WaidX introduces new working strategies, allowing heath professionals remotely connected to provide training and teleconsultation to operators sited in LMIC. In the most challenging scenario, where the medical pathologist is not locally available, the platform acts like a “virtual pathologist” allowing the real-time diagnosis performed by remote on the slides prepared by the laboratory technicians.
The success of this approach is proven by the first implementation of the Horn of Africa project.
Thanks to APOF NGO, Balbala Hospital hosts the only Pathological Anatomy Department in Djibouti. WaidX turned this department in the first node of an international telepathology network aimed to involve different countries within the Horn of Africa, allowing cancer screening programs and diagnosis for the entire population.
The next node implementation, already planned in the Pathological Anatomy Department of Hargeisa Group Hospital, in northern Somalia, will demonstrate that an interactive model among professionals resident in different countries can be implemented effectively.
