mHealth for Deepwater Horizon Victims

4-30-2013 8-17-14 PM

Nearly three years after the offshore oil platform Deepwater Horizon exploded off the coast of Louisiana, chronic health issues continue to plague local residents as a result of their exposure to the oil spill. In response, Health eVillages, a program of the not-for-profit Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights, has released a mobile app to assist locals.

Health eVillages creates innovative mobile health technologies, including medical reference and clinical decision support resources, for clinicians working in the most challenging clinical environments around the world.

The app is being rolled out to clinicians working in the four Louisiana parishes that were most heavily struck by the spill. It will provide clinicians with diagnostic and treatment guidance as clinicians work to treat the various conditions associated with oil exposure.
