Transforming RDTs for Precision Public Health

Over the past four years, we applied an investment from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to establish open guidelines for the hardware of rapid diagnostic tests, the software that interprets them, and the health information systems that use these test results to better guide care. We recently published our findings in JMIR Biomedical Engineering.

Why the WHO SMART Guidelines and FHIR are necessary for universal health access

Half of the world’s population is unable to obtain essential health services or the typical healthcare services offered in large facilities. The rise of community health workers and community health service programs have been transformative, but they are at the limits of their ability to improve outcomes.

Eight Reasons Why FHIR is Important for Global Health

FHIR is a data standard evolved from HL7, which pioneered the field of health data exchange. Importantly, since its introduction a decade ago, it has become the globally accepted standard describing how to represent and exchange health data.

Closing immunization gaps by integrating OpenSRP and Rapidpro

In its effort to reduce child mortality, Zambia has wholeheartedly embraced digital health. However, in the race to close immunization gaps, the country adopted two health systems that work independently: Rapid Pro at the community level and OpenSRP at health facilities. This disconnect created conditions for data fragmentation, inaccurate reporting, and duplicated efforts.

Powering interoperability with a FHIR to DHIS2 adapter

The HL7 FHIR standard is emerging as an integral solution to the much discussed interoperability challenges in global health. However, there are many operational platforms that use proprietary formats and there is a large quantity of data “locked” in those proprietary formats. As new projects go live at scale we are building tools to 1) unlock

Gratitude for a great Symposium on Open Guidelines for RDTs 2022

What would the world look like if everyone had access to Rapid Diagnostic Tests for Covid-19, Malaria, and other communicable diseases, that could be read and easily understood on a smartphone, and that were used as soon as the first person in your community showed symptoms?

Join us for a virtual Symposium on Open Guidelines for RDTs

What if the next time you opened any rapid diagnostic test (RDT) from any manufacturer for any condition, you can scan it with a WHO-approved and freely available smartphone app that would instantly recognize the RDT, authenticate it, support step-by-step instructions, read it with optimal sensitivity, interpret results based on the patient’s symptoms, medical record,
