Cranium Integrated Solutions Ltd. has introduced app for local content digital health to ease the stress of patient healthcare delivery in the country.
According to NAN reports, Mr Kunle Adesida, an Engineer and Co-founder of Cranium Integrated Solutions Ltd., said at a news conference in Lagos that the all encompassing local content digital health app would address the health needs even to the rural areas.
Adesida said the adoption of digital health was low globally but proper sensitisation of the benefits would ease the challenge of healtcare delivery.
He said that even with the issue of low internet penetration at the digitally under- served areas, Cranium would deliver health with its mobile clinics to be introduced soon.
According to him, it is a local content, because it is 100 per cent customisable to the desire and requirements of the nation’s health facilities.
“The COVID-19 pandemic heightened the need for digitalisation, again, many people started seeing the need to go into this particular area, we have been in this area since 2005.
‘’It took us so many years to put this product together because we needed to ensure that we put in the real case scenario on ground and that is why it is local content.
“Cranium has different levels of health facilities across Nigeria, primary health care centres, private hospitals, secondary and tertiary institutions,” he said.
Adesida said that so much effort was put on the field to ensure the entire patient workflow in any hospital and that was why they had an edge over others.
The co-founder said that with the app, a patient’s vitals could be monitored from the comfort of their homes.
He said the local content had also made it very possible for hospitals to customise to their desires and helped them have full access privileges to the database.
According to him, Cranium is leveraging blockchain and Artificial Intelligence that enables patients access health care and data in any locations or hospital the patient walks into.
The co-founder emphasised that there was need to talk to stakeholders and decision makers on digitisation of hospitals because very soon, hospitals operating manually would go into extinction.
According to him, digitisation of hospital processes would also improve health care because patients would access healthcare from the comfort of their homes.
Also speaking, Mr Tokunbo Smith, Chairman, Supervising Board, Cranium Integrated Solution, said that the firm was also particular about securing the data of patients.
Smith said that for the security patients data, there was the data protection regulation which Cranium strictly adhered to because its compliance remains key in every industry.
According to him, that is why the firm has the data protection regulation and the European General Data Protection Regulation.
He said: “When talking about health, we are talking about sensitive data, data that should not be seen by anybody. So the advantage of using software is that it is efficient and secure.”
Mr Doyin Talabi, a Consultant , lauded the mobile app, saying that it would deliver swift health care to more that half of the nation’s population.
Talabi said that according to Nigeria Communication Commission, there were about 150 subscribers, so as such, more than half of the population would have access to safe and secure health care delivery
