The Federal Government has given approval to the Ministry of Health to launch the electronic system for the National Health Insurance Scheme e-NHIS to enable the NHIS and other public stakeholders manage patient claims.
The “e-NHIS” system, an electronic medical and management system will enable the NHIS and other public stakeholders to manage patient claims, as the Federal Government moves to digitalize service delivery.
This was disclosed by the Federal government on Wednesday via its official Twitter handle. The system vendors would be Galaxy Backbone Ltd and NIGCOMSAT.
The tweet reads, “The Federal Ministry of Health today got approval for a project to introduce “e-NHIS”: an electronic medical records & Mgt system for NHIS”
“The System will allow interoperability with all public & private sector stakeholders – to manage patient records & claims.
” Vendors: NIGCOMSAT & Galaxy Bone Ltd.”
The approval to digitalize records of the NHIS comes after President Muhammadu Buhari directed the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) to ensure the enrolment of corps members in the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS).
