The project is a result of a partnership between Ignite Consultants and Lifetime Health Diary Ltd and a number of community groups. We all see a great need to address some of the pressure and problems resulting from the inefficiencies of the current health information management system. A significant slice of the population is not receiving the healthcare they should be, for a variety of reasons. This only makes all of society poorer, as their conditions and quality of life get worse and more expensive to treat than would otherwise be the case with timely interventions.
We believe in a bottom-up approach and harnessing the power of technological innovation, academic expertise matched with real needs of real people on the ground, powered by the spirit of young, talented students who want to make a difference.
We want to work together to, in a collaborative manner, enable cost-effective solutions and drive a movement of access, empowerment and knowledge in healthcare.
I am thrilled to be a part of it and I truly believe that this is the beginning of an exciting journey of collaborative effort to not only empower those the most disadvantaged to live better lives but transform the way we manage our health and interact to create a healthy community enabled by information.
We want this blog to be a communication platform for everybody who is involved and who is supporting this initiative, to share ideas and track our progress. Let`s get it started!
