iDHS launches digital platform for quality care

 

Going by the successes it recorded in the United Kingdom (UK) and the United Arab Emirate (UAE), a British based company has initiated a digital healthcare platform in Nigeria, with a view to raising the quality of care accessible to the populace in the country.

According to the Founder/Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of iDHS, the digital healthcare platform, Princess Elizabeth Eweka-Adeshina, the company, Integrated Digital Healthcare System (iDHS) Limited, was launching its services in Nigeria to ensure that the populace have access to quality care both within and outside Nigeria.

Presently, Nigeria loses about $1 billion U.S. dollars annually to medical tourism and top executives of the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) and their counterparts in the health sector are concerned about reversing the trend.
By expanding the services into Nigeria, she said, it was part of making the dream of iDHS African vision a reality.

 

According to her, going by the state of the nation’s facilities, the shortage of medical professionals and poor infrastructure, the quality of care in the country has dropped drastically; hence the need to initiate new vision about healthcare to save lives and improve quality of life for Nigerians.

She said iDHS was the first web- based healthcare platform in West Africa, adding that the platform involved online text, Audio & Video health consultation with a Global pool of General and Specialists medical doctors and other healthcare practitioners both in United Kingdom, UK and United States, US.

According to Eweka-Adeshina, the platform: www.idhshealthwise.com allows for easy referral of patients to specialist doctors and other medical practitioners, hospitals, pharmacists and diagnostic centres.

Other benefits and advantages of seeking services from iDHS digital platform are that in-country doctors would similarly have access to a global pool of doctors to gain, share and transfer medical knowledge and plugging leakages that occur with multiple cash payment options via the platform.

The CEO of iDHS explained that in conjunction with major players in the health sector such as the Federal Ministry of Health (FMOH), “Our services would be readily available and affordable at all functional Primary Health Centre nationwide.

“The protection of all users on our platform is very important to us. We are able to confirm that we have deployed several measures to reduce the risk of fraud and unveil any potential fraud on iDHS.HealthWise.”

She said “Users who don’t physically require an examination can have a consultation online.

“Following consultation online, the patient can be directed to the right place for follow up care.”

According to the founder of iDHS, patients’ medical records were digitalised and therefore readily transferable.
iDHS would be offering Nigerian clients United Kingdom (UK) and American medical doctors, consultants and specialists, depending on the request of individuals.

She said, there would be “Self-care modules to support those with chronic health conditions like diabetes, hypertension, kidney disease, arthritis, asthma and others.

Apart from prescriptions issued by medical doctors on the platform, Eweka-Adeshina said, “There would be health insurance policy for seamless end-to-end healthcare service via our platform.

“Various support features for pregnant women and those requiring support to conceive.”

Speaking further, Eweka-Adeshina said, “There is also health Insurance policy for seamless end-to-end healthcare service via our platform and prescriptions are issued by medical doctors on the platform. There are also support features for pregnant women and those requiring support to conceive.”
