Kallo Inc. chose Dell to boost healthcare technology in Guinea and other developing countries
Kallo Inc., a healthcare solutions provider, has chosen Dell to design and build the IT infrastructure for Kallo's healthcare delivery platform. This includes a state-of-the-art Global Response Centre in Canada, Clinical Command Centres in a number of strategic locations around the world and mobile clinics in rural communities in Guinea and other developing countries. Solutions designed to help developing countries work towards achieving World Health Organization (WHO) Millennium Development Goals
Dell will work with Kallo to design and build the technology solution leveraging tablet computers, workstations, servers, storage, networking and professional services. Once complete the Global Response Centre will serve as the communications hub for Kallo's customized healthcare delivery solutions, which include MobileCare, RuralCare, Hospital Information Systems, Telehealth Systems, pharmacy information, advanced diagnostics, disaster management, patient transportation systems and clinical training.
The Global Response Centre will link to Kallo's local Clinical Command Centres strategically located at teaching hospitals in Kallo's countries of operation. Kallo recently won a $200 million contract with the Ministry of Health and Public Hygiene in the Republic of Guinea, West Africa, to implement a customized healthcare delivery solution to serve the needs of the country's 10 million population.
Clinical Command Centres will coordinate the activities of nursing teams, specialists and mobile clinics; provide access to diagnostics and training for clinical issues faced by front-line healthcare workers; and, handle administration around logistics, supply and calibration. These centres will coordinate much-needed Mobile Care and Rural Care programs in local rural communities to help combat specific healthcare issues such as infant and maternal mortality, malaria and acute renal failure. These programs will help developing countries like Guinea work towards achieving World Health Organization (WHO)Millennium Development Goals(http://www.who.int/topics/millennium_development_goals/en/) for healthcare.
"The IT infrastructure forms the backbone of Kallo's entire healthcare delivery solution. We were impressed with Dell's portfolio of technology and healthcare solutions and its ability to provide a one-stop-shop for all Kallo's needs both in Canada and globally," commented John Cecil, Chairman and CEO, Kallo Inc. "Working with a single vendor provides economies of scale and simplifies installation, service and training, and the strength of the Dell brand name around the world will help Kallo gain the confidence of local government and decision makers when competing for supply contracts."
Work is expected to begin on Kallo's Global Response Centre in Markham, Ontario in mid-summer 2014.
