APMIS: Nigeria’s Connected Healthcare Platform

The All Purpose Medical Information System (APMIS) is Nigeria’s connected healthcare platform.

APMIS is a simple means to capture, store, exchange and utilize healthcare data/information easily, transparently, securely in an affordable low cost (cost effective) manner using information technology. It solves the problems associated with data/information/knowledge for hospital owner, healthcare professionals, care givers, patients, government, health maintenance organization and other healthcare stakeholder.

APMIS is more than just an electronic health records(EHR) system or a hospital management software (HMS), it is an innovative Health Information System (HIS) that connects all stakeholders together on a single platform to harness the value that is inherent in our connectedness either for health service delivery, education, research or administration.

APMIS solves health information needs irrespective of location on the value chain as patient, clinician, hospital manger, state government or even the minister of health. It is built to scale up to be a national platform and subsequently a sub-regional platform for health because health and disease knows no geographic boundaries neither is it a respecter of persons.

APMIS helps hospital owners and managers increases profitability significantly, reducing operational cost and overhead while improving significantly the quality of care and patient satisfaction with service delivery and increasing efficiency of care process.

APMIS empowers the patient by ensuring that the patient or client is able to enjoy continuity of care irrespective of the health institution or entity that provides that care whether it is a rural hospital, a private facility, a state general hospital or a tertiary hospital in the city center, to an international consultation. It provides for the patient access to a lifelong medical record while promoting real time multidisciplinary care provision.

It is wholly 100% indigenous application built by medical personnel to solve healthcare information challenges in resource constrained healthcare environment like Nigeria.

It is backed up with over 25 years of health informatics research and a 10 year development cycle. It is standard based using international standards such as ICD 10 cm, ICD 10 PCS, LOINC, SNOMED CT, ICPN, RxNorm etc.

It consist of  modules focused on clinical care namely user management (inclusive of human resource module), setup, health records, clinic management, ward management, clinical documentation, pharmacy, laboratory, radiology inclusive of a PACS and RIS, inventory (inclusive of medical consumables), telemedicine, payment (e-payment),health insurance, communication (sms, email, voice calls and intra-application alerts), theatre, immunization and blood bank.

It is extremely user friendly with great user experience.

APMIS can definitely be scale down to fit any hospital or other health entity-pharmacy, laboratory or imaging center.

APMIS would allow health institutions institution to be connected to Nigeria finest and best health care institutions and have access to expert consultant in the country or even an international expert consultation irrespective of the health facility’s geographical locations.

APMIS is offered based on subscription based model for support and implementation to help lower the barrier to transforming your healthcare delivery organisation.

It is deployed within the context of a full Health –IT implementation consisting of about 7 cost centers viz:1)User assessment, training and support 2)Hardware: client devices and server 3) network 4) software 5) power 6)digitization of health records 7) soft skills: project management/consultancy.

We are currently implementing in Nigeria largest and most complex health Institution, University College Hospital (UCH) Ibadan. A 955 bed hospital, 750 physicians,250+ consultants, 33 clinical departments, 4200 work staff with an annual patient load of over 165,000 outpatients and over 14000 inpatient admission with over 45 wards and over 10 outpatient clinics as well as other healthcare facilities across the country.

You are an Expert? Help Provide Telemedicine Service to Nigerians!

We Need Experts!!

Without doubt Telemedicine is a veritable tool in transforming healthcare delivery in Nigeria. Telemedicine enables clients to access healthcare expertise/resources without the expert and the client needing to travel to enjoy this service. It has the capabilities to save time,money and space.

As part of our initiative to transform the Nigeria Healthcare space and improve the quality of care to Nigerians, irrespective of their location through information technology, Sabaoth Technologies Ltd have teamed up with Telemedicine and Ehealth In Nigeria (TEN), a non-governmental organization that shares a common focus and objective to provide telemedicine services in a sustainable manner to Nigerians.

We are currently putting final touches to the technical platform and we believe the time is set to build up the supply side of the equation: Finding Experts who are willing to devote their time and energy to help clients in Nigeria who critically need their service without the necessity of them travelling to meet the client or the client travelling to meet them (at least in the first instance). We would bridge the distance using our technology platform with APMIS at the core.

The services provision would include

1) Teleconsultation: This is a a clinical service session which can be done in real time (sysnchronous) or in a store and forward manner (asynchronous) wherein the client information is uploaded in a secure manner and you get to review and make your recommendation as required. Please note that this service includes both laboratory, radiology, pharmceutical, physiotherapy and other allied service as well as core medical consultation.

2) Tele-education service: There is a dearth of clinical expertise across all profession within the healthcare domain. Through this service, you teach a cohort of audience in a manner convenient to you. This again could be done in real time or in an asynchronous manner.

We believe this medium would provide opportunities for colleagues especially those in the diaspora who would like to contribute their quota in helping transform the healthcare indices of this country within the shortest possible  time without the burden to physically travel to Nigeria.

We would be able to stem the tide of medical tourism in a significant manner as our services grows and become mainstream. This service would be offered in collaboration with various hospitals within the country as well as via direct patient enagement.

You would have the choice to decide whether you want to offer your service under a “paid for” arrangement  or pro bono.
