Using SMS Technology In Healthcare

So, I came cross this link fon twitter(@vwadhwa). It talks about how through the use of SMS text in India Emergency Healthcare is brought to rural India.

I have been to India once and would go back in a heart beat. It is simple amazing the use of cell phone technology and SMS throughout India. Power maybe have the occasional brownouts, but the cell phone and texting will live on.

What I like about this use of technology is rather than bringing in technology, the group adapts technology that already exists.
