Islamabad: July 19, 2021 – (TDI):  The United States of America has initiated a partnership with the Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa to better diabetes treatment. The D-Talk Electronic Medical Records system is aimed to be installed at 20 different provincial health facilities. This is a case-based information management system that will better the availability of insulin for diabetes patients in provincial health facilities.

The Director of USAID/Pakistan’s Office of Health, Population and Nutrition, Dr. Enilda Martin stated in this regard: “USAID is committed to extending all possible support to the Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa for sustainable public health systems in the province.”  KP Secretary of Health, Mr. Syed Imtiaz Hussain Shah expressed: “If we want Khyber Pakhtunkhwa to progress and health services to be on par with the developed world, digitization is the key.” He further added, “Digitizing and having a dedicated management information system for various functions in the department is the way towards e-governance and effective patient management in the future.”

The US government will also provide a system called Asset Management Information System that will automatically update the inventory at these provincial health facilities. It will make the management of inventory efficient and lessen the waste of valuable equipment.
