OIGM just launched a NEW program in Haiti. The program will SOON be in the DOMINICAN REPUBLIC.
Name of Program: OIGM TECHNO-ALPHA.
Why this program? In developing countries, the technology system is the greatest channels to communicate with the world, to provide medical reports, to transfer prescriptions to pharmacy centers, to upload patients' medical reports to medical facilities; instead of a using a paper referral. With this new program, we will have general access to patients' medical records, general access to students reports, etc..
95% of families in developing countries have at least one computer and internet access in their homes, in schools, and in the libraries to do homework, built a software, create a blog or website, voice over IP, watch global news, etc. However, Haiti and her neighbor country are far behind most countries in this world of technology. In Haiti and Dominican Republic, most of the government offices are still using the typewriter machines to type a legal document. With that said, those countries (such as Haiti and Dominican Republic) need a large techno support in order to reach the world standard.
For this reason, OIGM has initiated a jump start program: OIGM TECHNO-ALPHA.
OIGM TECHNO-ALPHA’s goal is to teach generations in Haiti and Dominican Republic, starting with doctors, nurses, teachers, hospital personnel, pharmacists, students, social workers, etc., on how to use a computer and the internet system. Also, we want to teach them on how to create a chart system for patients.
Imagine: Ms. Mary has a doctor visit today, her doctor prescribes her a list of medications for her to take. She starts taking the medication; but, suddenly, something else happens to her and she has to see another doctor in another facility. Because there is a lack of medical information from the first doctor, the second doctor has Mary taking the same medication over again. What happens now, instead of helping her we are creating a health conflict in her life.
To make this program possible, and continue to save lives, OIGM is encouraging friends, partners, and organizations of all kind to donate laptops, iPads, and or Tablets, things they are no longer using, to OIGM. What may be useless to some will be priceless to others.
