Paediatric Telemedicine Network
During a mission to help victims of ISIS in Northern Iraq, we enlisted the help of a small team of Paediatric Specialists ready to assist remotely and many children benefited from the remote consultations
Recognising the urgent need for a solution that can transcend borders and reach remote communities, we worked with experts in telemedicine to create a mobile case management and referral platform that offers a unique approach to help save the lives of children in besieged or remote areas.
Our mobile app is available free of charge to an international network of NGO’s, hospitals and mobile clinics in order to deliver a cost-effective, high-impact programme for the improvement of child health across the globe. The 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 doctors 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.
We aim to bridge the gap in paediatric treatment between the global North and South by bringing global expertise to meet the needs of communities affected by disaster, fragility, conflict, or remoteness that will endure beyond the administering of emergency aid and assistance.
