Request a Walkthrough
Medic Mobile was created for people delivering care in hard-to-reach areas. The tools support multiple languages, run offline when needed, and sync data connectivity is available. They run on basic phones, smartphones, tablets, and computers, supporting people doing critical work in communities, health facilities, and management offices. We're committed to developing open-source software, sharing learnings, and lowering barriers to adoption, scale, and reach for these tools.

Guidance for services and care
Health workers provide crucial services for people in their communities. The app guides them through different actions, such as screening for danger signs during a pregnancy visit or assessing, diagnosing, and treating a sick child. Actions can be prompted based on information about the health worker or person under care. They can include images and videos, conditional logic for decision-making and clinical workflows, and tailored results with next steps.

For health workers working in communities with weak internet or mobile data connectivity, Medic Mobile harnesses SMS as a communication and data channel.
