Intelesense Technologies, along with the Telemedicine and Advanced Technology Research Center (TATRC) of the US Army Medical Research and Materiel Command (MRMC), the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and other organizations under the President's Emergency Program for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) is working to support public health monitoring in Ethiopia.
This project involves transmitting of public health and clinical information from 126 outlying clinics (20-50km distant) to 5 corresponding hospitals throughout Ethiopia. As part of a large-scale antiretroviral (ARV) therapy study, patients receiving the treatment need to be regularly monitored in clinic and their information needs to be collected, reviewed, and analyzed at the major hospitals. In addition, sufficient inventory of ARV drugs must be maintained at these remote clinics for the therapy to be effective and to prevent any possible drug resistance. The goal is to to provide a robust wireless infrastructure where there currently is none (no cellular/ telecommunications, no reliable power).
