In four months time, clients seeking Health Services in Nyamira County will be served electronically, County Health Executive Committee Member Mr. Douglas Bosire has disclosed.

Speaking in his office after going through a ratified memorandum between his County and Sub-county Health Management Team and the Partners,  Mr. Bosire said the move to go paperless was long-overdue.

According to Mr. Bosire, the idea had been mooted five years ago, but was put on hold because a workable framework had not been arrived at yet.

“Under Governor John Nyagarama’s leadership and blessings, we can now direct our County Health Management Team (CHMT) and Sub County Health Management Team (SCHMT) alongside our partners to move ahead since we have taken a common stand to embrace the use of Electronic Medical Records (EMR) as a quick way to serve our clients in the chosen facilities,” Bosire said.

The health boss said partners had identified  9 health facilities both from Government and religious institutions, where they will roll out the EMR pilot project and later cascade the same downwards.

According to Bosire, Nyamira County Referral Hospital tops the list of EMR beneficiaries.

All the 5 sub-counties have been captured for consideration by the partners and the CHMT team.

The Sub-county hospitals in the list include Keroka, Manga, Kijauri and Ekerenyo.

The Health Centers include Nyansiongo, Ting’a, Tombe, and Nyamusi.

“The move to embrace EMR will assist Doctors, Clinical Officers, Nurses and even our Partners in making timely and urgent clinical decisions,” Bosire added.

Bosire noted that EMR will further help in the collection of monthly reports and in computing both simple and complex clients data.

Addressing the CHMT and SCHMT groups at Borabu hotel, Kenya Integrated Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (KIWASH) Governance Specialist Benard Chepkwony, Palladium HMIS Adviser Fridah Oyucho alongside her Implementation and Coordination expert Benard Ajwang hailed the move saying it will be a timely one even as they move in to offer capacity building and trainings of the medical personnel.

EMR Adviser Francis Kimonye, said partners will support in ensuring that the EMR rolled out becomes a success ahead of full implementation of the entire project. “The county health management team must therefore give their best in the use of EMR project”. Said Kimonye

According to Kimonye, the infrastructure will be sponsored by  Afya Ziwani but implemented by PATH and PALLADIUM.

“We will fully support trainings and capacity building to the CHMT &SCHMT staffs and give infrastructural support. We will also babysit the trained personnel to maturity and compliance,” he noted..

Health Department Assistant Director David Osumo who was sitting in for the Director of Medical Services Dr.Jack Magara pledged compliance  from the CHMT teams.
