COVID 19: COVID Connect Service

The University of Ghana Medical Centre (UGMC) in collaboration with PharmAccess Foundation (GNBCC Member), has introduced a virtual monitoring app with a back-end Care Coordination Centre at the University of Ghana Medical Centre (UGMC) that gives subscribers access to needed clinical support from a team of medical experts and specialists. 

The digital health service, launched on April 23, 2020 at the UGM, seeks to address all COVID-19 related issues that clients may have by giving them easy access to high trained medical specialists at the UGMC from the comfort and safety of their homes.

Luscii, a Dutch company in NL, designed the app which has also been approved by the Dutch Min of Health. The app is currently deployed in NL, Ireland & Ghana. It will be deployed in Nigeria and Kenya next week. There was 1000+ clients/patients in Ghana within 3 weeks of the app's launch with MoH and the University of Ghana Medical Centre, which is the hospital designated by Ghana’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs for the diplomatic community.
