The Ncediso™ application (app) is an integrated mobile app developed to up-skill community healthcare workers including nurses and clinic practitioners in areas where basic healthcare, first aid skills and clinics are scarce. The app allows for early detection of various disabilities and diseases among children, child nutrition, chronic disease management, and information on infectious and non-infectious diseases, first aid and various other medical conditions. The app also offers interoperability between its different users.
Ncediso™ was developed by the Centre for Community Technologies (CCT) at the Nelson Mandela University with the objective of making healthcare and medical information more accessible to those with no or limited medical training. Ncediso™ aims to educate users, while also assisting with the detection, monitoring and evaluation of diseases.
Ncediso™ underwent strict user testing and is available to users through Google Play Store.
