AMPATH – Network Deployment in Eldoret, Kenya
By networking its primary clinic locations and outfitting them with workstations linked to the central OpenMRS server in Eldoret, AMPATH can transform the way it provides medical care. A high- speed network linking the clinics allows Eldoret-based doctors and specialists to ‘whisper in the ears’ of field clinicians, nurses, and health workers as they meet with patents, helping with diagnosis and treatment in real or near-real time. The creation of an AMPATH network opens the door for providing a number of additional computerized services to field locations including VOIP phone calls and centralized email.
Inveneo designed and deployed the network in Eldoret, working with local partners Setright and technology partners. The deployment was also used to train these partners in low cost wireless solutions. Our partners are now providing network support.
