Vecna Cares Brings Mobile Health Solution to Kenya
Vecna Cares Charitable Trust, an extension of Vecna Medical, launched a project in Nairobi, Kenya to bring updated reporting solutions to local health clinics via mobile health technology.
Prior to this technology, the Mbagathi Clinic had no digitized record system and no procedure for reporting data. The Community Health Workers would visit the Clinic and pick up a list of patients throughout the community and then visit each patient on the list. However, the collected information would never return to the Clinic, therefore leaving each subsequent Community Health Worker without patient history and thus substantial guesswork. This guesswork, in turn, put the patient at risk.
With Vecna's mobile health solution, Community Health Workers are able to close the gap in record-keeping and also increase the quality of life for people living with HIV.
