mHealthcare Solutions have developed a range of smartphone based applications to extend quality healthcare beyond the capital cities of developing world countries. This is a short video about the diabetes screening pilot programme we undertook in Dhaka, Bangladesh. The screening pilot provided community healthcare workers with a smartphone device and digital glucometer so that they were able to screen for diabetes and monitor patient progress and treatments. The blood sugar readings are taken using the glucometer which is connected to the smartphone or tablet by USB or bluetooth. A structured, led questionnaire then ensures that data about the patient's wellbeing is captured, along with other measurements such as temperature. These results are then transmitted over 3G or Wifi to a central tele-healtcare centre in Dhaka, manned by qualified nurses and doctors. Here the results are analysed and a diagnosis or prognosis is made and communicated back to the healthcare worker via their smartphone. This could include diagnosis, nutritional advice, treatment recommendations, presecriptions or referal to a clinic for further tests. The first phase of the pilot is complete, involving 200 patients across the city. We're now working on plans for a major roll out across the country.
This is an initial concept demonstration of the UX for the accessible version of the SmartHealth app, in this instance for Android devices. The full version of the app contains more features. The accessible version is designed for use by the elderly or infirm and focusses on gathering basic healthcare information using as few steps as possible, using large visible buttons and optional voice read out of instructions an user actions.

This is a short demonstration of the Smart Health concept from Appdragon and mHealthcare Solutions. It shows how easy it can be to use Smart Health to allow patients to take their own medical tests at home and transmit the data to a health care centre for analysis.
A proof of concept demonstrator to show how a Beam ECG Mobil device can be connected to the Appdragon SmartHealth app on iOS or Android to allow vital signs information to be transmitted to a remote health care provider via a patient's phone or tablet.
This is a brief demo of the SmartHealth tele care app running on an Apple iPhone 5 and uploading a patient's Blood Oxygen level in real time via Bluetooth BLE. The SPO2 level can then be sent in real time to the remote clinic or hospital along with a multitude of other readings such as blood glucose, blood pressure, pulse rate, peak flow as well as ECG readings.
With SmartHealth from Appdragon, self care and management of chronic diseases or post-operative patients is a reality.
