IICS Technologies team holds an Integrated Hospital Management Information System Review

In a bid to asses and get a deeper understanding of the progress attained since the Integrated Hospital Management Information System (iHMIS) was deployed in some health facilities, China-Uganda Friendship Hospital in Nagura held an engagement meeting with the IICS Technologies team.

Dr. Batiibwe Emmanuel Paul the Hospital Director while chairing the meeting drew examples from his past experiences in other countries noted that; any system that seeks to ease work of an administrator ought to be embraced and supported despite the challenges that may prevail.

He led a team of hospital administrators, clinicians, senior nurses, pharmacists among others, who on their part highlighted the importance of different unique system modules. However, the occasional breakdown of network impedes the functionality of the well intentioned system, they said.

Hajj Abdul Nsubuga, the Project Manager of the iHMIS, in response pledged to engage stake holders responsible for infrastructure and network, to find a lasting solution to the intermittent network failure. He was accompanied by Mr. Solomon Ssendigiya, the Head of Business Development and Strategy as well as Change and Development Officers from IICS Technologies.

In the implementation arrangement, Ministry of Health meets the infrastructural needs while NITA-U, provides the internet connectivity and IICS Tech shoulders the process of designing, engineering, testing, deploying, training users and maintaining the system.
