rapidSMS, an SMS platform for health systems
This is an SMS based system that could be useful in many settings. It would be great to see where organizations or people thought this technology could be useful.
RapidResponse is a customized mHealth platform developed for the Millennium Villages Project with support from the UNICEF Innovation Group. RapidResponse uses SMS text messages to facilitate and coordinate the activities of field based health care providers, usually community health care workers (CHWs). Using simple text messages, CHWs are able to register patients and send in health reports to a central web dashboard that allows a health team to closely monitor the health of their community. Powerful messaging features help facilitate communication between the members of the health system and an automated alert system helps reduce gaps in treatment.
