Implementation of an efficient digital health care delivery system in Nigeria


Health care accessibility has been identified as one of the major indicators of development in Nigeria Health care system. The importance of the availability of adequate health care facilities in providing sustainable development can therefore not be over-emphasized. Contrary to some opinions, it has been agreed that lack of basic health care facilities have led to inefficiency in production, declining productivity, reduced life expectance and increased infant mortality rate. This study addresses the major challenges facing the development of an access control model and produces an access control framework, targeting these challenges that will permit access control for information distribution in Nigeria’s healthcare systems. The problems confronting Nigeria’s Healthcare Systems are inability to produce a centralized NHMS record keeping system, share or exchange patients clinical data online, securely manage / coordinate patient clinical profiles dynamically and abolish manual hand-to-hand data transfer that has exposes the patients’ Information to myriad of attacks. The model is designed with the capabilities of handling homogeneous and heterogeneous systems that uses variety of schema, operating systems and database applications at any location of the healthcare system so that users are able to read but not able to update the data at another location for security reasons.
