SAGINAW, Mich., Oct. 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Robertson Global Health Solutions Corporation (OTCBB: RHSC) and Montana Healthcare Solutions Pty Ltd have announced today that they have signed a commercial agreement with Telemedicine Africa to provide high quality, cost effective health care services and solutions to the medically underserved population of Africa through the use of affordable, appropriate technologies. Robertson Global and Telemedicine Africa aim to deliver RHealth Advisor mobile web as an essential addition to its telemedicine solution offering, enabling the provision of medical support and services to be extended directly into the community. The expanded capabilities provided by RHealth Advisor will be offered as a natural extension of the telemedicine projects currently in effect with provinces in South Africa. Robertson Global and Telemedicine Africa recognize significant synergies through the integration of RHealth Advisor into their current telemedicine solutions to sell to national health departments and key healthcare providers across the South African Development Community (SADC) countries.
"Telemedicine Africa is committed to providing healthcare solutions for the African market that are accessible, relevant and above all, affordable. We see RHealth Advisor as being the ideal solution for the improvement of healthcare service delivery in the African setting".
For many years Telemedicine Africa has been researching and testing various telemedicine technologies globally in order to bring solutions to Africa that are world-class, but are also tailored to meet the challenges of the African landscape. Today, the products and solutions offered by Telemedicine Africa have been customized to be effective, while using very few resources. Telemedicine Africa is committed to implementing sustainable solutions and prides itself on pioneering telemedicine technologies in Africa for Africa. Robertson Global has been driven by the philosophy to provide integrated, multifunctional, scalable and dynamic solutions and products that will improve the provision of care both today and in the future.
Accessed via cloud computing, RHealth Advisor mobile web will assist in improving the provision of care throughout Africa. The unique design and flexibility of the software allow it to be customized for various languages and for lesser skilled health providers. It can even be adapted to various regions throughout Africa to assist in determining local disease prevalence statistics, allowing the lesser skilled healthcare provider to be even more accurate when determining treatment. The intelligence behind RHealth Advisor also recognizes when the user is not able to determine a confident diagnosis and therefore provides additional symptoms or physical exams to consider. RHealth Advisor also recognizes that resources are limited and only recommends physical exams and treatment options that the healthcare worker is able and approved to provide. This all allows healthcare workers in the field to be more equipped with the latest medical research, diagnostic support, and documentation of findings and results, providing them with the tools to meet the challenges of healthcare delivery in rural parts of Africa.
"We are excited about this relationship and eager to equip healthcare providers serving in telemedicine projects across Africa. Our approach is to work together with the SADC committee, governments and other partners throughout Africa. We anticipate that these projects will lead to subsequent sustainable deployment models that are scalable and have a clear social impact which can be implemented in other areas."
Marc Decker, COO of Robertson Global Health Solutions
Robertson Global and Telemedicine Africa are eager to partner together to jointly be responsive to the changing needs of the healthcare community and provide the innovative services and solutions to encourage a sustainable technological revolution in the telemedicine industry.
