Hikma Health: Year of Migrant HealthDeadline: October 1, 2021
Hikma Health partners with clinical organizations around the world providing free healthcare to thousands of refugees, migrants, and low-income patients. It creates custom health data systems that are designed to improve patient outcomes. The Hikma Health system is an electronic health record (EHR) system that allows healthcare workers to collect and access vital patient information through a mobile application, when working within the clinic and when conducting patient home visits. The Hikma Health system works offline and syncs data securely to a cloud-based server when network connectivity is available. Clinics use the Hikma Health system in order to improve patient care, save clinicians time, improve organizational efficiency, and reduce the administrative burden and ecological waste of managing paper records.
The Year of Migrant Health grant opportunity aims to provide funding to clinics and organizations to implement an electronic health record system (EHR). Clinics and organizations operating mobile or stationary clinics which provide care in resource-limited areas to vulnerable populations, and that are looking to improve their operational efficiency and patient care through the use of an EHR are encouraged to apply.
