Use cases

Designed for integrated care

Medic Mobile works with partners to support integrated community health systems that improve the quality, accessibility, speed, and equity of primary health care. We bring together evidence-based workflows for community health workers, facility staff, and managers. Open-source tools help ensure safe births, track outbreaks, treat illnesses door-to-door, keep stock of essential medicines, communicate about emergencies, and more. 

We know that in practice, health workers provide care and services for people. By combining the use cases described below, tools can support more comprehensive healthcare delivery. We support a team- based approach to healthcare delivery and management, helping people in different roles to work together to deliver care.

By increasing coverage and improving equity for essential services, we aim to reduce maternal and neonatal mortality, improve child health, and strengthen community health systems. Through years of human-centered design alongside health workers, research, and implementation experience, we have identified specific uses for software tools that improve health in communities.
