Launch of HMP app and press conference
Our application keeps everything in one place by combining on-line and off-line electronic medical records (EMR).
We have integrated reminders to improve the surveillance of neonatal diseases, immunization utilization, birth defects and early detection of developmental delay.
Our patient identification system helps to ensure long term monitoring of pediatric health and improves efficacy and efficiency of treatment at a low cost.
The setup and messaging process is a simple, 3-step solution.
In Azeez Butali’s native country of Nigeria, approximately 2,300 children under 5 years old die each day from preventable diseases and circumstances, totaling 840,000 deaths per year.
The leading cause is a lack of communication between mothers and doctors. With a ratio of one doctor to more than 2,000 children, communication can be overwhelming, and children rarely receive the checkups, routine immunizations, or follow-up visits after sickness or injury that would help them thrive.
IOWA CITY, Iowa (CBS2/FOX28) — Twenty three hundred.
That’s how many kids under the age of five die everyday in Dr. Azeez Butali’s motherland of Nigeria. Butali currently works as an assistant professor at the University of Iowa’s College of Dentistry.
On March 3rd we supported World Birth Defects Day. Our friends in Nigeria helped to support the cause as well and wore t-shirts in honor. We hope that everyone is more aware of the problems that we face in this world such as birth defects so that we can work together to create solutions.
