More About Sana and Mobile Health

The Summer 2010 issue of AQ includes a case study on Sana, a team of MIT and Harvard School of Public Health students who have developed award-winning technology that enables mobile phones to capture and send medical data, even in areas with poor cellular coverage.

The platform allows rural practitioners to connect in real time with trained experts for diagnostic and treatment assistance, and after successful projects in Bangalore, India, they are getting ready to launch an eHealth training program in Monterrey, Mexico, next January.

Since the Summer issue went to press, Sana has expanded its work in several countries, including Brazil, where  Sana Brazil was launched in partnership with the Universidade Federal de São Paulo and the National Telecommunications Institute to design and deploy a system to help community health workers provide comprehensive eye examinations.
