2013 promises to be a very exciting year for Carego International!
Our continued efforts in Kenya have yielded opportunites that once only exsited on the whiteboard and now are being put into action.
We have moved off of our previous cloud based SAAS (software as a service) platform and developed our own operating system. In the developmental stages of reseach and development just a few years ago in Kenya, we realized that most established clinics that we fortunate enough to be using computer programming for their records, and patient journey needs, were using the only one available to them. This happened to be the service developled for use in hopsitals. Simply put the software was far to robust and overblown for use on the clinic level. The other fact was that this software was simply an operating system and not being utalized to gather information in an orderly way.
We partnered with salesforce.com and developed a cloud based application that was custom talilored to the clinic level operations while simultaneoulsly gathering all information and storing it in a single secure database.
Once this software was complete we began to aggressivly open 5 clinics around Kenya for beta testing and began the task of gathering feedback on functionality while creating national patient ID's.
Soon we realized that Kenya was a great foundation and would continue to be nourished, but we needed feedback globally.
We hand delivered our product to Pakistan, India, Indonesia, and Vietnam and continued to gather opinions and system requests on how to build a better product.
Mid last year we bagan the process of moving our systems and information to our own platform and we are pleased to announce that Carego Complete is finally ready for BETA testing in Kenya.
In addtion to a far more detailed system, and secure cloud based database, we have created realtionships with the MOH in Kenya and Vietnam in an effort to expand on HIE (health information exchange)
Our 5th clinic in Kenya is open and thriving like the other 4.
Thousands of Kenyans have been helped mediacally by our staffed professionals and invaluable data has been harvested for the use of a geographic snapshot of areas health.
2013 will see us continuing to build the Kenyan healthcare structure as well as full scale deployment in Vietnam as well.
Global Giving has helped to maintain our connection to communities while giving us a wonderful relationaship with an established name in goodwill.
By end of February 2013, Carego Complete will be operational in our 3/5 of our Kenyan clinics and expsoed to numerous clinics as well as hospitals in Vietnam.
