Wednesday, January 9, 2013

The Mongolian government has partnered with Singapore’s Borderless Healthcare Group to improve rural healthcare through the use of mobile technology. The initiative is dubbed the ‘Medical Silk Road’.

This partnership aims to give Mongolia’s rural clinics access to mobile healthcare services, connecting them to medical services, expertise, and knowledge from around the world.

Announced by the firm today, the first plank of this Medical Silk Road will be the BabySmart mobile app, aimed at helping women achieve better health before during and after pregnancy.
