Anticipated Solution Architecture...

Critical steps:

  • Sender submits an sms with patient case details; structured format: ID patient no, content
  • The filter application makes verification actions i.e format rules
  • The intermediary filter application re-shapes text sms’s into readable web based or emails formats and sent to the operator/moderator.
  • Moderator reads case details and decides the final decision or which specialist(s) most appropriate to the case in question
  • An automatic email sent to the specialist or sender
  • Specialists logs in the server, reads the case history and provides a response to the moderator and the sender
  • Referrer reads response from the operator/moderator
  • The referrer reports action being taken (transfer details)
