Virtual Mentor Health

Virtual Mentor is a hands-free chatbot that talks to health workers during emergencies, reminding them of evidence-based algorithmic assessments and treatments.

The Problem

Underserved communities

In rural and low-resource settings, nurses and midwives are often alone at remote health posts or at understaffed hospitals.

Maternal Deaths

A 2017 report on causes of maternal death published by the government of Kenya found that in 91% of cases, “a different management of care could have made a difference to the outcome.”

Inadequate tools

Printed wall charts, paper checklists, mobile application and other resources that require manual manipulation are of little use to workers who need both hands.

The Need

Health workers need decision support tools to implement evidence- and place-based treatment protocols, especially during emergencies when every second counts.
