Bringing patient care to remote patients with Power BI and Azure

Post Date:August 31, 2020


How do you deliver expert healthcare to the most remote towns and villages in South Africa, to the people who need it most? Dr. Raymond Campbell, founder of Phulukisa (which means "to heal" in the local language), turned to Microsoft Azure and PowerBI for the answer. His solution: a cloud-enabled backpack that field doctors can take into remote areas across South Africa and use to screen patients for common diseases such as tuberculosis, HIV, diabetes, and heart disease.

The data is then collected and uploaded to MySQL database in Azure, and the results are pushed back into Microsoft Power BI and delivered to doctors on the ground all within a matter of minutes. This short video illustrates how these solutions are enabling ordinary people with a vision to accomplish extraordinary things — and help save lives in the process.
