Vensa Health Chief Executive Ahmad Jubbawey will present on the importance of mobile health and how it can assist with improving health outcomes across primary and secondary care. A case study on applications in New Zealand will highlight the success of mHealth programmes and how they have assisted with achieving Ministry of Health targets.
Ahmad Jubbawey, CEO, Vensa Health says, “There is a significant opportunity to transform healthcare delivery through the advances in technology. An increasing demand for personalised care, one billion people underserved in developing countries, and the challenges facing the health sector are the key motivators behind the emergence of mHealth.”
“In New Zealand GP providers and hospitals using our mHealth technologies have experienced impressive improvements in appointment attendance, immunisation rates and efficiency. We’ve also been able to target key government priority health targets, such as increased immunisation for 2 year olds. So we’re able to positively impact our health outcomes as a country in a really targeted way.”
Jubbawey will talk about the impact the technology can have on developing countries globally and how Ministries of Health and policy makers can use of mobile phones and other ICT to promote health.
Vensa Health’s TXT2Remind practice-patient messaging system delivers appointment reminders, screening and immunisation reminders, health advice, medication reminders and laboratory results direct to the patient.
