LiveWell Clinics projects report Spring 2012

LiveWell Clinics projects report Spring 2012

We have experienced unprecedented growth and success with Livewell Clinics in Kenya Africa.

In March of 2012 we officially opened our 5th location in Kenya in the township of Masimba. Adding a fully functioning medical clinic outfitted with a community pharmacy, lab, general medicine, and specialty services to our already flourishing Livewell community starting with our anchor location in Kayole and our satellite locations in Matopeni, Karatina and Karagoya.


Each clinic is fully installed and trained on our operating system that we developed “in the cloud” on a salesforce.com platform called Practice EPR.

In addition to Practiceforce we have squired part ownership in a local company to provide a CRM solution (IE: Human Resources, Inventory Management, etc.) that has been fully integrated with Practice EPR on a scale that is marketable globally.


Community Outreach:

We are proud to announce that literally thousands of local Kenyans have received benefits arising from our tireless efforts in community service.

Each month a topic of communal concern is targeted through free classes and workshops where issues ranging from women s health, the importance of immunizations, self medical checks, and discounted medical products are brought to the community by licensed healthcare professionals.

This has resulted in staggering numbers of consultations, prescriptions, treatments, immunizations, and services being given out as follow up, private appointments.

These appointments also result in the creation of a unique patient number that is associated with a medical record for use as personal medical history, follow up care in a hospitals, and tracking of geographic trends in medical phenomenon for use on a potential global scale.

 

Over 10 community based icons have been appointed as Livewell Ambassadors to bring the message of health and wellness to every facet of the community.

We are pleased to submit an update to our LiveWell Cards Project.  Project to date we have raised money to deliver healthcare services to over 100 Kenyans.

Below are two patient stories from our newest clinic in Matopeni which opened in April.

- A young student attending Kayole North Primary school  was referred by the
school deputy teacher who identified her as a needy child. She fell ill while at school and her parents
could not be reached. The primary school is one of the major institution earmarked for outreach
activities in Matopeni by LiveWell clinics. She was diagnosed and treated for pnuemonia after receiving a livewell card.

- An elderly lady was brought to the clinic by her friend and relative who from their opinion could
not raise money for her treatment. She is a residence of Kayole spring valley. She was provided
a livewell card and her visit resulted in diagnosis and treatment for malaria.

As a result of the LiveWell Cards given to patients who visited our Matopeni Clinic in May some of the diagnosis and treatment included Septic rush, 3 cases of Malaria, URTI,Pheumonia,Soft tissue and Amoebiasis.

USAID SHOPS project update also posted increased patient visits and sales in our Matopeni clinic.  (please read attached USAID SHOPS Website update on our clinics.
