a.) Title: Patient + Health Worker + Mobile Phone = Enhanced Healthcare in South Africa?
b). Author: Jocelyn Anstey Watkins
c.) Department: Warwick Medical School
d.) Abstract: Mobile phones can be a powerful solution to deliver healthcare in rural South Africa, by improving patient outcomes and strengthening the unsteady public health system. Enhanced mobile communication between patients and health workers may have an advantageous effect as use becomes normalized into routine clinical practice. How? Doctors are self-innovating by creating technological solutions such as an eye test app to overcome healthcare access barriers. They are responding to these barriers where resources are limited. Innovation out of necessity is driven by current poor diagnostic and referral services. National health policy needs to support local mobile health solutions.
