Maternal and neonatal mortality remains high in Cameroon and many parts of the world. This situation is explained, in part, by factors like delays in diagnosis and management of obstetrical emergencies, limited access to standard of care services and qualified healthcare personnel as well as malpractice. Concerted action from a wide variety of stakeholders is required, to bringimprovements on a public health scale. The current role and potential of digital health services to improve public health service delivery is also being recognized and digital innovation hubs are springing up and rising up to this challenge. This webinar will engage experts in the health and digital development industries to raise a discussion around the actual and foreseen role of technology to drive innovative problem solving in healthcare in general and as related to obstetrical emergencies in particular.
The main objective will be to understand the potential of digital health services to improve the outcome of obstetrical emergencies.
- Discuss models to improve access to information for pregnant women and healthcare providers through digital health services.
- Review the presence and impact of digital health tools in the domain on maternal and child health services.
- Create platforms to bring digital service developers and policy makers for uptake of digital health services for maternal and child care
