The management of Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) has announced their decision to go 100% paperless.

In a press statement signed by the Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Oheneba Owusu-Danso, the hospital hinted that the final phase of its computerized system which took effect on August 1, 2020, has been operationalized.

The statement further noted that clients will no longer be handed paper folders when they visit the hospital for medical attention. This latest development is in line with the Presidential Computerization Project of health institutions which is being implemented through the Ministry of Health.

According to KATH, the operationalization when completed will ensure the speedy delivery of healthcare to clients. This will also allow the timely capture, retrieval and analysis of patients’ records and remarkably enhance clinical decisions for quality patient care.
The hospital also announced that the computerization of all clinical activities is meant to make the operations of the hospital paperless and improve the quality of clinical care to the public.

The management of KATH appealed to the general public to fully cooperate with the hospital to ensure a complete, smooth and successful roll-out of the project.
The management also expressed their gratitude to President Akufo-Addo, the Ministry of Health and other stakeholders for their continuous support.

This roll-out makes KATH the second Teaching Hospital after the Cape Coast Teaching hospital to achieve this feat.
