    Innovative health infrastructure that translates into meaningful impact

    67% of Pakistan’s healthcare is funded out of pocket. Many households sell assets, borrow money and divert resources from other needs to support their healthcare expenses. This fuels alternate, cheaper, and suboptimal means of care.

    IHS has built and implemented mobile applications, electronic medical records and interactive SMS systems that have supported programs cross cutting infectious diseases, mental health, surgery, maternal child health, immunizations, and noncommunicable diseases.  Our health infrastructure works to support programs in both public and private settings and target the most vulnerable populations – creating opportunities for healthier lives in Pakistan.

    Bangladesh

    Creating technology to help build and create access to better healthcare

    Bangladesh has the third largest number of poor people in world after India and China.  It is estimated that only 30% of the population has access to primary healthcare. This places a large burden on the private healthcare system that majority of the population cannot afford.  Traditional healers account for 43% of the healthcare providers while community health workers account for 7%.

    IHS has created technology that strengthens systems and increases access to healthcare. Our customized health infrastructure targets the poorest populations and supports programs battling against infectious diseases and maternal child health by enabling programs to systematically scale their operations.

    Indonesia

     

    Harnessing mobile technology to widen access to better healthcare

    Indonesia has a population of more than 250 million people – the fourth-largest in the world. However, it is estimated that the country only spends 3.1% of its GDP on health care – one of the lowest levels of spending on health care in South Asia.

    The Indonesian health care system is based on a community-based health care system focused on the provision of care through community health care centers and village health posts. However, more direct access is needed between trained healthcare providers and the community to ensure greater coverage of basic health care services by linking urban and rural systems.

    IHS has created innovative solutions to widen the reach of quality care in facility-based and community-based settings. Our efficient technologies target under-resourced populations, and integrate mHealth applications, electronic medical record systems and interactive SMS systems to enable quick and early case-detection and treatment of Tuberculosis and Multi-drug Resistant Tuberculosis.

    South Africa

    Technology to improve access to quality care

    South Africa has a two-pronged health care system: a large, under-resourced and strained public sector and a small, well-resourced private sector. While the public sector provides health care for 80% of the population, it is only supported by 30% of the country’s doctors.

    IHS has developed innovative technologies to reduce the disparity between South Africa’s public and private sectors and increase healthcare access in facility-based and community-based settings. Our teams have integrated mHealth applications, electronic medical record systems and linked interactive SMS systems to provide a holistic ecosystem of care. This integrated system has played a vital role in quick and early case-detection and treatment of Tuberculosis and HIV.

    Tajikistan

    Building a healthier future though transformative technology

    Tajikistan’s first years of independence from the Soviet Union were accompanied by an immense deterioration of the country’s health status through the rise of communicable diseases such as Tuberculosis. The country has one of the highest Tuberculosis prevalence rate of 382 per 100,000 individuals and incidence of 206 per 100,000 populations in the region. The World Health Organization estimates that there are as many as 14,000 Tuberculosis cases per year.

    IHS has worked with the National TB program to implement an electronic medical record system and a mHealth application that are better able to screen and monitor susceptible TB and MDR-TB patients. Our platform provides an innovative and impactful solution to quickly link patients to appropriate treatment and has successfully been customized to suit local training and capacity building of staff.
