This 'MediCare' project is centered on discovering telemedicine devices in Ghana and their implementation and use within the Ghanaian setting. The user needs assessment conducted at the beginning of this project was used to uncover system functional and non-functional requirements and benchmark the implementation of a system that contributes to the fulfillment of SDG 3; good health and well-being by promoting remote medical care. Since the COVID-19 pandemic placed a strict restriction on movement to and from medical facilities, the implementation of MediCare sought to offer patients, precisely the mobility impaired and aged who are most vulnerable in society, a way to receive medical care from the comfort of their homes. This system was designed for Rhema Rapha Medical Center located in the Tse Addo community of Accra due to their desire for a telemedicine devise that facilitates health consultation virtually and their patient demographic ranging from the middle to upper-class population of Ghana. This patient demographic is likely to have a more significant percentage consisting of the aged and mobility impaired. The results of this indicate a 100% desire for the deployment of this system for Rhema Rapha Medical Center and 88.2% achievement of functional requirements identified at the beginning of the user needs assessment
