There's so much more that health is missing through these few years of development.

So much more can be done through #communication and #data mining.

What exactly is drawing health back when other discipline have skyrocketed their fields in tech?

While Physicians, Nurses, Pharmacies and other health professionals need to do more through accumulating capabilities outside the core health discipline to take courses starting with maybe critical thinking or design thinking. Learn tech skills in analytics etc.

Preventive health can be finally the major health market when predictive analytics is capitalized on.

However, we still need a deep EHR system to gather enough data. These data are everywhere but putting them in a place is important for growth.

How deep do we have EHR implemented in African hospitals?

While currently taking a research on 2 tertiary hospitals in Nigeria, I feel there would be a lower ranking system to identify the state of health data storage is done in Africa.

We do not need new EHR springing up. We need each of these hospitals to identify the benefits of data safekeeping and how much burden they would relieve themselves, through the admin processes, drug reconciliation, health care accountability etc.
There's also need for harnessing local means to make healthcare accessible for all through deep communication especially to those who need it most, correct false health information, localize health such that access to healthcare is at patients finger tips.

My team would launch the "My Health Booklet" today, correcting the false health beliefs with pictures and infographics. Our thought is that these pictures would be understood better by the under-served than words.

We want an easier means of communication.

We also tried to touch other aspects of health like suicide, how to respond to rape, how to respond to emergencies etc.

We believe much more can be done when those who are in dire need of health know what next to do.
There's need for the Nigerian government to look for the best way to improve specialty for physicians, better paid jobs and cheaper healthcare for its citizens.

A template that can be worked on is how many Indian hospitals function, focus on specialization...

Improve PHCs since they are closer to the patients and increase training for the staffs to manage care beyond the basics so that less burden is placed on Tertiary institutions through referrals.

#HealthForAll #WHD2019
Last lastly. Nurses training should include deeper clinical skills. They spend a large part of their lives understanding and working on patients improvement psychologically, physiologically, spiritually etc.

But are limited in taking up some duties.

Much more can be done in health.

Tech developers should partner more with health workers than individually identifying a problem and hoping to solve them alone.

Partnering with health workers would make the transitioning smooth.

#WorldHealthDay #WHD2019 @WHO
We would be launching this within the week.
