Inadequate personal and social data collection and storage contributes significantly to poor health and social outcomes in many developing countries. Of particular importance are the need to store health and medical records for members of nomadic communities, many of whom are illiterate, and the collection of reliable information about population, health and environmental variables.
The large-scale, distributed Health Information eXchange (HIX) uses smart cards, hand held devices, online connectivity platforms and database structures to gather and store individual health information as well as community data relating to migration patterns, water quality and food production. In this way the entire data of an individual is captured in one location. With ‘large data’ mining techniques, trends and outcomes are used to develop effective public health policies. In this way governments (local, state or federal) can launch targeted financial assistance programs to stimulate economic activity and relevant health initiatives within a local community.
The HIX system achieves positive health, environmental and social impacts. This process provides for a more portable and more accessible Health Record system.
A key feature of the HIX system is that it involves the establishment of ongoing relationships involving members of the local communities, specialists with expertise in health care, community development and public health education and practice, and consultants in relevant fields of knowledge and experience. HIX builds an integrated, community based mutual assistance program in health care and prevention.
The HIX system will radically transform the country’s healthcare sector and save lives by providing early identification of diseases, preventable medication error, tracking treatment plans, and by providing a health knowledge base down to the local community level.
Engaging local Government, Non-Government Agencies and nonprofit entities helps provide critical support to develop such a health records database system at the local, regional and national level.
