ClickDiagnostics has brought together top-notch technologists, development activists, entrepreneurs, medical professionals and public health practitioners to bring new dimension to addressing the above issues using mobile phones. It is based on the premise that as mobile phone coverage extends to all corners of the world, mobile-phone based health services will become increasingly ubiquitous for connecting different layers of the public health infrastructure and also to collect patient health data and enable remote diagnosis connecting patients to medical professionals, anywhere. Since our incorporation in May 2008, we have been implementing mobile-phone based tele-consultation services in Africa, South Asia, and the Americas, enabling patients to access quality medical treatment in areas where there is little or no access to doctors. At the same time, we have been working with health organizations, governments, and NGOs, to collect real-time health data enabling effective health interventions. With a mobile tele-consultation platform, we also added medical record analysis features enabling doctors to view patient medical history in order to provide appropriate diagnosis and treatment advice.
