‘Digitalisation’ll improve health outcomes, sustainability’
THE Chief Executive Officer, Rejuvenate 360 Limited, Mr Onyekachi Agudosi, has said that digitalisation will improve health outcomes and patients care.
Agudosi said this during the inauguration of the Rejuvenate Learn Health Initiative recently in Lagos.
He said the initiative was designed to help individuals and communities to improve their overall health by increasing their attitude for better health through a professional learning platform.
“We have seen situations where people do not know what to do when a doctor is not reachable to give them adequate information on what to do in an emergency. This led me to introduce the initiative The purpose is to enable you learn what do when the doctor is not available,” Agudosi said.
He added that the initiative would mentally prepare the people for an epidemic, provide an insight on proper dieting and nutrition, advocate quality care and health care financing.
“To move the conversation forward and to reshape the narrative, we need to start taking care of the primary health care. This includes understanding infection and control, understanding diseases and having the basic knowledge of health care enterprise.
“We are giving access to health care practitioners. If someone is trying to find basic information about health care or the nearest hospital, it should free. Also, we are trying to push the conversation forward because digitalisation is here to stay. There is always a way forward and it is strategic innovative and disruptive,” Agudosi said.
The Country Manager, Health Connect 247, Dr Uche Udeozo, said digitisation would address the unsatisfied needs in the health care industry.
He said, “Digital health technology can increase the patient to doctor ratio and improve health outcomes of patients. Remote access means less chances of contracting a disease due to reduced exposure to patients under treatment in a health care facility.”
