Global paediatric network
In areas of conflict time is of the essence. Whether transporting victims of war across the borders, reuniting kidnapped children with their families or helping sick and injured children in besieged areas, we are ready to help.
Save A Child Global Paediatric Network combines paediatric expertise with digital technology to create a mobile case management and referral platform (app based interface)to help save the lives of sick and injured children in besieged or remote areas across the globe.
The Save A Child app is available free of charge to an international network of NGO’s, hospitals, mobile clinics and education groups in order to deliver a cost-effective, high-impact programme for the improvement of child health across the globe. The mobile app is designed for areas with poor infrastructure and uses technology that is optimised for use in resource-constrained contexts to create a scalable, cost-effective and accessible solution.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, virtual care is among the best solutions for mitigating the spread of disease. The Save A Child mobile app can facilitate public health mitigation strategies by providing a safer option for healthcare staff and patients, reducing potential infectious exposures by connecting medical staff to the resources they require in order to save children's lives.
The software can also contribute to data collection by providing a comprehensive tool for documenting outbreaks and other health hazards.
Data compliance and mitigation of liability concerns are key focus areas and Save A Child has consulted with Legal experts in regard to digital child safety. Part of the legal indemnification process for using the app includes data protection regulation and observation / implementation of procedures as well as safeguarding for vulnerable children.
Our platform is app-based which makes the adoption of our solution by local medics and healthcare workers much faster with virtually no training required to use it. The app is intuitive and available to download for all devices. Our inherently global solution makes us scalable, yet agile without heavy administrative processes or training programmes. We can efficiently deliver expert paediatric support for medical staff with immediate effect - both of which are critical for saving children’s lives.
Doctors can refer a case in multiple languages and correspond with the first available specialist to receive treatment advice to better diagnose and/or care for their patient.
