27 Jun Instahealth: Health Information at the Touch of a Button
InstaHealth (Formerly M-Tambula) is a mobile application that enables anybody with a phone (feature phone or smartphone) to have access to health information instantly. This application uses a wide database that has been built by a team of diligent young individuals and it provides information such as location details for the nearest health facility, doctor or ambulance. It also provides an instant first aid guide, doctor consultations and health awareness information. Their main areas of focus include; maternal and child health, reproductive health, health for the elderly and adolescent health.
Imagine a world where people in developing countries can connect to the nearest health centre or get instant health alerts or share health experiences with millions of people. Imagine getting expert doctor advice that you can rely on just by the use of your phone or computer. Imagine signing up for health insurance with the biggest premium providers in your country or even getting a quick first aid guide.
Why we love Instahealth : Instahealth is bringing health information directly to phones in developing economies. Soon we will see a healthier world transformed by simple technology.
