Safaricom starts pilot of mobile health records system

Wednesday 14 April 2021 | 14:19 CET | News
Kenyan operator Safaricom has partnered with Nakuru County to help improve health services for over 100,000 people through an integrated electronic medical records programme. Named Afya Moja, the programme is a mobile-based digital health passport that receives and securely stores patient information. It allows users to access a copy of their own health information and share it with trusted health providers. It allows doctors, upon consent, to have access to patients' medical backgrounds and therefore respond better to their needs.
