iThemba Life solution for COVID-19 is intended to supplement current result return infrastructures by delivering COVID-19 test results directly to your smartphone in just a matter of days, as well as providing clear and easy to understand next steps of action based on the country public health guidelines.
The iThemba Life implementation tool enables healthcare providers in the laboratory to perform back-end data operations that allow them to run program implementation for the iThemba Life solution. The implementation tool provides authenticated real-time remote access to the system for data operations, data fixes and reviewing result-related behavioral data (e.g. users viewing results).
The iThemba Life implementation tool also allows the export of data so clinics can receive information of patient results as soon as they become available and, thus, nurses and clinicians can expedite the follow-up with those who need it most.
iThemba Life COVID-19 solution brings the benefits of using iThemba Life, a secure platform, to deliver results for COVID-19 tests directly into people's phones. This contributes to reducing the congestion at the clinics, facilitating the follow-up of those who receive a positive result and reducing the administrative burden of healthcare professionals.
We seek to partner from the start with governments, funders, implementers and other stakeholders in resource limited settings to address the COVID-19 pandemic and bring this effective solution to patients by reducing their risk of unnecessary clinic returns. It is through a collaborative partnership that all parties can work and learn together how to deploy an innovative solution like the iThemba Life COVID-19 app.
As testing and clinical guidelines for COVID-19 continue to evolve, we will partner with local healthcare authorities to update and adapt the content of the iThemba Life COVID-19 solution to meet the guidelines and drive clear and effective action.
