CANBERRA — By combining medical knowledge with a data collection and analysis platform, a new partnership between digital health care support companies THINKMD and Ona is aiming to deliver innovative health services and support to people living in developing countries.
Through MEDSINC, Vermont-based THINKMD provides a mobile clinical assessment platform that enables minimally-skilled health care workers to gather patient information, assess severity of illness, and receive treatment recommendations.
Ona, a Nairobi- and Washington, D.C.-based vendor for the Open Smart Register Platform, or OpenSRP, supports the creation of a comprehensive digital health register platform that can be integrated into a country’s existing health information systems and architecture — and enable analytics of national health.
