Firefighters, doctors, hospital staff and emergency doctors are confronted daily with the victims of illness, accidents or falls without having immediate access to their medical file, which can be serious when it comes to helping people whose medical history is unknown in case of emergency. The following problems are thus resolved:
1- Providing care and medical follow-up to patients with serious injuries
2- Lack of critical data on disease and illness
3- Difficulty of identifying and prioritizing the causes of mortality, diseases and other illnesses mainly in women
4- Difficulty of establishing an effective and efficient health policy.
National health systems have great difficulty in managing clinical records. Thus, analyzes, diagnoses, interventions and the entire clinical history of a patient would be within the reach of all physicians, anywhere and anytime.
This would: - collect and retrieve data more efficiently than today's tools; - to facilitate the work of health professionals, while improving patient care; - speed up diagnosis with the additional information they provide; - Maintain continuous medical surveillance.
Patient monitoring and medical data - E-health and connected devices
