The project is aimed at using Information Communication Technologies (ICT) to improve access to healthcare, raise the quality and reduce cost of health care provision thereby endowing patients in rural communities. It is expected to be executed in alliance with the National Primary Health Development Agency (NPHDA), Primary Health/Public Health Centres in rural, unserved and underserved communities. The project will be designed to provide access to real-time consultancy services between primary health centres/facilities with General Hospitals, Federal Medical Centres and other existing secondary Public Health Centres.

The target is to provide internet access between selected primary health centres and the secondary health centres across the country by 2022. This will be achieved by connecting remote, rural and underserved communities with referral centres, expert care and support training health care providers using ICT. It will also facilitate communications between primary health workers, specialists and patients for improved health care access in rural communities.

Objective

The objective of the project is to harness ICTs to significantly improve the delivery of healthcare services in public primary and secondary healthcare facilities across the country. It is expected that the USPF e-Health Project would lead to general improvements in the speed, quality, and quantum of healthcare services delivery in public health institutions throughout Nigeria.

Service Model

This is a fully funded project. Through open competitive bidding, companies are selected to deploy the appropriate ICT infrastructure and tools to the selected health care institutions.
