Genesis – Integrated Health Solutions, Systems and Knowledge Transfer
At eWWG, we have a team of international health experts, specialised in creating strategies, frameworks and integrated healthcare solutions in the field of healthcare delivery using technology, information systems and knowledge transfer.
Our team is comprised of regular contributors and pioneers in the fields of Medical Informatics, eHealth, Telemedicine, Research and Development for Online-advice, Data-intensive Predictive Medicine, Web-based Behavioral support and Integrated Healthcare Services.
We also have the expertise and capabilities to provide a wide variety of consultancy services to both the public and private healthcare providers. For example, eWWG has developed an innovative approache to reduce maternal and infant mortality rates (MDGs 4 and 5), incorporating ICTs and mobile phones, thereby creating a ‘safety net’ for rural communities. The concept was endorsedby the department of Making Pregnancy Safer, at the WHO, and have been piloted in India. We have also created multiple delivery mechanisms for knowledge transfer and awareness among public sector workers and communities. Furthermore, eWWG has developed the concept and implemented a unique multi-stakeholder, multi-sector telemedicine center in collaboration with Jinnah Post Graduate Medical Centre, in Sindh, Pakistan. The concept was both innovative and practical, based on local community needs and in line with their socio-cultural settings.
eWWG has also designed and developed a multidimensional, ICT-enabled school health initiative that utilizes activity-based learning and is focused on ‘preventing avoidable deaths’ from infectious and non-communicable diseases. This has been endorsed by UNICEF, UNESCO and the WHO. The model incorporates four key elements: health, hygiene, nutrition and the environment, localised to each community and in line with the social and cultural context. eWWG has spearheaded the deployment of integrated ‘smart’ home health monitoring systems that employ cloud computing to securely link the home, hospital and family, with a vulnerable or elderly person. This provides real-time health data to be transmitted via multiple mobile devices and sensors to healthcare providers and family. This solution uniquely addresses the challenges that families and governments are facing with limited resources to provide the care that is needed by an aging population.
Another area of growing concern for governments and societies, in which eWWG has been extensively engaged is addressing the health challenges unique to the digital society lifestyle, particularly those facing the young, including issues of obesity, mental disorders and child safety online.
eWWG has also developed the concept of Assistive Technology Centres (ATC) – a first-of-its-kind innovation, intended to apply cutting edge technologies to the challenges of people with special needs to ensure their inclusion in society. The ATC is envisioned as a hands-on hub of applied technology and innovation that produces assistive technology solutions for its community and region.
