Deploy Medic Mobile
Medic Mobile designs, delivers, and supports software for health workers providing care in the hardest-to-reach communities. We envision a world where community health workers are equipped and supported as they provide care for their neighbors. Medic Mobile and our partners have proven that high-quality care can be delivered through integrated, community-based health systems. We now have an unprecedented opportunity to rapidly scale up this approach and its impact.
In order to achieve scale and reach, Medic Mobile supports three types of partnerships with health care delivery organizations and health systems.
We provide Standard partners with an easy-to-deploy version of the software that comes with free remote-support for organizations and clinics. The Standard partnership package is our most accessible option for deploying Medic Mobile, enabling you to deliver tried-and-tested mobile health use cases with minimal support. Over the years, we’ve refined specific workflows to support health workers and community health systems. We package high-impact, replicable workflows and implementation resources into our Standard option.
As a Standard partner, you will have access to Medic Mobile’s web app, easy-to-use SMS or Medic Collect forms, a messaging gateway, step-by-step implementation guides, training materials, and user materials. We also provide prompt, remote support from our team and an invitation to a community of practitioners. Medic Mobile asks that partners cover the other direct costs for their deployment, including hardware, SMS bundles, and mobile data bundles. Partners can deploy Medic Mobile for antenatal care, postnatal care, and childhood immunization coordination.
Medic Mobile Standard Deployment
"We set up our app to support antenatal care, postnatal care and immunization programs out-of-the-box in a standard package. Our goal is to help community health workers and facility staff to work together and coordinate care for pregnant woman and children."
Medic Mobile works alongside model-building partners to deploy the full Medic Mobile toolkit, embed technology into new models of care, and advance R&D through human-centered design and research.
Medic Mobile’s open-source toolkit serves as the go-to software for community health, helping health workers provide doorstep care in the hardest to reach communities. Community health workers rely on the Android app and full toolkit to coordinate safe pregnancies, ensure complete vaccinations for children, treat and refer quickly for childhood illnesses, screen and deliver supplements for maternal and child malnutrition, serve as early reporters for infectious disease outbreaks, decide which families and communities to visit, and coordinate with managers and clinical care teams. Managers can monitor and coordinate healthcare with the web app and display impact data in real-time with visual analytical dashboards

National health systems partners
Medic Mobile also supports scale-ups within national health systems, with a focus on government leadership and ownership. In 2018, we aim to support scale-ups of government-led systems with the Ministry of Health in Kenya, Ministry of Health in Nepal, Ministry of Health in Uganda, and implementing partners in each country. We also aim to deploy with one additional national-scale partner, and we continue to develop plans to support additional national systems.
