A SUPER APP OFFERS TIMELY INNOVATION FOR DEVALUED HEALTH CARE AND DISEASE SURVEILLANCE

A SUPER APP OFFERS TIMELY INNOVATION FOR DEVALUED HEALTH CARE AND DISEASE SURVEILLANCE

The rapid increase in health care cost affects billions of lives every day.

In some countries, especially in the underdeveloped nations of the world, ailing citizens would rather opt for alternative remedies rather than seek for professional medication from hospitals simply due to expensive costs.

A report from WHO stated that,   “The most commonly reported reasons for using traditional and complementary/alternative medicine are that it is more affordable, more closely corresponds to the patient’s ideology, and is less paternalistic than allopathic medicine. Regardless of why an individual uses it, traditional and complementary/alternative medicine provides an important health care service to persons both with and without geographic or financial access to allopathic medicine.”

Traditional medication often leads to homeopathy and natural healing but what if a simple disease leads to a contagious outbreak since no professional public health monitoring is accessible while the patient is at home or simply because of merely hesitating modern medicine?

When isolated medical cases turn out to be contagious to a much bigger population, how late is too late in determining the source and prevention? Resorting to technology could be a great idea.

A disease tracking feature in a mobile application is easily made available to smartphone users. PeN super app added the PULSE Virus Tracker feature to simply aid in disease surveillance and strengthens public health monitoring.

Through the app, disease reporting and surveillance can be done as easy as posting updates on other social media sites.

Traditional medicine is an unbendable belief that is already around since the beginning of civilization. The next important thing that needs to be addressed is how to integrate the traditional practice to modern medicine so it doesn’t compromise public health.

Anyone can contribute by easily accessing the PeN application even on remote locations.

“An analysis of media reports and recent studies in West Africa reveals notable resistance against prescribed scientific ways of combating the transmission of Ebola in some affected communities”, according to a study of Angellar Manguvo and Benford Mafuvadze.

Making hospitals more appealing by having cutting edge technology and highly professional medical attendants won’t seem to be enough reason to debunk traditional practices. Well maybe, unless the price tag changes and becomes more affordable but still not entirely.

Raising awareness and immediately assisting in cutting the source of possible outbreaks is feasible. Making use of tools, like PeN, that show recent contagious diseases is already helpful.

Connect For Free

We live in a mobile world. A world where we are constantly on the move, whether flying to an exotic destination or going to work and while on the move we have the need and the urge to communicate. In the good old past we communicate to ones beside us, in a bus, in a plane or standing in queue. In today’s world we communicate to friends from all over the world, 10,000 kilometers away and yet ignore the ones beside us… This world is truly an amazing place….

That November issue of Newsweek sometime early 2000 is one of the covers that struck on my mind. The headline says “Books aren’t dead. (They’re just going digital).

How could someone not forget a headline such that?
