Dr. Wallace said, "The infusion of technology into the healthcare system in Nigeria is one that will certainly increase efficiency, save costs and entrust trust between patients and their healthcare providers. Ultimately, this is the goal of eClinic, among other benefits.

As a flexible tool, eClinic was created to serve a range of healthcare providers, from small, single care providers to multi-specialist facilities, making it a well-rounded platform tailored to the varying needs of healthcare providers, and complementing existing systems.

The solution was designed with three layers of care providers in mind: the eClinicPHC, which was designed for primary care providers, and the eClinicPlus, designed for secondary and tertiary care institutions, reducing cost for health service providers and retaining data integrity and security.

With the relaunch, the eClinic solutions have new features integrated into it, such as inventory and stock keeping, patient appointment and queue management, medical and insurance billing, assets management, integration to third-party systems via API, quick messaging and notification, medical coding, backup and multi-location support, among others, patients are assured of an improved healthcare delivery process when they walk into their preferred care provider for health-related matters.

Through eClinic, we are integrating inventory keeping, efficient service delivery, sales and accounts receivables into one platform. By doing so, service delivery process is streamlined, and productivity is boosted."

eClinic was developed with specialised modules that function at various clinical levels such as antenatal and immunisation, aggregating data from different centres and providing a single front for enterprise capabilities.
