0

Fake health insurance cardholders will no longer be a burden on the scheme with the planned introduction of paperless system at hospitals.

The system, which has already been piloted under the National e-Health Project eliminates the folder system and stores patient data electronically.

A pilot of the initiative under the National e-Health Project proves it automatically rejects cards which are not credible.

The platform also ensures that any health institution nationwide can access data stored via its use.

The project will be executed by local healthcare infrastructure entity, Light Wave e-Healthcare Solutions.

A centralized data centre and a 24-hour data recovery unit have already been developed.

Chief Executive of Komfo Anokye Hospital, Dr Oheneba Owusu-Danso outlines measures in place to make the system fully operational, early next year.

Health Minister, Kwaku Agyemang-Manu, believes the system will also check revenue leakages.

‘We are not only going paperless, we will, by next year, roll out cashless systems in all government health facilities’.

Project manager Eric Adjei Oduro says the only challenge is power outage, could affect it efficiency, he wants management at hospitals where the exercise is being piloted to get generator plant to support.
