Equatel Health™. Connecting rural communities with public healthcare solutions.

Billions of people around the world still have no access to health education. At Equatel Health, we are trying to change that. Healthcare should be a human right, not a privilege depending on where you live. For the past two years we have been spearheading the e-health sector, providing remote management and healthcare solutions with our EHR platform.

 

What is Equatel Health?

Equatel Health is a centralized e-health management system. As an EHR platform, health ministries and NGO health programs can use it to input and organize data and to track statistics. Doctors can use it to diagnose and treat patients remotely. Patients can use it to access immediate medical care, prescriptions, health alerts and education.

 

How do patients access Equatel Health?

Patients use our android-based device, Equatel Touch. Our public access kiosks are installed in convenient locations throughout the rural setting. Patients access health services by inserting their personal SIM card or smart card. The card ensures a secure and personalised user experience.
