Uganda: Mulago to Computerise System


David Nuwamanya the Assistant Commissioner for Support Services at Mulago National Referral Hospital says the hospital is in the process of transforming the whole supply chain system from a manual system to a digital system.

Nuwamanya says the purpose of computerising is to ensure efficiency in service delivery in the hospital. He says the hospital will introduce a digital clock in system where all health workers will be required to clock in at different intervals; this will help reduce on cases of absenteeism at the hospital.

Bateerana Byarugaba the Executive Director of Mulago says there have been many thefts at Mulago hospital and the hospital hopes that digitalising the system, some of the thefts will reduce because accountability will be strengthened.
