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.
