Information & Communication Technologies
The Information and Communication Technologies Chapter is key in supporting the hospital’s management, ensuring efficient day-to-day operations, such as patient flow and general administration. With strong ICT management, more patients can receive more efficient medical attention.
Alfred is passionate about serving the community of his birth and contributing to the Lacor Hospital’s vision and mission. He says that since the hospital data increases every year, there is a need for an offsite/cloud backup plan to handle routine automatic storage and recovery of data safety in cases of data losses or disaster. There are also other important needs, like setting up a meshed fibre network within the hospital to maintain constant data access to the servers, establishing a dedicated Virtual Private Network (VPN) to the hospital’s three health centres (Opit, Pabbo and Amuru) for unified real-time patient management, and installing a backup Internet connection in case the existing one goes down. Alfred and the IT staff require skills training to keep the hospital up-to-date with constant changes in technology.
