Taiwan Assisting St. Kitts and Nevis in Establishing Hospital Information System, Launching Citizen Medical Information Card

As part of its ICT Technical Cooperation Project in St. Kitts and Nevis commissioned by Taiwan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the TaiwanICDF is exploiting Taiwan’s impeccable experience of medical management and ICT-related advantages by assisting staff at Joseph N. France General Hospital (JNF) in establishing a hospital information system (HIS) and introducing standard operating procedures, thereby improving overall standards of care at a key national hospital.

Although JNF is St. Kitts and Nevis’ most important health institution, the only procedures already employing fully network- and computer-based processes are outpatient registration and wholesale accounts, while all other procedures still rely on traditional manual paperwork. In addition to requiring more time to complete, such manual processes are more liable to give rise to errors, affecting the quality of medical services.

As part of the project to date, functions and barcode-based input operations for registration, clinical services, pharmacy operations, inventory management, electronic prescriptions, pharmacy prescriptions and payments for the HIS have now been completed.

January also saw the official launch of a citizen medical information card, marking an important milestone in the adoption of specialized barcode-scanning technology and identity recognition functionality from Taiwan. In addition to lowering the chances of human error and reducing operation times, the introduction of a card common to all of the country’s public health institutions will allow citizens to enjoy health care services at much greater convenience.

About 60 key figures attended a ceremony marking the launch of the card, including the prime minister, the minister of information and technology, and the minister and vice-minister of health.

Speaking at the event, Prime Minister Denzil Douglas stressed that a health care system is employed for the welfare of a country’s people, and said that his government’s promotion of health care information systems was designed to improve public health, reduce the pressures involved in seeking medical treatment, and enhance the effectiveness of hospital operations. Prime Minister Douglas also thanked the Taiwanese government, and in particular the Taiwanese embassy in St. Kitts and Nevis, and acknowledged Taiwan’s significant contribution toward enhancing St. Kitts and Nevis' health care environment, expressing his best wishes for long-lasting relations with Taiwan.
