AlertClinic launch August 31st, 2017 is a mobile app that will help users get alert on current disease in a particular area in Lagos. The app will also provide ways to prevent and deal with the disease. AlertClinic is a communication and notification system designed with algorithms around information flow and the persuasion of critical behaviours and choices.
The primary purpose of the app is to tackle Malaria, Lassa fever, Diarrheal Diseases and Polio in Lagos. The mobile app was developed by a collective effort of the Lagos State Ministry of Health and the Primary Healthcare Board and EpidAlert. AlertClinic app hopes to reduce the burden of these diseases in various communities in Lagos.
Notification will rise for the notifiable diseases and the public health response time will drop when threats are identified; leaving communities healthier and more resilient, says Ebola Alert.
The product which was launched in Yaba, will first be made available in Lagos Mainland. The reason is that Lagos Mainland is the hub of tech innovations and have the largest number of youths.
Lagos Mainland environs includes University of Lagos and Yaba College of Technology, a large youth population, communities such as Makoko, Ebute Metta, military cantonments and police barracks, health and research institutions such as Nigeria Institute of Medical Research, the NCDC’s Central Public Health Laboratory and most importantly the Lagos State Primary Healthcare Board and Infectious Disease Hospital.
