We are committed to transforming global access to primary health care by providing low-cost, high-impact mobile medical facilities. Our medical clinics, created in shipping containers, create an effective platform for health care workers to deliver basic medical and life-saving service in underserved areas. Our fully functional, highly flexible clinics can be used in many different applications and platforms, such as diagnosis and treatment of infectious and non-communicable diseases, disaster relief, and health education.
Our vision is based on a biblical value ...And departing, they went about from village to village, preaching the Gospel and restoring the afflicted to health everywhere ~Luke 9:6. Our mission is to transform primary health care globally by providing health care workers with an effective, low-cost equipment platform from which to deliver basic medical services: diagnosis and treatment of infectious and non-communicable diseases, disaster relief, and health education.
Delivery of Primary Health Care
Our mobile medical clinics provide the ability to rapidly place a health care facility nearly anywhere. They can be used for disaster relief, as a temporary solution while a brick and mortar building is constructed, or as a permanent health care facility.
Electronic Health Information Exchange
Advancements in technology such as wireless communications and electronic medical records provide opportunities for these containers to also become a bidirectional link for health data.
The utilization of mobile technology is on the rise. Over 80% of the population in sub-Saharan Africa has cellular phone coverage, and mobile phone subscriptions have increase 49% annually between 2002 and 2007, as compared with 17% per year in Europe (indicated by the Center for Global Development).
With the creation of a medical ID card that carries a unique patient identifier, transmission of patient health information is made more reliable and can assist national and international health organizations (like the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) in population health and epidemiological studies.
Physicians and other health care professionals can also instantly communicate and transmit data to colleagues of a certain specialty to obtain consultative diagnosis and treatment methods, rapidly increasing the delivery of effective treatment.
This collaboration can happen from the container to a diagnostic center in the next city, a regional teaching hospital, a national health ministry, a research hospital anywhere in the world, and a global health initiative.
The team at Primary Mobile Med International is made up of professionals with backgrounds in commercial real estate development, design and engineering, information technology, medicine, product development, and legal council.
