A Nigerian doctor has designed Hudibia, an app for all health professionals and patients.
The app which has multi-lingual features, allows doctors and patients to communicate in local Nigerian languages as well as other major international languages such as English, French, and Arabic.
The video feature also makes it possible for doctors to interact face- to -face or arrange a physical meeting.
Amadi said, “The app is to address public health awareness and issues of fake drugs. It is a good way of getting second opinion about health issues. Examinations can be done on patients and doctors from anywhere around the world can also attend to people healthcare need. Drugs by prescription by can bought from the registered pharmacies on the app.”
Dr. Ahjoku Amadi-Obi is a Physician/Scientist with professional experience spanning Africa, Europe and USA and is a trained Surgeon and Emergency Medicine Doctor, fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland. He was a research scientist in NIH in Bethesda, MD, USA for 8 years and a research fellow in telemedicine and works on wearable technologies in healthcare.
The app is available for free on all Apple and Android devices.
