Over at 3G Doctor a new initiative has been announced which aims to create the world’s first “Mobile First” Public Healthcare System. From 3G Doctor:
The program will:
- Create personal health records for the Albanian population based on the model developed by 3G Doctor and their partners in the UK and Ireland
- Provide a secure portal accessible by Albanian mobile subscribers that will support citizen engagement with personal health records, access to patient communities and healthcare Information resources.
- Introduce an informed remote voice and video consulting service (similar to the private 3G Video Mobile service developed by 3G Doctor) to the Albanian public via collaboration with selected public health centers.
The collaboration effort is aiming to submit a partnership application for European Union funding. Current partners in this effort include 3G Doctor, Albanian Ministry of Health and Public Partners, Instant Medical History UK, and IVeH.
To learn more, or to find out how you/your organization can become a partner in this effort, reference the contact information on the 3G Doctor announcement. There is a deadline of making your request known for participation by January 12, 2011, so don’t wait on this effort.
