CareMe E-clinic uses technology to monitor patients of chronic diseases living in remote areas or refugee camps to increase the quality of the healthcare they receive.
World Health Organization data indicates that over 80% of deaths reported annually in developing countries are due to chronic illnesses. In Rwanda specifically, frequent challenges that patients come across are lack of medical follow-up, low medical education, and inappropriate referral systems.
Moreover, chronically ill patients are more prone to death since they are immunocompromised. They are also expected to engage in self-care practices, but about 85% of them are not guided and educated about self-care management.
CareMe E-clinic is an artificial intelligence-powered platform that electronically monitors underserved chronic patients from rural areas and refugee camps. Data collected from patients is provided to partner clinics who have the capacity to address their needs. This contributes to patients receiving improved quality of care. It will also allow for the provision of personalized medical education, disease management for patients and higher accuracy of diagnosis and treatment options.
We are therefore helping healthcare institutions and holding them accountable to prioritize and fast-track chronic patients with the help of data. We are aligned with Rwanda’s vision of becoming regional digital hub and saving 8300 more lives by 2020.
