It was originally articulated as intermediate technology by the economist Ernst Friedrich "Fritz" Schumacher in his work.

A more appropriate approach to this system might involve increasing Community Health Workers’ access to these devices and the necessary post-diagnosis educational material. This paradigm would refocus efforts away from deskilling, more towards the entire pre- and post-diagnosis user experience.
