Project Overview

The Ministry of Health is in the process of gradually transforming the management of medical imaging to a more digitally enabled environment, though the deployment of Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS). PACSs are expected eliminate the need for exposing physical x-rays, developing, and printing of such, which already have become obsolete or moreover, unavailable. HIs are taking a lead role in strategizing, planning and implementing of these systems, while collaborating with clinicians, radiologists, and administrators. Once PACSs are implemented they will cater to the needs of patients and ensure that they receive comprehensive, high-quality and efficient care.
