About MyHealth@Hand App

In many countries, there is a critical shortage of well-trained healthcare providers, and so the efficient delivery of healthcare is essential. Three factors which can support efficiency are empowerment of clients; connecting healthcare providers and clients; and the efficient use of medical data. Clients visit many different healthcare providers. However, their medical history and information about previous visits are not transferred to all of the healthcare providers involved in most cases. Tests and examinations need to be redone and clients need to recount their medical history over and over again. More importantly, maternal and newborn mortality and morbidity are still a major problem in many countries. By promoting the involvement of women in their own care and linking them more closely to the healthcare system, devastating problems can be prevented. MyHealth@Hand makes this possible.

Health[e]Foundation developed the app in collaboration with Industry 62 and Elagem. These companies have developed the Estonian nationwide digital health information system, and continue to develop innovative technological methods of improving care that are appropriate for local situations in other countries. The app is now in the proof of concept stage. For the first pilot the app was introduced in Uganda in April 2019, followed by testing and piloting in Tanzania in September 2019 and in Kenya in November 2019.
