Executive summary 

Tremend partnered up with the Vodafone Foundation to create a mobile app in order to help doctors sync their data regarding patients. The app streamlined the entire data collection process and enabled doctors from Merci Charity Boutique working on the Zana Merciluta project to save a good amount of time when offering mobile dental care services. Tremend was an enabler in mobile medicine.

The client 

Established in 2012, Merci Charity Boutique is a non-profit association which opened the first charity concept store in Romania. The NGO started the Zana Merciluta initiative, to offer mobile dental care services free of charge in poor rural areas in several areas of Romania. This is the first project in Romania that aims to create a map of the health needs of the society and to enable doctors to treat for free children in need.

Business Challenge 

Mobile doctors from Merci Charity Boutique working on the Zana Merciluta project were not able to access their data because of the lack of Internet access in the remote areas where they operated. As a result, they were required to write down all patient information and keep all papers in one place. This consumed a lot of time and ran the risk of losing the information gathered.

Solution delivered by Tremend 

In order to solve this problem that mobile doctors were facing, Tremend developed an Android mobile app called ACUMM. This app-enabled doctors to streamline data entry operations and keep all their patients’ data in a safe place. The moment the app had access to the internet, the doctors could manually sync and save the data on their physical servers.

Doctors were now able to save all their customer data in a shorter amount of time. This allowed them to complete seven dental campaigns in poor villages across Romania considerably faster. To top it all, they were able to get the assurance that their patients’ data will safely be stored on the server.

The ACUMM application also enabled doctors to easily connect to a mobile printer and print all the files on paper. As a result, mobile doctors could save the history of each patient in a database and gain access to up-to-date results.

Results 

Tremend was able to design a high-end, reliable mobile app that enabled doctors to save precious time and also store their patients’ data on the physical server.  As a result, Merci Charity Boutique, the association behind the NGO, created an environment that would streamline the activities of mobile doctors.

This project enabled by Tremend was an innovation in mobile medicine. The project won first place in a Gala held in 2018 by the Civic Romanian Institute. The ACUMM app was also featured in many publications and is considered an eye-opener for the civil society regarding the need for dental care in rural areas of Romania.
