Huawei donates 50 laptops to Beyond Zero to contribute to Universal Healthcare Coverage
Today, at State House, Her Excellency Margaret Kenyatta, received the first of 50 Huawei Matebook X Pro Laptops from Stone He, CEO of Huawei Kenya. The award-winning top-of-the range laptops will be used primarily for the Beyond Zero Medical Safaris, as well as in Beyond Zero Operations and Beyond Zero Mobile clinics, helping improve the efficient delivery of healthcare services.
Beyond Zero Medical Safaris are three-day events that provide an array of services such as screening of the heart for children, eye care for the elderly, antenatal screening for pregnant women, repair of obstetric fistulae for women, enrollment into NHIF and assessment and registration of children with disability. They take place across the country in partnership with local County governments and many generous healthcare providers who provide services for free to the disadvantaged.
Now with support for Huawei, Beyond Zero will be able to use the laptops to register patients, process them at the relevant health provider’s service desk, prescribe medication, treatment or follow-up actions, and get accurate reports and data. The laptops are extremely high-quality with a tough body, scratch-free and high brightness screen as well as long 12-hour battery life so they are particularly suitable for use in outdoor environments. With a touchscreen along with the keyboard, they will enable the rapid use of medical records software that will not only speed up the delivery of services at the Medical Safari so they can benefit more patients, but also improve the quality of care enabling coordination amongst the many service providers.
