The Takoradi hospital run by the Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority has eliminated paper use after a year of testing the Health Management System (HMS).
The Sekondi/Takoradi Metropolis has designated the GPHA hospital as the ideal healthcare center for specific healthcare requirements.
The GPHA management’s strategy plan included the Health Management System (HMS) to further position the healthcare institution as a top-tier provider of healthcare services.
The Human Resource Manager at the Port of Takoradi, Peter Amoo-Bediako at a ceremony said the GPHA hospital boasts of qualified health personnel in addition to the hospital being equipped with specialized medical equipment to provide quality healthcare services.
The Head of Health Services, Dr. George Tawiah Tidakbi said the introduction of the HMS paperless system will help reduce material cost and improve turn-around-time for clientele.
The Hospital Administrator, Dr. Ellen Naa Tettey said the HMS paperless system will help the hospital perform efficiently.
According to Dr. Tettey this fact is attested to by clients who have praised how streamlined the hospital’s services have become.
Selected personnel in the various sections of the hospital who were taken through skill training to be abreast with the HMS paperless system were awarded for their outstanding performance throughout the training period.
