Electronic healthcare solutions provider, SOAPware Inc., will work closely alongside FACES to deliver a solution which can accommodate the Foundation's needs for individual patient follow-up and collaboration with numerous local community resources.

About the FACES Foundation
FACES Foundation is a non-profit (501c3) that has a mission to provide comprehensive, high quality care for indigent, medically isolated cleft lip/palate patients beyond surgery alone in a locally sustainable model.
FACES (Foundation for the Advancement of Cleft Education and Services), founded in 2001, has performed hundreds of cleft lip and palate surgeries on medically isolated patients. But, we know that surgery alone is not enough to help our patients; they must also learn to speak after their surgery and post-op healing is complete. This is where our unique, technological connectivity comes into play. Using 3G, 4G and WiFi technology we connect with our patients abroad. Our highly trained speech therapists, based in Portland, Oregon, can connect with patients in Peru through internet connections and video conferencing. Wireless connectivity is overcoming medical isolation and international borders – using 3G/4G/WiFi connections, we are able to deliver complex services never before available to difficult to reach populations. The results have been impressive. For more information about the FACES Foundation, please visit http://www.facesfoundation.org
