Nyaya Health: PLoS Medicine - Web 2.0 and global health delivery
Our organization, Nyaya Health, uses multiple "Web 2.0" tools in our work in
rural Nepal. Our new paper in PLoS Medicine today offers an overview of such
tools in health work in resource-poor settings. We greatly appreciate any
feedback and advice from others. Thanks!
- The growing field of global health delivery is in need of technological
strategies to improve transparency and operations research.
- Our organization has implemented several simple ‘‘Web 2.0’’ strategies
while delivering medical and public health services in rural Nepal.
- These strategies help us improve transparency, receive
critical commentary from outside experts, and compare approaches to
organizing budgets, pharmaceutical procurement, medical treatment
protocols, and public health programs.
- The platforms include quantitative outcomes data and logistics
protocols on a wiki; an open-access, online deidentified patient
database; geospatial data analysis through real-time maps; a blog; and a
public line-by-line online budget.
