One man’s innovation turns Ugandan hospitals hi-tech

Wednesday, July 10, 2013

Have you ever wanted to know how many doctor visits you make per year or what your annual expenditure on health care is?

If you have, then Clinic Master software, developed by Wilson Kutegeka and others, will enable you to keep tabs on your healthcare expenditure and the number of visits you make to the doctor. Clinic Master, Kutegeka explains, enables the electronic capture of one’s biodata, clinical notes, laboratory requests and prescriptions, when one visits a health centre with the software.

In this way, should one make a request from their healthcare provider, one can access data on a number of visits to a doctor, laboratory visits, prescriptions given and amount of money spent on healthcare quarterly, bi-annually or annually. Whenever one may need this data, it is provided.
