Participation to The D2Rwanda Study project

In Spring 2017, WiredIn worked on mobile app development for the D2Rwanda Study (which stands for Digital Diabetes Study in Rwanda) project developed and conducted by Aarhus University (AU) and the University of Luxembourg (UL) under the auspices of the University of Rwanda and Rwanda Biomedical Centre. The project aims to determine the efficiency of HBCPs programme and mobile health application in responding to solve the problem of mismatch of doctors and nurses to diabetes patients in Rwanda (Ref: LINK).

WiredIn was involved in the development of the mobile app call Nyitaho and development of a web-based system that enables nurses and HBCPs (Home-Based Care Practitioner) to study, to arrange appointments, to insert clinical and laboratory results and also update current medications.

We received positive comments on our work as follow:

“A local software company was contracted for the development of the project (WiredIn Ltd), aiming at taking advantage of their knowledge of the Rwandan context, its challenges, and opportunities. Right from the beginning, the team of the company has demonstrated an exceptional level of professionalism and know-how and has managed to provide essential input and guidance. Based on the agile methodology, the development work was divided into small pieces; for each iteration, there were phases of planning, design, coding ad n testing. Bi-weekly meetings took place with the two PhD students, aiming at demonstrating the working product of the iterations, and provide feedback. Following this workflow, the development team was able to adapt to changes and requests rapidly.”

“Rebrain” is our new online based networking service aiming to tackle and provide solutions to “Brain Drain” in Africa and allowing Diasporas to keep themselves up-to-date with information on Africa and their own countries by introducing a platform where people seeking to share their experiences and interests can interact. This platform will allow local entities, government institutions and other institutions in many different forms to share their project and gain interests and knowhow, solution, comment and suggestions from the experts in the field to tackle the challenges they are facing in their respective sectors and daily works.
The platform will connect individuals to individuals, to institutions, to companies to communities, to projects and researches and so on.

This platform will bring inclusive challenge and problem solving solutions by allowing participation of experts in the field.

Experts will also be able to connect themselves with projects or institutions in their preferred areas and areas of interests and provide a method to reconnect or deepen their connection to their homeland. This will enable them to contribute to the development of the continent and countries in Africa.
