Esther Nanzayi Ngayua


The utilization of smart wearable devices and cloud computing in the Kenyan public health care system will facilitate real-time patient monitoring and management. The shortage of certified healthcare professionals and the limited access to quality specialized care for individuals in remote settings has prompted the adoption of wearable devices and cloud computing strategies in Kenya. However, there lacks a clear framework design of integrating the technologies in the public health sector. This article evaluates the current status of healthcare systems in Kenya. It also investigates the existing mobile health and cloud computing services in the country while evaluating the main legal concerns inherent to the utilization of the technologies. The document further outlines a framework design for a mobile application named GB Health. The application incorporates cloud computing and smart wearable devices in the Kenyan public health care system. The design will enhance workflow and patient outcomes in the sector.
