eHealth policy

A joint effort of the Department of Information Systems (DoIS) and the Ministry of Health (MoH), this plan was released in 2013. The plan details the creation of an electronic medical records system, including a patient and doctor portal which is fully integrated with primary healthcare systems as well as hospital health information systems. The plan also builds on the need for comprehensive infrastructure for inter-ministry and inter-departmental exchange of data. Strong emphasis is placed on promoting modularity, adaptability and usability of health information systems to improve patient care, as well as oversight and governance.
