About a year ago Sidmach launched its cloud platform which houses different custom solutions, part of which was the All-Purpose Medical Information System (APMIS). The All-Purpose Medical Information System (APMIS) is an innovative, affordable, Medical Information System which connects all stakeholders on a single platform to harness the values that are inherent in seamless connectivity of health service delivery, education, research and administration.
One of the greatest challenges in the healthcare sector in Nigeria is the poor information management (patients information) which has led to many unwarranted deaths and mishaps in some cases. The importance of an effective communication and a database management system cannot be over-emphasized in the healthcare sector in Nigeria. The usefulness of database technology can never be underestimated; almost every standard healthcare organization today makes good use of it.
APMIS is more than just a hospital information management software. It mitigates the challenges associated with information for hospital owners, healthcare professionals, caregivers, patients, government, health maintenance organisations, intervention agencies such as WHO, UNICEF and other stakeholders in the health sector.
Information management in the healthcare sector is poor especially in the third world countries when compared to nations with the improved healthcare system. APMIS serves as an information system for the healthcare sector for a connected industry where everybody benefits from the value either in the healthcare service delivery, research or even administration.
APMIS is a simple means to capture, store, exchange and utilize healthcare data/information easily, transparently, securely in an affordable low cost (cost-effective) manner using information technology. It solves the problems associated with data/information/knowledge for hospital owner, healthcare professionals, caregivers, patients, government, health maintenance organization and other healthcare stakeholders.
APMIS is more than just an electronic health records (EHR) system or a hospital management software (HMS), it is an innovative Health Information System (HIS) that connects all stakeholders together on a single platform to harness the value that is inherent in our connectedness either for health service delivery, education, research or administration.
