We Need Experts!!
Without doubt Telemedicine is a veritable tool in transforming healthcare delivery in Nigeria. Telemedicine enables clients to access healthcare expertise/resources without the expert and the client needing to travel to enjoy this service. It has the capabilities to save time,money and space.
As part of our initiative to transform the Nigeria Healthcare space and improve the quality of care to Nigerians, irrespective of their location through information technology, Sabaoth Technologies Ltd have teamed up with Telemedicine and Ehealth In Nigeria (TEN), a non-governmental organization that shares a common focus and objective to provide telemedicine services in a sustainable manner to Nigerians.
We are currently putting final touches to the technical platform and we believe the time is set to build up the supply side of the equation: Finding Experts who are willing to devote their time and energy to help clients in Nigeria who critically need their service without the necessity of them travelling to meet the client or the client travelling to meet them (at least in the first instance). We would bridge the distance using our technology platform with APMIS at the core.
The services provision would include
1) Teleconsultation: This is a a clinical service session which can be done in real time (sysnchronous) or in a store and forward manner (asynchronous) wherein the client information is uploaded in a secure manner and you get to review and make your recommendation as required. Please note that this service includes both laboratory, radiology, pharmceutical, physiotherapy and other allied service as well as core medical consultation.
2) Tele-education service: There is a dearth of clinical expertise across all profession within the healthcare domain. Through this service, you teach a cohort of audience in a manner convenient to you. This again could be done in real time or in an asynchronous manner.
We believe this medium would provide opportunities for colleagues especially those in the diaspora who would like to contribute their quota in helping transform the healthcare indices of this country within the shortest possible time without the burden to physically travel to Nigeria.
We would be able to stem the tide of medical tourism in a significant manner as our services grows and become mainstream. This service would be offered in collaboration with various hospitals within the country as well as via direct patient enagement.
You would have the choice to decide whether you want to offer your service under a “paid for” arrangement or pro bono.
