We were deeply touched when we learnt, how blindness in most lower-middle class families leads to significant reduction in survival of the family. TechSophy has helped L V Prasad Eye Institute (A World Health Organization Collaborating Center for Prevention of Blindness) to develop the eyeSmart EMR App.
The institute gets their trained help to visit all homes (door-to-door) in the remote villages of India. All the clinical data is recorded in a tablet / mobile application from the door steps of patients through a survey. Using a predefined process, it is then seamlessly synced with the central server over the cloud. Based on the immediate findings of the local medical assistant, the needy are redirected to the nearest Doctor / Technician for further help. Apart from this, the data can be leveraged in several other ways – for creating large public health maps, finding out the root causes for blindness among the poor, coming up with effective prevention mechanisms, etc.
