Secure medical app that creates an advice and referral community for healthcare workers
UNDP Growth Stage Impact Ventures (GSIV) for SDGS, DRK Foundation
There's a lack of training and specialist advice for health workers and departments in marginalised communities. Referals to specialists are often time consuming both for patients and healthcare workers. Unecessary referrals can be common and waste precious human resources.
Vula connects healthcare departments and healthcare workers with a more accurate referral system app. They have worked with academic hospitals to ensure the right clinical information for each speciality area is captured in the app in custom referral forms, which has shown a reduction of unnecessary referrals by 31%. Teams can co-manage a call roster, handovers, and forward patients within a team, improving efficiency of operations.
Vula's goal is to improve healthcare for people living in rural, remote, and underserved areas. Ultimately we want patients to receive the right advice quickly and securely.
