Lightwave Health Information Management System (LHIMs)

A nationwide electronic medical record and patient management system LHIMS was lunched by the Ministry Of Health (MoH), in order to offer Ghanaians a paperless form of healthcare delivery. The deployment of the system is managed by Lightwave eHealthcare Services to link all hospitals, clinics, health centers including Food and Drugs Authority and Ghana Health service.

Implemented in November 2020, the hospital has migrated from using manual folders to the LHIMS software. Patient’s are no more expected to carry folders from one service point to another. Some major functions of the system include managing Electronic Medical Records, Lab Management and Pharmacy management.  Some benefits of the system include;

  • Reduced waiting times at service delivery points
  • Support clinical and public health services at all service delivery points of the healthcare system
  • Provide a 360 degree view of a patient’s health by pulling in information from all departments 
  • Securely share information with patients and their family caregivers over the Internet and Mobile Phones.
  • Help doctors diagnose health problems sooner and reduce medical errors.
  • Support exchange of data across the public-private healthcare systems
