You welcome Isaac Jumba  and forgive me for late reply. What we noted from our pilot is that for the hospital they actually never used the triage module. They even requested that we make it optional . 3 modules were well appreciated which were the registry module, clinical module and the pharmacy module.
From the patients that we had a chance to interact with they requested to have their own application and for the system to include a referral module. For the patients application there were few things that we noted we could work on as we build it.
1. We could make it possible for the patients to do advance booking, so as to save on time used at the queue.
2. For the cases where the hospital lacked some of the prescribed drugs we could add chemists into the system where the patients could see at how much the drugs were being offered, after which they could purchase their drugs from the app.
3. Another request was to make it possible for the patients on their app to view hospitals near them, with the kind of services and cost being offered in those hospitals.

With the help of community health workers especially in Kibera, we are estimating to reach 100,000 people within the first year of which the numbers could be more.

Hi Isaac Jumba 
Hope you doing well sorry for the late reply , We have made necessary changes of the idea and we hope right now it is more clear, hope to get your view and guidance .
We currently finishing on the development. What is discussed above is just but a module we have added to our system to address the immunization problem. We currently working on partnering with a few hospitals to test our systems before rolling it out to government hospitals and other hospitals. We currently have two local hospitals that have agreed to work with us. We are hoping by the end of June to have completed the testing phase and the new community health worker module.
Thank you in advance hoping to hear from you.
