Landmark Information Group has completed the development of a new mobile telemedicine application for the Virtual Doctors charity. The app will transform the way rural health centres in Zambia access vital advice, diagnosis and treatment support from a pool of qualified UK doctors, in order to deliver vital patient care to people located in some of the poorest parts of Africa. Virtual Doctors connects African health clinicians with qualified doctors and specialists in the UK, who donate their time for free to offer diagnosis and treatment advice to some of the world’s poorest communities. Developed free of charge by seven members of the Landmark team, in approximately 100 days, the new custom-built VDrs mobile application is used on a Tablet PC and makes it simple for Clinical Officers to be able to share patient data with the pool of doctors.
