Smart and portable health diagnostic devices donated to Moldova

Posted August 1, 2022

Three smart and portable health diagnostic devices were donated to Moldova by S-Case, a Slovak startup that developed the solution with the support of Slovak Challenge Fund, implemented by UNDP. The donation was coordinated by UNDP, in the partnership with the Ministry of Health.  

The equipment will be used by Refugee & Accommodation Centres in Cahul and Ungheni, so as the Centre for Rehabilitation of Victims of Domestic Violence in Gagauzia region, providing shelter to people fleeing the war in Ukraine. All these institutions are supported by UNDP and its partners.

The portable Scase devices combine smart sensors with a digital patients database and allows health workers to provide people with fast diagnostics of their health. They allow for all-in-one measurement of vital signs: pulse-oximeter, blood pressure monitor, non-contact thermometer, and glucometer.

“Since the war began, we felt a tremendous need to support health workers in their daily routine in shelters. Similarly, as in Slovakia, we are proud to streamline field diagnostics also in Moldova in cooperation with UNDP. We believe Scase prove itself as a smart and handy tool bringing innovation into such difficult times and situation.” said Tatiana Šišková, Project & PR Manager of S-Case.

The Scase solution has been developed for people and health providers in countries that have limited capacity to provide integrated and person-centred care. The solution is being scaled up in many countries such as North Macedonia, Albania, Georgia, the United Arab Emirates, and now Moldova. The technology was featured in Forbes Slovakia
