Kenya Trending In Telemedicine

Donato Tramuto, founder, chairman and CEO of Physicians Interactive, alongside Milton Ochieng, recently presented at a session this week, “Apps Save Lives: How mHealth Technology Improves Healthcare Quality Worldwide.” Ochieng is the founder of the Lwala Community Hospital and Lwala Community Alliance in Kenya. The aim was to address the audience on how mHealth can change Third World nations. Ochieng has developed his clinic to a more digital healthcare side: “To help his clinic, Ochieng’ joined forces with Health eVillages, the non-profit launched in 2011 by Tramuto and Kerry Kennedy through the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights. Health eVillages supplied the clinic with iPads and healthcare apps developed by Skyscape. Doctors and nurses used them to access the latest in healthcare education and treatments, and the devices were sent out into the surrounding countryside with trained community health workers to teach other villagers.”
