Moca the cost effective mobile medical diagnostics

The software called Moca has been developed to run on Android, this is a new mobile application that enables easy diagnosis of patients in remote areas. Moca integrates the Android based medical diagnosis application with the open source OpenMRS medical records database system.

The project was started with a mission to provide flexible and scalable IT architecture to empower social entrepreneurs and NGOs to scale rural health diagnosis using mobile information and communication technologies.

An initial trial is set to happen in the Philippines, home of the project’s lead Dr. Leo Celi, where the device promises to be a boon to that country’s remote areas where there is a lack of doctors.
