Health Minister Kwaku Agyeman-Manu has revealed that the government is working to link all health facilities across the country to a paperless system that will make health care easily accessible.
According to the sector minister, patient records and history will be unified in a single digital database, which can be accessed by any hospital that a patient visits.
Kwaku Agyeman-Manu mentioned this when he launched the Health Facilities Regulatory Agency’s digital platform on Tuesday, March 23, 2021.
“Before the end of the year and I will say that maybe soon, they will see efforts to digitize the healthcare sector.
Health service delivery systems will work better. Patients will have a single folder no matter where they are. If [the patients] are transferred from Sunyani Regional Hospital to the Teaching Hospital in Kumasi, they don’t have to carry their folder with them. Your data and records will be kept and monitored by a doctor.”
The New Patriotic Party government has continuously expressed its determination to automate all transactions to reduce human interaction.
