Ecocarrier™ Inc. in cooperation with Otung Limited (operating as RaHa Solutions) bring
TeleHealth and TeleMedicine technology/solutions to bear on the requirement for improving
healthcare provision in rural Africa.
Telemedicine refers specifically to remote clinical services, whereas Telehealth refers to remote
non-clinical services, such as provider training, administrative meetings, continuing medical
education and clinical services.
Traditional Telemedicine Use-Cases Include:
• Providing clinical support
• Overcoming geographical barriers
• Diagnosis and treatment of routine medical issues
• Follow-up patient care
• Real-time access to patient records
• Exam and procedure documentation
• Remote consultations and second opinions with experts during a crisis
Telemedicine is quickly becoming a viable solution to help doctors and medical professionals provide routine preventive care to patients living in rural areas with limited access to quality healthcare.
The prevailing low-cost and expansive availability of WiFi access to the Internet and the rapid
adoption of Smartphones and Tablets available at affordable prices and the advent of
Augmented Reality (AR) and Mixed Reality (MR) technology and their application in remote
interactions among people who are geographically apart have together changed the
TeleMedicine now includes the following AR & MR-enabled Use-Cases:
• Taking a patient’s temperature and vital signs
• Triage and emergency care workflows and Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs)
• Remote care
• Procedural training
• Patient monitoring + care
• Immersive learning – enabling medical students to work and interact with virtual
• Medical education consultations
• Updating and accessing patient records in real-time
• Video recording and live streaming medical procedures
One of the most widely touted benefits of telemedicine is remote consultation and collaboration. MRESENCE™ with HMD4XR takes telemedicine one step further by enabling realtime on- scene collaboration in critical or emergency response situations anywhere in the world.
Front-line healthcare and first response teams can live stream what they are seeing, receive live feedback, and begin to triage and diagnose patients while hands-free and focused.
Note: WtsWrng (What’s Wrong) is a technology as a service for the illiterate. It is for diagnostics without the use of language in text or speech and is not sensitive to gender or culture. We’ll license WtsWrng for use with TeleCare with MRESENCE™ and we shall propose it for use in the project with Amref.
