Implementing M-health across Southeast Asia

Primary Author: Swam Saung Oo

The majority of rural populations lack basic health knowledge and have limited access to adequate healthcare facilities in time in Southeast
Asia. Limited access to healthcare facilities has a negative impact on their quality of life owing to unmet health needs, delay in receiving
appropriate care, lack of preventive services, and hospitalisations that could have been prevented.
We propose “ M-health” (healthcare provision through mobile devices) that saves time, energy and cost to fulfil their health needs by
overcoming geographical boundaries. Health-related information and expertise become accessible virtually anywhere at any time. Better
healthcare quality, patient outcome, patient-healthcare provider partnerships and consumer engagement are all expected to contribute to meeting
the stakeholders’ needs.
