One of the most innovative and exciting approaches to mobile phone is their use in healthcare to create a continuum of care in rural regions where lack of health workers, distance, and poverty can prevent patients and families attending health facilities. In a number of palliative care programmes in Africa, patients, and volunteers "flash" community and palliative care nurses on their cell phones, - letting them know that they need to speak to someone, but not using up the small amount of valuable credit they have by letting the call go through. The nurses then call the patient or volunteer back and provide care and advice, or organise a visit.
