The Mobile Vision Project began in October 2011. Today, 50 township-level clinics regularly use the system in their daily medical practice and an additional 71 clinics are registered to roll out the system in the coming months. Of the 1,144 eye exams collected to date, 684 resulted in a diagnosis of amblyopia.
"We are honored to work with Qualcomm on this project to show how wireless technologies can have significant positive impact in health care," said Tao Li, president of Xi'an Kingtone Information. "Early results indicate that the 3G-enabled system assists in better collection and analysis of patients' health information, improves efficiency and timeliness in data exchange between health workers and improves data collection, screening and treatment."
"Since 2006, Qualcomm has been committed to demonstrating the use of advanced wireless technology to improve health care, education and entrepreneurship in China," said Xiang Wang, senior vice president and president of Qualcomm Greater China. "The Mobile Vision Project builds on the knowledge we have gained over the years to help improve patient care in rural communities and is a powerful example of how through collaboration, we can create projects that make a difference in people's lives."
