Spanning a year after the previous trip to Cambodia in June 2014 (exactly the time when SIGHT was known as GHTI instead), the whole hardware and software team, with new members, return to the country once again in June 2015, this time with two technologies introduced by SIGHT: electronic medical record system (EMRS), developed by software team, and drug dispensary box (DDX) by the hardware team.
operates mobile clinics in the capital, Phnom Penh. Within approximately one week (8-16 June 2015), both teams in SIGHT toiled hard in ensuring that the products developed in this Spring semester be as user-friendly and easily accessible by the One-2-One staff as possible. It was really exciting to see, despite initial difficulties in adjusting to the new system and some unexpected ‘bugs’ discovered during site testing, the willingness by One-2-One, and especially the medical teams, in learning the new system, and getting adjusted to it.
One small step for Cambodia, it’s a huge leap of faith for SIGHT.
