Today, Sagam Community Hospital (SCH) welcomed Ms. Rose Ndinda from Mobile ODT to train our clinical and nursing staff on the MobileODT device. This innovative device is used to assist in cervical cancer screening. The training was held in the new teaching space at the African Institute for Health Transformation (AIHT), which sits on the top floor of the new wing at SCH.
The camera, which is connected to a smart phone, allows the health provider to capture a photo, take client details and share the photo in real-time with an approved ob/gyn consultant. This is all supported with an online platform that has been set up specifically for SCH.
Ms. Ndinda provided a demonstration that was both theoretical and practical and also held a real-time demonstration with a patient so that the participants could test the device.
SCH will be implementing use of the device immediately during our weekly ob/gyn clinic held every Tuesday and our weekly outreaches held every Wednesday.
