Bisa is a Ghanaian mobile application that allows users to directly interact with medical practitioners without being physically present at the hospital. The mobile application not only addresses the problem of access to medical attention from qualified doctors, but also helps in the prevention and spread of diseases by providing up-to-date information on the epidemiology and pathogenesis of common diseases. Using the data gathered on the Bisa platform, whilst adhering to doctor-patient confidentiality, health experts will be able to detect outbreaks of diseases at an early stage and decision makers can also implement health policies that will improve healthcare delivery to people and communities. Bisa has been downloaded over 25,000 times, with the majority of users living in and around Accra and Kumasi.
