Deploy the Tools
Since 2010, Medic Mobile’s staff of a hundred implementation experts, designers, developers, data scientists, and researchers has supported community health systems in more than twenty countries. Alongside a coalition of partners, we are expanding our efforts in order to equip more health workers delivering care in the hardest-to-reach communities.
We support two options for equipping health workers with open-source software: The Standard Package, and Community Health Apps built with the Community Health Toolkit. We look forward to hearing from you and exploring collaboration!
The Standard Package
This package is an easy-to-deploy version of the software that comes with free remote-support for organizations and clinics. The Standard Package is our most accessible option for deploying the toolkit, enabling you to deliver tried-and-tested mobile health use cases with minimal support. Over the years, we’ve refined specific workflows to support health workers and community health systems. We package high-impact, replicable workflows and implementation resources into our Standard Package option.
As a partner, you will have access to an app for frontline health workers, easy-to-use SMS workflows, a messaging gateway, step-by-step implementation guides, training materials, and user materials. We also provide remote support and invite you to a community of practitioners. Medic Mobile asks that partners cover the other direct costs for their deployment, including hardware, SMS bundles, and mobile data bundles. Partners can deploy the Standard Package for antenatal care, postnatal care, and childhood immunization coordination.
Jesse Kihuha, CMMB Program Coordinator for CHAMPS
Medic Mobile, in partnership with CMMB Kenya, Kitui South Sub County has deployed our standard mHealth package to 349 community health volunteers in 6 wards linked to 36 health facilities for antenatal care, postnatal care and immunization.
Community Health Apps built with the Community Health Toolkit
Medic Mobile developed the Community Health Toolkit’s core application framework, and has worked closely with a number of partners to develop and deploy reference applications that build on and extend this framework.
In addition to serving as the technical steward for the CHT, Medic Mobile supports partners with needs assessments, design, app development, training, and capacity building. Medic Mobile works alongside model-building partners to deploy the full Medic Mobile toolkit, embed technology into new models of care, and advance R&D through human-centered design and research.
Medic Mobile supports scale-ups within national health systems, with a focus on government leadership and ownership. In 2018, we are supporting scale-ups of government-led systems with the Ministry of Health in Kenya and Ministry of Health in Nepal, as well as implementing partners in each country.
