Health Facility Monitoring and Accreditation Agency is set to introduce a Health Facility Inspection Tool called ‘HealthFIT’ to enhance efficient inspection and monitoring of health facilities in the state.
The Executive Secretary, Dr. Abiola Idowu, who disclosed this on Friday at the training in partnership with PharmAccess, said the android-based mobile application is designed to facilitate effective monitoring and inspection of health facilities.
She added that the pilot scheme for the mobile app commences immediately after the training and will run for two weeks.
“Some officers in the agency have been selected to test-run the mobile application during the daily monitoring and inspection activities of the Agency,” she noted.
According to Idowu, the officers are expected to record their observations on its functionality and efficiency.
Highlighting the features of the mobile tool, Idowu stated that the app supports geographical location mapping, collates data on quality service delivery and includes a web interface for users’ access with dashboards highlighting defined indicators and pre-specified analysis.
She further expressed confidence that when the application is fully operational, healthcare facility monitors and inspectors in the state will have the benefits of turning-in credible and objective reports with faster and seamless operations.
On the benefits of the training which she said was for Facility Monitors, Inspectors, Administrative, Public Affairs and ICT officers, she continued, would go a long way in enhancing staff productivity.
While expressing gratitude to the foundation for supporting the training, Idowu reiterated the agency’s commitment in achieving the vision of the present administration in bolstering the health and well-being of the citizen.Follow us on social media
