MediConnect is now live!
After an exciting-yet-challenging project, Allied World Healthcare (AWH) and Singapore Management University (SMU) are proud to announce that MediConnect is live, and being used by clinicians throughout the Philippines.
The digital healthcare platform has been built to connect health care workers with essential information and training modules for a range of different scenarios – ranging from specialist doctors to rural health workers. On top of this, a communication and collaboration platform has been built for secure health worker messaging and file sharing.
Critical to the approach is sharing existing content from partners, as AWH would be unable to create all information needed by all healthcare workers. Our team will be working with health providers, academic institutions and publishers in more developed healthcare systems – and then take their content and tailor it for a new audience. This partnership-driven approach will keep operational costs lower, whilst ensuring a foundation of world-leading content can be made available to healthcare workers throughout the world.

Noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) continue to be the leading cause of death globally, with four out of five people with an NCD living in LMICs. However, there is limited availability of affordable diagnostics for NCDs at the primary care level in many rural populations, making it one of the weakest links in the cascade of care. New innovations are needed to reach these populations with the accessible diagnostics services they need.
