New mHealth Case Study: Sana Mobile

Posted by MohiniBhavsar on Sep 17, 2010

Recently, spoke to the Sana Mobile team to understand how the Android-based m-health application is being used in India. The Sana application, developed at MIT's Next Lab by students and volunteers, seeks to facilitate remote consultation between specialists, often in urban centers, and community health workers working in remote low-resource settings.

Instant remote consultation for complicated cases requiring specialist input helps bring care to patients, who would otherwise have limited access to tertiary care. Sana is developed on the Android platform, enabling users to integrate voice recordings, video and high resolution images in the diagnostic process.

Read our case study that describes the mobile tool and the pilot test in Bangalore where Sana was used to screen the risk of oral cancers.
