Hundreds of refugees cross the border into Greece every day. The Greek Ministry of Health and various NGOs attempt to provide healthcare to refugees, but no health records are available to access and track their medical conditions, treatments, and prescriptions. As a result, many refugees are not accurately or holistically assessed and consequently, receive repeated or ineffective treatments.
Join this unprecedented project to address the problem of care coordination between health providers by creating an electronic health record system for refugee camps and under-resourced areas around the globe. The Frontida Records team (https://www.frontidarecords.org/) is seeking to recruit highly skilled and zealous developers to join our development team in further expanding our online platforms to record and share refugee and vulnerable population’s healthcare information safely among providers.
The Frontida Records team has already deployed 2 systems in Kara Tepe (one of Europe’s largest refugee camps) and their systems have already helped improve health documentation for hundreds of refugees. They have participated in an array of incubators and programs competitions – including Blackstone Launchpad, the National Academy of Engineering’s COVID-19 challenge, USC’s Marshall grief incubator, the Slingshot pitch competition, and are currently in both the Maseeh Entrepreneurship Prize Competition and the Min Family Challenge. They have received immense validation for the need of their software and are looking to recruit talented developers to expand their development team to serve the additional requests for their services from NGOs including Floating Doctors in Greece and the Children of War Foundation in Jordan.
This project will start in January of 2021. If you are interested in joining the team, please fill out this application
