GOAL 3 is a social enterprise with a vision of fair and accessible healthcare for everyone. Our mission is to enable and empower health workers at places where it is needed most. We want to achieve that through smart, data-driven and user-centred technologies that aids health workers to achieve more with less. Our first product is the algorithm enhanced IMPALA monitoring system for hospitalized children and neonates which we are developing with key opinion leaders and research institutes from Malawi, the UK and the Netherlands. This system will aid health workers to make better risk assessments and prioritize patients and therefore allows them to treat patients better in an early stage and allocate scarce resources more effectively.
Within the ‘Kumbatia’ (Swahili for Embrace) project GOAL 3 focuses on the first steps towards commercialization of the IMPALA monitoring system which is an essential requirement for sustainable and scalable impact. The ultimate goal of this project is to find and utilize our “beachhead” market which will allow us to make the next steps into commercialization at scale. We will use a funneled approach in which we will make the next steps in market exploration.
At the end of this project we aim to have 100 monitoring systems running successfully in 3-7 hospitals for a period of 6 months. In addition we will have an in depth analysis and plan for scaling our business that is needed for future funding rounds and sustainable growth.
