Improving healthcare infrastructure in low resource settings requires systems solutions that close the information gaps between patients, caregivers and decision-makers. Vecna Cares designs and deploys information management and technology solutions to create measurable impact, helping people live healthier and better lives in environments that have limited access to infrastructure such as power or internet access.
In this webinar, Vecna Cares will provide an overview of their electronic medical record (EMR) collection and sharing systems projects which support hundreds of thousands of unique patients and hundreds of front-line health workers who serve them.
