Kaadi is software that digitises medical records. Kaadi is a Swahili word that means card. The software is thus designed to replace the traditional hospital card used across Africa with a system that records, stores, analyses and shares medical records with relevant practitioners and health centres in the event of a patient transfer.
Relay Africa has designed Gyknow to tackle pre-eclampsia and eclampsia in pregnancy. In developing countries, a woman is seven times more likely to develop preeclampsia than a woman in a developed country (WHO). Characterised by high blood pressure, 10- 25% of preeclampsia cases will result in maternal death yet the condition is manageable when proper attention is given to pregnant women especially from 20 weeks of pregnancy onwards.
