What drives us?

  • In Sub Sahara Africa , the majority of the population have an average life expectancy of 52, 30 years less than Western Europe.
  • Health Services are poor; there is a chronic shortage of qualified health workers and systems are outdated.
  • Vital people migrate to urban areas to search for a better life. Children and elderly people are left behind.
  • Electricity distribution and internet connections are failing.

We believe
that there is
an opportunity in each of these limitations.

Economic growth is a process, not a 4G antenna. You can’t “leapfrog” development. It has to come with vision, leadership, combating lobbies and often hard sacrifices in order to preserve the greater good.

Solar

A renewable energy solution

  • Access to electricity in rural area’s improves quality of life.
  • Numerous outages of the electricity grid lead to expensive solutions
  • Electricity generation by means of diesel generators leads to polution and complicated logistics.
  • Our solution

    We offer reliable, clean solutions for a competitive kWh price and offer both off-grid and on the grid solutions. These can be large scale solar systems or rooftop solutions on roofs of an industrial size.

  • Our services

    We develop, build, finance, maintain and operate our systems. You do not need to invest. Our purpose is that you pay less than your current kWh price on the basis of a long term contract. This provides long term security in an unpredictable environment.

  • A typical case

    After a successful implementation of our hospital management system in the Matany hospital (incl. a 1 MW rooftop solar system) we are currently developing the Akolong Jik project, a 20 to 30 MW utility scale solar energy near Mount Moroto. In rural Uganda only 7% of the people have access to electricity. We aim to commission this project mid 2019.

Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.

Care

Health Care Solutions

  • Today the African continent lacks professional health services.
  • Within the next 80 years the African continent will grow from 1 to 4 billion people
  • 50% of the African population lives in off-grid areas (no connectivity)
  • It is our goal to support hospitals and health centers with Hospital Management Information Systems (HMIS)
  • Our Solutions

    Oranga, an African based Hospital Management Information System (HMIS) is designed to function in areas with minimal connectivity and power.

    It’s objective: an environment to improve the well-being of patients, to gauge the patient
    health and the quality of care while making optimal use of all resources.

    The system supports health-workers creating and using electronic medical records.
    It supports health-workers recognizing patients using different methods. Health-workers are supported in their clinical decision process and supported with all the services provided in a hospital (registration, lab, pharmacy, various wards and various types of medical programs).

    Oranga is flexible, easy to implement, modular, scalable and less complex than other systems. Oranga is designed to support any web browser and compatible with any client base system, for example an Android system.

    Oranga means health and wellbeing in Maori.

  • Our services

    With our Hospital Management Information System we support health professionals to follow a rigid medical protocol and support organizations getting their data and information on time.

    We support hospitals implementing the HMIS-tool and associated processes. We have ample experience in a remote and off grid context.

  • Proof of Concept

    St Kizito Hospital in Matany Uganda
    A completely off grid integrated solution in a 250 bed hospital. 22 health centres in the vicinity of the hospital are connected to the system. The proof of concept is collaboration between the Catholic Church and SC Synergie.

    For more information on the hospital visit: www.matanyhospital.org

  • Objectives

    In 2018 SC Synergie will continue to deploy the Oranga HMIS Solution in 2 health districts in Uganda (hospitals and health centers). In 2019 we will continue to roll out our solutions.

    We aim that patients have their own personal health record on their mobile phone.

"In remote parts of Africa, the average life expectancy is less than 50 years. In 93 % of these areas electricity is absent and health services are POOR. IT DOES MAKE A DIFFERENCE IF WE MAKE A CHANGE."
