SMS Clinic

furthering mobile health research

ABOUT THE PROJECT

We're collaborating with the Jammeh Foundation for Peace Hospital in The Gambia, and providing them with software for an SMS-based appointment reminder system. The focus of the system will be improving participation in prenatal and postnatal programs for new parents.

These services are extremely important for new mothers, and we hope that an appointment reminder system will help keep patients engaged through the duration of the prenatal and postnatal programs.

The application

The application we're building will provide an intuitive web interface, and use a mobile gateway to allow doctors to quickly set up appointment reminders for their patients. We will most likely use a mobile gateway provider like Twilio, and perhaps a scheduler like IronWorker.
