Ubrica Africa Blockchain Summit 2019

St. Paul’s University, Main Campus, Limuru, Kenya.

April 1 – 3, 2019.

Theme: Blockchain Technology Accelerating Human Development.

The summit will involve representatives from local and international academia, industry and the governments. Nonaka (2007) explained that new knowledge emerges from such divergent stakeholders in four stages of socialization, externalization, combination and internalization (SECI). The knowledge that emerges about blockchain technology will have relevance, fit and has working in Africa.

Summit Question

The question the summit is trying to solve: What are the features of blockchain technologies that have relevance, fit, and working capacity in Africa?  How can such technology be created here in Africa?

Technologies that are relevant fit and have working capacity are appropriate technologies and they are grounded in local knowledge (Glaser & Strauss, 1967)

Objective

The objective of the summit is to work with the stakeholders of blockchain in Africa to generate a framework that includes technical guidelines for industry, policy guidelines for government and academic guidelines for teaching blockchain in academia.

Participants

The summit will invite at least 300 participants, at least 100 from each of the fields of practice indicated (i.e., academia, government and industry).

Call for Papers

In keeping with the summit’s overall theme, Blockchain Technology Accelerating Human Development, the summit’s open session will focus on how we can create blockchain solutions that have relevance, fit and working capacity in Africa. The summit will offer more opportunities for empowering citizens, enhancing learning and adopt blockchain technology as a means of accelerating human development.

We seek contributions that illustrate the different ways in which the government, academia and industry are repositioning themselves to enhance their effectiveness and impact of blockchain technology in Africa.

GLOBAL HEALTH SUPPLY CHAIN

Global health comprises the following subsectors:

>> Disease surveillance, detection, monitoring

>> Disease prevention

>> Health delivery

>> Health financing

>> Health supplies (e.g., pharmaceuticals, medical devices, and hospital supplies)

>> Health information

Blockchain technology such as Ubricoin will have profound effect on all the six fields indicated above.

Questions for possible projects:

>> How will Ubricoin blockchain affect global health supply chain for disease surveillance, detection, monitoring?

>> How will Ubricoin blockchain affect global health supply chain for disease prevention?

>> How will Ubricoin blockchain affect global health supply chain for health delivery?

>> How will Ubricoin blockchain affect global health supply chain for health financing?

>> How will Ubricoin blockchain affect global health supply chain for health supplies (e.g., pharmaceuticals, medical devices, and hospital supplies)?

>> How will Ubricoin blockchain affect global health supply chain for health information?

RONGAI HOSPITALS VISIT 2

NAME: Naomi Ng’endo Thotho

Date: Thursday, August 23, 2018

On Wednesday, August 22, 2018, we went back to Rongai to do a follow up on the various hospitals we visited on August 15, 2018. We managed to go to the six hospitals we had visited last week (i.e., August 15 2018); The Karen Hospital, Agha Khan Hospital, Hope Care Medical Centre, Mariakani Hospital, Garlands Medical Centre and Nairobi Women’s Hospital plus two more hospitals we had not visited; Gertrude’s Children hospital and Meds Medical Centre. We were following up reminding doctors about the Ubrica Global Journal System and the Clinical Proceedings from Hospitals of Kenya  where clinical works emerging from hospitals in Kenya are published.

The response this time was also positive although it was much more harder seeing the doctors who were very busy and most of them had attended medical camp. In Karen Hospital, we learnt that we needed an appointment to talk to the doctors on Tuesdays and Thursdays. In Gertrude’s Children Hospital, we learnt that we needed a letter from the main branch in Muthaiga to allow us to talk to the doctors.

The main challenge we faced this time was we were unable to meet most doctors due to lack of appointments but those who managed to spare us a few minutes were very positive and were willing to submit their work. We also got positive feedback from the nurses who were also willing to submit their work.

We decided to start attending grand-rounds so as to reach and talk to large number of doctors and also reach out to medical students.

RONGAI HOSPITALS VISIT REPORT 1

NAME: Naomi Ng’endo Thotho

DATE: Thursday, August 23, 2018

On Wednesday, August 15, 2018, we spent the day in Rongai going from hospital to hospital talking to doctors telling them about Ubrica Global Journal System . The System is created to host many publications for peer reviewed works by professionals.

The Clinical Proceedings from Hospitals of Kenya publishes the clinical works emerging from hospitals in Kenya. This journal accepts submissions from proceedings of grand rounds and similar clinical-pathology meetings, taking place in teaching hospitals in Kenya, case reports, anecdotes, original research works, monographs, theses on clinical subjects.

We met in Tumaini at 8:00am and had visited seven hospitals namely; Beacon of Hope, The Karen Hospital, Agha Khan Hospital, Hope Care Medical Centre, Mariakani Hospital, Garlands Medical Centre and Nairobi Women’s Hospital.

Most of the doctors had not heard of the Ubrica Global Journal or Ubrica so we started each meeting with a brief explanation of what our company was all about. We also told them of the importance of posting these journals which would help improve healthcare by providing a platform for various doctors to talk about their different experiences and how they deal with various issues.

The response from the doctors was very positive, they liked the idea and were willing to participate. Doctor Musa Atuti from Nairobi Women’s Hospital invited us to join them for their weekly meeting and get to talk to the other doctors in the hospital about the Ubrica Global Journal. We got the doctors contact information to follow up and some agreed to pass by our office to talk more about it and meet Dr Macharia Waruingi.

One of the doctors was concerned with the lack of internet access for some doctors and we told him we would help publish the journals and reports on behalf of the doctors. Another challenge we faced was the lack of detailed written material containing information about our site.

In overall the fieldwork was successful and we learned a lot on how to make the eventful fieldwork better.
