A Digital Health Solution for pediatric surgery to improve access to care for indigent children and reduce inequalities
Are you an NGO/ medical facility in the field of pediatric surgery?
Access to care is highly dependent on where you were born and where you are, with profound inequalities between countries.
The 2015 Lancet Commission report demonstrated the huge gaps in surgical care that currently exist around the world, with 5 billion people, including thousands of children, lacking access to safe and affordable surgical and anesthesia care.
Enable indigent patients to have an active role in their medical care through direct access to qualified health care providers.
For 27 years, Children Action has been implementing surgical programs to provide access to relevant and quality care for children aged 0 to 18, particularly in orthopedics, urology, cardiology and burns. To date, more than 350 missions have been organized in Bangladesh, Cameroon, Vietnam and Myanmar, bringing together medical experts of the highest level.
We decided to develop BetterAccess2care - BA2C, a patient-centric Digital Health Solution. BA2C aims to enable the family of a sick child, in a simple and secure way, to provide specific medical information and describe their child's symptoms and pathologies in order to review a report from a specialist and be referred, when possible, to local care.
BA2C aims to be a global reference platform in the field of pediatric surgery, focused on new technologies and on the development of a committed network of health professionals.
Thanks to the growing connectivity in emerging countries, BA2C proposes new processes of care allowing indigent patients to be actors of their health with direct access to competent caregivers.
