Minister Agyemang-Manu said the digitisation programme was an important tool of the government to improve efficiency in the health sector. HeFRA’s assessment standards for inspection and mobile online information system (MOIS) was launched in Accra yesterday.
The platform, which will operate under the web address www.heframois.com, will be used for the submission of applications and relevant documents of health facilities online. It will also enable health facilities to schedule inspection, facilitate the verification and renewal of licences, make online payments and ensure the management of data, statistics and reports. The agency said the platform would increase the efficiency of its operations by streamlining the services of HeFra.
The launch was in line with international best practices, according to the Registrar of Health Facilities Regulatory Agency (HeFRA) Dr Philip Bannor said the agency’s methods of inspecting healthcare facilities were inadequate, adding that with only eight offices across the country, it became burdensome for managers to travel.
