In partnership with the Kellogg Eye Center, Eye Health International (EHI), and the Jamaican Ministry of Health, the first CommonHealth+ prototype was developed, prefabricated, and shipped to Jamaica in the spring of 2016, where it is now operated by EHI in partnership with local authorities. The work is part of a broader research effort at the University of Michigan entitled Deep Monitoring, which, with support from the Provost’s Third Century Global Challenges initiative, aims to deliver technology-enabled health monitoring for chronic health care issues to remote and underserved populations globally.

CommonHealth+ at Sandy Bay Jamaica is the first in a series of prototypical modified container health clinics that aim to deliver telemedicine-based services in support of health monitoring for chronic care of public health issues for remote and underserved populations globally.
