The County Government of Kakamega has acquired a new Integrated Health Management Information System (HMIS) aimed at automating health care services in all health facilities across the County.
Speaking during the inception meeting with the company contracted to offer the service, Seamless Limited, the Chief Officer for ICT and E-government Mr Phanuel Musasia noted that the system will be a game changer in improving the status of health care due to its ease in monitoring service delivery, full patient referral system and financial management in the facilities. A move, the Chief Officer explained, is in line with Governor Fernandes Barasa’s agenda on provision of quality health care for the residents of Kakamega.
Mr. Musasia pointed out that the first phase will be rolled out at Kakamega County General Hospital as well as Malava and Butere Level lV hospitals by December 2023.
Kakamega County General Hospital Administrator Mr. Hillary Kiverenge stated that the Department of ICT will ensure a seamless data migration process to the new system and offer technical support for the system during the implementation period.
