TruClinic to Assist with Neuro-Rehab Care in Morocco

Press Release

March 3, 2014

Salt Lake City – TruClinic has partnered with the Zahra Charity (zahracharity.org) to enable providers in Morocco and the U.S. to collaborate in the delivery of remote neuro-rehabilitative care to patients through care teams on the ground in Morocco.

The Zahra Charity (ZC) is an American non-profit organization founded by Jonathan Fellus, director of rehabilitation at the Meadowlands Hospital Medical Center in New Jersey and chief medical officer for the International Brain Research Foundation, and Mohammed Sbia, CEO of MS-Biotech, LLC. ZC is dedicated to building, managing and growing the infrastructure for specialized neuro-rehabilitative care through a new facility in Marrakech City, Morocco – The Moulay Ali Institute for Rehabilitation (MAIR).

Morocco lacks the trained personnel and facilities needed to provide access to neurorehabilitative services. As a result, children and adults with neurological disabilities, traumatic brain injuries (TBI), stroke-related disabilities, and spinal cord injuries have a low probability of receiving the necessary care to recover from their conditions. The vast majority of them end up severely handicapped, adding tremendous financial and emotional burden on their families and society.

ZC is addressing this deficit in neuro-rehabilitative care by using TruClinic to connect Moroccan care teams on the ground with providers in the U.S. to ensure the delivery of comprehensive care to patients with neurological conditions. Additionally, the care teams will have access with the click of a button to experts in the US and the most up to date treatment protocol, training and research.

TruClinic provides a web-based technology through which providers, patients and care teams can connect face-to-face through high definition video conferencing and securely share care instructions and patient information.

“This is an easy technology to use; joining with TruClinic allows us to scale more rapidly and provide the very best in patient care,” said Mohammed Sbia.
