App from South Africa competing for the Mobile Premier Awards
16 of the most innovative Apps from all over the world will pitch live on stage in the biggest App show on Earth in Barcelona, Spain.
Barcelona, 9 February 2015. Mobile Triage App has been selected among the 16 emerging apps from all over the world to compete for the Best App of the Year at the Mobile Premier Awards (MPA), the industry benchmark awards for applications that will take place on 2 March, the first day of the Mobile World Congress, in Barcelona, Spain.
The South African App was elected the winner by the jury of mobile experts during the Appcircus competition held in Johannesburg on 11 September 2014, organised in collaboration with Mobile Web Africa 2014, the fifth South African edition of the most progressive and interactive mobile focused events in Sub-Saharan Africa.
Mobile Triage is a mobile application that is 100% correct, fast and saves lives. Triage is a process prioritizing patients who arrive at busy Emergency Centres. It’s vitally important that they are quickly screened and prioritized appropriately, such that these needing urgent attention are seen immediately. The South African Triage Scale (SATS) is a triaging system used across South Africa and in 14 other countries in the developing world. It employs algorithms and mathematical scores to calculate illness levels.
Drs Yaseen Khan and Mohammed Dalwai are the brains behind Mobile Triage app. One representative from the app will fly to Barcelona to compete for the MPA and as an additional prize he will visit the Mobile World Congress, courtesy of Intel Software. According to Carles Ferreiro, CEO of Appcircus and MPA, “The Mobile Premier Awards will feature the most innovative Apps in the world and will be a chance to connect with international developers, mobile experts and the most important actors of the app community from the whole world.”
