We understand community needs, THEN design services to improve access, COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT and healthcare quality.
By creating insight about the needs of communities that currently cannot access healthcare, we can then work with local government to provide data-driven service design, community engagement and support; integrating private sector when required to enable a complete, high quality and patient-centric service.
From research, to technology development, to healthcare service delivery. Regardless of the project type, everything we do supports underserved groups access essential healthcare services.
Delivering healthcare everywhere.
Working with government, technology suppliers, healthcare providers, professional services companies, insurers and the pharmaceutical industry we are looking to help underserved regions in the Philippines access a complete healthcare service.
We are empowering local government with our services, and connecting those most in need through innovative public-private partnerships. This is our pioneer market that continues to grow.
Sustainable financing is key for healthcare systems, and limiting out-of-pocket expenses is essential. We are creating an integrated finance model, where existing public-financed healthcare services can be 'topped up' with private, community-led, group health insurance policies based on wholesale-priced pharmaceutical products.
By working differently with new partners, we are creating a multi-payer financing model for the poorest sectors of society.
Making safe decisions
Research-led patient safety.
Engaging in digital service models can incur patient safety risk: for people who have accessed healthcare through traditional channels (or not accessed healthcare at all), will they make safe decisions when using digital for the first time?
We ran a research-led project to disseminate various types of healthcare content to a representative sample group, gathering feedback, and conducting scenario-based case studies to see if safe decisions are made.
Enabling patient choice.
Coordinating care across multiple healthcare providers is an issue all over the world. Multiple technology systems and disparate processes will always lead to an organisation-focussed view of a patient's care. But how can this be changed?
We are working with a leading home care charity to build a new platform to solve this problem. By using a well-designed, simple and intuitive digital platform we are enhancing communication, patient-led collaboration and information sharing in a community care setting, ensuring patient experience is maximised and with cost savings too.
Expanding our reach.
Following our work in the Philippines, Allied World Healthcare has launched in Cambodia. We plan to take the same community-led approach to support communities and local government in Siem Reap province, and connect communities to local services through Curis; working alongside a local charity.
To do this, we have translated all our technology, materials and other documents; as well as sourced local partners, communities to work with and funding. Our service delivery will launch to our first communities in October 2018 (if we are optimistic, maybe even in September!)
Going the extra mile
Healthcare services don't reach far enough into poor communities. Fact.
We ran a research project to understand healthcare needs and local 'facility mapping' to define the core gaps in healthcare access.
Now, working with the local government, supply chain partners and large pharmaceutical companies we are looking to bulk-buy and distribute products back to the communities; creating a digital-led supply chain stretching the last mile. These products aren't free, but are very affordable and fill the gaps in existing government health support.
Digital health platforms designed for emerging markets
We've worked with some of the world's best technology organisations to build platforms designed for low-bandwidth, basic infrastructure and lower familiarity with digital services.
Health Access and Support
Connecting rural communities.
Our core platform, Curis, provides information, education, connection to health workers, a health record, and a range of other supporting services; fully offline on low-spec devices.
Health Worker Education
Strengthening health systems.
MediConnect provides information, education and training for health workers, and collaboration tools such as forums and group chat to support on-the-ground decision making.
Marketplace and Care Planning
Product ordering and payments.
A marketplace of government, non-profit and private sector services made available to our communities through our team of Access Managers and local partners.

UNDERSTANDING OUR APPROACH
This is a new approach to get the very basics right. Here are some quick ways to understand it through answering the main six questions we get asked.
How does it work?
And is it rocket science?
It's simple. We've built technology platforms with a range of global partners, and use this digital platform to help everyday, existing community members and facilities become access points for healthcare services.
We train local community members to support their local community access healthcare services, information and other services - connecting them to government facilities and a range of partner products.
What do partners get?
Why do people want to join you?
We believe in a fairer world, and we aren't alone. Our partner benefits vary: sometimes it's an individual who can put something great on their CV, and sometimes it's a global charity who can get better information about healthcare needs in rural areas to coordinate a new vaccines programme. Sometimes it's small, sometimes it's big. Ultimately, we look to help a range of organisations deliver services to hard-to-reach communities, and help individuals give back to global society.
So, who funds you...?
...when the core services are free?
We embed our services in areas that have no traditional healthcare. We gather information, and share this with a range of partners to help them coordinate their services, and better serve those most in need. We are powered by digital health, that leads to transformational data and insight.
We conduct consulting activities based on our knowledge to provide insight to our partners; from government, to space agencies, to global charities and private sector.
Rural health tech?!
How does that even work?!
Sure, sounds a bit crazy. We have had to try this three times to get it right! Failure is always an option.
Our apps work offline, with periodic sync. We have an Implementation team that goes out to our partner communities and trains our Access Managers. They go to get signal about once a week to sync data, or they can 'peer-to-peer' sync between devices to ensure core application data is shared. And, it's all fully encrypted and secure.
What are your plans?
We work in South East Asia and use our offline-first apps to connect rural populations to basic health support and partner services.
We will continue to grow our network and offer more products at affordable, discounted rates. We plan to scale throughout Asia and use our data and insight to define what communities need most, and then be dynamic and reactive to design and deploy new support services and grow further.
What do you need?
And how can I get involved?
We are always looking for new partners. The core areas we need support in are technology, clinical services, healthcare products and services (treatments, medical technology, health insurance), government and non-profit partners and a whole lot more!
