Electronic Patient System
T he patient file in St. Kizito consists of a paper version that goes with the patient. The hospital is holding a carbon breakdown. They are stored centrally. As a result, it is not possible to view the file in all places and there is a lot of work to collect the files when patients come to the outpatient clinic.
St. Kizito also still does the administration almost entirely on paper. As a result, it is not yet possible to invoice electronically, while this is the requirement of the Tanzanian government. In the summer of 2023, St. Kizito will have to switch to a new Electronic Patient System, so that they can send declarations for the care they have provided. The E-health system GPITG has been chosen.
The infrastructure (electricity and network cables) to be able to work with an EPD has been installed (phase 1). Now the computers must be purchased to work with and the employees must be trained in the use of the computers (phase 2). Then the EPD is installed (phase 3).
