionals ability to provide culturally competent healthcare for patients of different aces/ethnicities, origins/ancestries, and cultures. It will be used for the systematic review protocol “Educational Interventions on Culturally Competent Healthcare: A Systematic Review of the Rationale, Content, Teaching Methods, and Measures of Effectiveness”.

Before our development of the web based online peer review application, our client's team were using excel to document their responses and each will email their reviews to the team lead. Once received the team lead will compile all data at the end of the week, then redistribute the excel sheets for members to continue to provide their responses.
Performed research and development by gathering software requirements and specifications to understand client's needs, designed the User-Interface & User-Experience via Wireframes, and developed client-side and server-side functionality with object-oriented PHP and PDO.
Resulting in a custom Content Management System that automates the process of distributing codes to articles, assigning reviewers to articles, sequencing review process, and calculating the final rating of articles using a Relational Database Management System.
