Information Chain Management System (ICMS) for Low- and Middle-Income Countries
T.J. Corcoran of Hemalytics LLC in the U.S. will create a platform incorporating a web portal and smartphone application to track patients and their samples during diagnostic testing in low-resource settings to ensure they receive the results, and in a timely manner. They will develop a suite of mobile health tools for storing encrypted patient and sample data, capturing test results in the laboratory, and notifying patients and health workers of the results. They will test their platform using patients, laboratories, and administrators located in different cities in the U.S. This approach will help interconnect patients, health workers, and diagnostic laboratories, and thereby improve disease management.
