As a medical doctor by training, I want to use mobile technology to increase the accessibility of information that is available in the online Health Facility Registry so that patients can enquire by SMS about the types of services offered in nearby health facilities and make decisions about the best place to go for care.

My solution will utilize existing online health facilities registry (HFR) to create a more specific, user-friendly system that will enable quick access to this information on health facilities and the types of services that are offered in each facility at selected village authorities through SMS messaging, on-line database of the public health facilities. The system will include a contact feature for each facility (email/ mobile number) to facilitate enquiry on service provision.
