request for projects - WHO eHealth projects database

By Jo Wood | 19 Nov, 2014

Hi there

I am new to this community and have enjoyed reading through some of the discussions. I am currently working with the WHO & ITU on a project to find and showcase 120 eHealth projects.

The Global Observatory for eHealth Department at WHO, in collaboration with the ITU (International Telecommunication Union), are developing a eHealth project database featuring a variety of eHealth projects from around the world.

We aim to launch the database early next year with an initial 120 eHealth projects, and then encourage countries and organisations to submit their own projects to the database. The projects will be featured on the WHO and ITU websites.

Please get in touch with me to share details of projects that you know of or have worked on so that they can be featured in the initial 120. The projects could be related to digital health, mHealth, telehealth, eLearning etc (anything that falls under the very broad WHO definition of eHealth). They cannot be 100% commercial, and need to be a project with some sort of longevity or future, not just a pilot or study.

Please provide me with a project name, organisation name and details of who owns/manage the project, website address, implementation status and a 100 word (or less) description. I’m particularly interested in projects from lower income and developing countries.

This is a great opportunity to showcase your project to the world!

Thank you
Jo-Anna Wood

This sounds like a very useful project you are doing. I will search the
Ashoka Fellows and others for contributions.

Rather than refusing to accept commercial initiatives/uses, let me suggest
that you only accept those that address base of the pyramid populations.
If someone has a profit making mHealth solution addressing the BoP, we
should rejoice.

Best wishes,

Presently I am working on an e learning project in low and middle income countries.Could you please give me the details for the project like website etc.

Thanks ,

It'd be great to know more about the projects you mentioned especially
DNET. We've created a system for follow-up and management of diabetes and
hypertensive patients using automated phone calls and SMS in Chile and it'd
be great to learn about other technologies and projects.

This is a great project Jo-Anna. Thank you for posting it on GHD.

I am interested in integrated care models and projects addressing physical and mental health issues of children and youth, especially in undeserved communities.

Please let me know if you come across one.

Dear Jo-Anna,

Thank you for developing the eHealth project database. I am really interested in the database. I'm a project researcher at the University of Tokyo and working on a project of integrated care with a cloud-based healthcare system. I would like to tell you about our project.

Project name: Kashiwa project
Organisation name: Kashiwa City and the University of Tokyo
Website address: http://www.iog.u-tokyo.ac.jp/?page_id=278&lang=en (Sorry, the report was written by Japanese)
Implementation status: The system has recently started the full-scall operation.
A 100 word (or less) description: We developed a cloud-cased healthcare system, which aimed at facilitating an inter-professional collaboration on integrated care. The system allows official caregivers to better connect and communicate with nurses and physicians in the region.

For further questions, please contact me at: 3flowergalaxy()gmail.com

Best regards,

I would to learn more about your program as well. My email is <mailto:> and we are located in Boston MAssachusetts US. University Mass Boston.
We have developed a system called POET that is a inthecloud Patient Care and Medication Management enterprise platform. POET can be configured and is adaptable for continuous improvement. It manages a suite of consultations between the clinician and patient according to user defined therapies, assessments and protocols - for particular populations, medications or disease states like diabetes. Consultations are virtual or in-person fully documented.
Consultations can be for adherence, MTM, therapies, diseases and transitions of care.
We're interested in how POET can be utilized globally and if we can collaborate with anyone - either IT groups or clinicians.
Our vision is to enable pharmacists and other clincians to deliver patient care (medication, disease and mental health) anytime and anywhere across the care continuum. Connecting care providers globally for more empowerment, better access and unlocking idle IQ of healthcare workers.
