Empowering healthcare through ICT
MWIKA is a dutch charity that aims to improve healthcare in Tanzania by advancing and implementing IT solutions. We are dedicated to empower healthcare professionals, enhance patient care, and establish a healthcare system that is both accessible and efficient.
We have successfully established a robust ICT infrastructure that supports KCMC’s need for digitizing processes and transitioning from conventional paper-based methods to digital systems. Numerous challenges related to availability, scalability, and security were identified and effectively resolved. At its core, we have created a reliable and secure environment. Our commitment extends to continuously enhancing the ICT infrastructure to meet future demands, coupled with initiatives to enhance ICT knowledge and foster security awareness through educational programs.
A state-of-the-art Cardiovascular Centre is set to be established at KCMC, dedicated to delivering comprehensive care for both pediatric and adult patients grappling with heart-related conditions.
Construction will begin in 2024. The center will open in stages, in late 2025 and early 2026.
MWIKA is playing a pivotal role by providing IT consultancy and assisting in the realization of the facilities for the Cardiac Centre.
In 2023, MWIKA and KCMC collaborated on a project at St. Joseph Hospital with the primary goal of establishing a secure connection between St. Joseph and KCMC.
This connection facilitates the secure exchange of medical information, thereby enhancing the efficiency and accessibility of healthcare in Moshi.
Furthermore, MWIKA deployed hardware to expand and improve the network infrastructure at St. Joseph Hospital. MWIKA is working with St. Joseph to further improve the ICT infrastructure.
