Nationwide ‘Paperless’ eHealth project Commenced in Ghana

The Ministry of Health and the Ghana Health Service has engaged the services of Lightwave ehealthcare Services (LWEHS) to roll out an integrated health care solution that includes a Centralized data center with a 24 hour recovery unit to serve as an infrastructure platform for a patient-centered health care solution.

 

The solution will network all health facilities including agencies of the Ministry of Health, provide electronic Medical records for care seekers, enable and facilitate tele medicine, and develop a a real time bio-surveillance system – which will support the fight against disease outbreaks and the spread of communicable disease.

 

The system which integrates with the current National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) enables the development of a patient management system – this will streamline the Admission, discharge and transfer process of healthcare.

 

Chief Technology Officer of Lightwave Mr Thomas Mac Scofield, said the project was a culmination of years of planning and working with the MOH to bring ehealth solutions to the public health care industry.

 

Mr Thomas Mac Scofield revealed to Ghanahealthnest.com that, the cost of the project is covered by the government through the MoH and GHS thus will not require patients or subscribers to pay for it.

 

Nrip Nihalani consulting director with LightWave revealed to Ghanahealthnest.com that the project follows Ghana’s Data privacy and HIPAA laws to ensure its safety.

 

He added that, the time was right for Ghana as most countries have gone ahead and made significant mistakes. “Ghana is at the absolute time with the technologies, the budgets, the preparedness all meeting together to launch its e-health”, Nrip intoned.

EMR'S: PROVIDING INDIAN DOCTORS WITH AN EDGE: VOL 1

EMR'S: PROVIDING INDIAN DOCTORS WITH AN EDGE: VOL 1 | healthcare technology | Scoop.it

Typically, a patient's record is just a folder with his details and probably a photograph on the front cover, coupled with sheets and sheets of data recording his previous visits.
