Remote healthcare monitoring is now a reality in Ghana.

Equity Health Insurance, a Ghanaian healthcare insurance provider, has teamed up with Clinitouch, a United Kingdom-based remote patient monitoring platform, to launch the technology in the West African country.

Through this platform, patients can now remotely record their symptoms and input relevant health readings, such as blood pressure or blood glucose levels.

The companies say that this helps clinical teams to quickly spot any changes in the patient’s symptoms, so they can get the care they need sooner.

With the first patients already on-boarded, it is anticipated this service will continue to be rolled out across Equity Health Insurance’s clinics, with plans to collaborate with other accredited health service providers to extend the service to the wider Ghanaian population.

“As an indigenous organisation, Equity Health Insurance’s goal is to continuously improve healthcare, driven by patient needs and satisfaction,” said Elton Fredrick Afari, CEO of Equity Health Insurance.

The expansion to Ghana marks Clinitouch's fourth collaboration in Africa with projects launched in South Africa, Namibia and Nigeria.

In total, digital health projects using Clinitouch technology are now being designed across 13 countries and five continents.

“Launching this project is a huge milestone for the Ghanaian community and together, we have the opportunity to make a real, long-lasting difference to many lives,” said Bruce Adams, Commercial Director at Clinitouch.
