The goal is to create a mobile application that assists users in finding their nearest healthcare facility based on their location and required service.
How it works: users access mobile application from their mobile device (preferably ensuring that the GPS functionality on their phones is enabled). The application will access the location of the user and place them on a map. There are then a list of services that the user can click on. Once this is done, the application will pull up a list of health facilities/services that are available. The user can click any of the services on the list or on the map.
Once clicked, the facility details will appear. This includes details of services offered, operating hours, phone numbers and addresses. It also has a click-to-call button and a get-directions button which provides accurate navigation from where the user is to the facility. This is the first cross border initiative of its kind and by far the most well supported database in comparison to any other online directory in the region.
