In this tech age, many hospitals in Nigeria are yet to digitise their records. This is a situation peculiar with government-owned hospitals across the country. You discover that many of them still rely on searching for the files of patients to get their health history or information.
This can waste precious time leading to a fatal mix-up of records. If this is the case, it can lead to the administration of a wrong treatment to a patient. This can lead to the avoidable deaths of patients. So, digitising the health records of these hospitals cannot be downplayed.
Probably due to this problem, Curacel Health was launched in 2016 by Henry Mascot to offer a super simple Electronic Health Record for health providers and hospitals.
Some of the reasons why hospitals and health providers should use Curacel Health to digitise the health records of patients includes: it is easily accessible, provides up-to-date patient information that helps clinicians diagnose patients, reduce medical errors, and provide safer care. It also helps declutter your office and save staff hours of filling out paperwork and tracking down information.
Importantly, it is available offline. So, you do not need to worry if you do not have data or internet connection.
It is high time for hospitals and health providers to embrace this idea if not to save time for their employees tracking patient’s information but to prevent avoidable medical errors.
