RxBox is a telemedicine device capable of capturing medical signals through built-in medical sensors, storing data in an electronic medical record (iClinicSys), and transmitting health information via the internet. It is a research program aimed to provide better access and reduce the overall cost of life-saving health care services in target Rural Health Units / Local Health Centers in GIDA (Geographically Isolated and Disadvantaged Areas) municipalities all over the country.

A total of four participants, composed of three registered midwives and one IT officer, attended the said training. The participants did a return demonstration to assess their learnings and have hands-on use of the device. For the year 2021, DOST-XI conducted seven training events and deployed a total of 24 RxBox units in different RHUs in Davao Region. (Information from DOST XI S&T Information and Promotion)
