NASARAWA state government has commenced arrangements towards transiting from analog to digital system in the compilation of patients’ medical records across the state hospitals.
The state governor, Umaru Tanko Al-Makura disclosed this yesterday when he paid an unscheduled visit to Mararaba-Gurku medical center in Karu local government area of the state.
He pointed out that the state government would collaborate with the State geographical information services to begin the computerisation of patients medical records in the state hospitals in line with international best practices.
Al-Makura further explained that the idea was to obtain the data of patients computerised for easy access while on hospital visit and to avoid mutilation of physical records in case of accident.
The governor noted that the Mararaba-Gurku medical centre will now serve as an outreach of National Hospital Abuja for surgeries and other needed services.
He revealed that the state government will soon build two units of 8-man quarters at the Mararaba Gurku Medical Center for visiting consultants and other medical personnel.
