Challenge: How Can We Help People Prevent, Detect, and Manage Chronic Diseases, Especially in Resource-Limited Settings?
Solution: Smart Clinics - Remote Patient Care by Monetizing Physical Exercise for Waste Management
Smart clinics connect health care providers with people living in slums through remote health care. This solution proposes physical clinics within slums that are equipped with smart technology to gather, monitor, analyze, and transmit personal health information to health care providers anywhere in the world. These clinics provide food and medical coupons for compliance and deploy an exercise-powered waste management system to subsidize its cost.
