Rural health care

Project partner: Stellenbosch University

Challenge: Help nurses who work in mobile clinics in rural South Africa to monitor their patients better and more conveniently.




"Summo" is a tool that makes the every day life of nurses and patients in South Africa easier: It is an SMS-based service for mobile clinics which enables nurses to summon their patients at a central point at the farm in a widespread rural area. Summo helps the nurses to safe time on their routes and therefore makes the rural health care providers more efficient. It helps patients to never miss their treatment and makes the routes of the nurses more efficient.
