Raxa is an organization dedicated to creating a free open-source healthcare information system and an electronic medical record for mostly poor, sometimes illiterate, patients and their overworked providers who are always in need of reliable health information accessible on mobile platforms. We are focused on India and developing countries, but our system is applicable across the globe. On a day-to-day basis, some of the major improvements promised by our system include providing (1) effective access to and ownership of health information by patients, including by voice (2) patient health-seeking behavior decision support and provider clinical decision support and (3) communication between doctors, public health specialists and mobile community health workers. Our conviction is that electronic health systems are the way of the future, and that their adoption is even more vital, impactful, and scalable in developing countries.
