S.S.B. Provides Computers for Accident and Emergency at K.H.M.H.

The Accident and Emergency Department at the K.H.M.H. received a much needed donation from the Social Security Board. Computers valued at five thousand dollars were handed over to help the unit improve efficiency in the processing of patients data leading to improve health care. On Friday the C.E.O. of S.S.B. Doctor Colin Young made the presentation to Doctor Adrian Coye, C.E.O. of K.H.M.H.

“How this came about is a little interesting and a very important part of the story. A staff member from Social Security commented that on a visit here, the nurses had to be waiting in turns to access the computer, I think, in the accident and emergency and also in the Asthma Bay. So, she came and approached us and asked would we consider making a donation to Karl Heusner.”

“The way this will help us, obviously, as you were saying, more access to the health information system which is a major clinical tool for the country. The Ministry of Health developed that package and we at Karl Heusner use that tool and so with the access we will be able to use it better. The feature about is the DVD drives because at the end we are able to use the drives to receive imaging and from what we print from our CT Scans and things like that and the imaging is what we use to make diagnoses, etc.”

“Dr. Coye and I have had conversations, we want to look at developing a closer partnership with the largest hospital in Belize so that they are the service provider and SSB is the social insurance provider. I am sure that there are lots of ways we can strengthen our partnership for the benefit of Belizeans. This assistance came out of what is call the Social Assistance Development Account. It is an account administered by the Social Security Board.”
