While one member of Medic Mobile's field team is traveling 100 miles on rough roads to visit a remote clinic, other members of our team – software developers, health researchers, and project managers – are working with them to fine-tune models, devise new patient interventions, and make time-saving software improvements. Our teammates exhibit unique levels of patience, confidence, and empathy; we work together every day as a distributed interdisciplinary team to improve health outcomes and ultimately save lives.
We held our first ever all-team meet up, had 18 product releases, brought on 26 new teammates, and trained over 8,000 new health workers. Our with with the Ministry of Health in Siaya, Kenya was featured in BBC News' Disruptors series. At the end of the year, we launched the Community Health Toolkit open-source project alongside 14 partners.
We launched our Standard package, making our tools more accessible than ever, and began working closely with government partners in Kenya and Nepal. Medic Mobile was the recipient of a Global Citizen's Award, named a GAVI INFUSE Pacesetter & a Laureate of The Tech for Global Good. We also added 27 new teammates to our staff.
Our application shifted from case-based care to support people-centered health systems. We launched a customized app for managers and nurses and reached 6, 878 new health workers, a 97% growth rate in health workers supported by our tools.
