How would you look up patient histories during a mobile clinic in rural Kenya? In nearly every case… you don’t. Mobile medical teams track patients on pieces of paper that are either stored in boxes – never to be found again – or thrown away. Without access to patients’ past medical history, issues are misdiagnosed, abnormalities are missed, and medications are over/incorrectly prescribed, leading to preventable deaths.
What if we could provide a truly portable, reliable, and self-contained medical records system? No internet, no electricity, no servers, no big laptops/desktops. Using a distributed network, we can help change the way mobile clinics provide healthcare to rural populations.
