The provision of Health services in developing countries is hampered by various challenges. One area that has not been fully ventured into is formulating a holistic way to help improve health of people by enabling use of mobile technologies to get health services on the go. In general, Patients using current information systems face the problem of not accessing medical services outside the hospital premises. These problems can be solved by using a mobile application that is linked with current and any possible future hospital information system. The solution consists of an application that allows patients to first record their health records and keep track of their general health changes in real-time, enabling patients to get medical assistance by having direct communication with their respective doctor(s) and accessing public health and emergency data on the go. This way, health problems are solved fast, efficiently and at any time of the day.
