The First Attempt to Digitize Ebola Health Records
Ebola treatment in West Africa is going digital.
Keeping detailed patient records during the Ebola outbreak can be a nightmare. Currently, health care workers use very basic methods, ranging from scanning files to writing on white boards to calling results across rooms to simple memorization. But the International Rescue Committee (IRC), a crisis organization is about to change that by bringing in electronic health records to its new Ebola treatment unit opening the week of December 15 in Monrovia, Liberia.
