mHEALTH-INNOVATE (15) What can we learn from health workers' informal use of mobile phones? (8)

13 April, 2022

Dear Joey,

[Joey Lapena, Philippines: ]

Thanks for your note and examples--it's great to see these real-life scenarios.

With regard to the second point on use of the phone to communicate with colleagues, patients and families--are there specific types of issues that you would communicate through these channels, and issues you would not? Do you also use the phone to communicate more with your colleagues or more with patients/families?
