The government will roll out a telemedicine programme to improve access to healthcare, particularly in remote and marginalised regions. The highly skilled health care workers’ distribution in Kenya is skewed towards urban areas leaving rural areas poorly staffed. This disproportionate distribution affects health infrastructure as well. So far, about 20 health facilities have received approvals from KMPDC to offer telemedicine services. The ministry has developed a digital health platform to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of services offered in health facilities while at the same time improving accountability. The platform will enable real-time collection of patient data and provide platforms for integration with other critical databases. The telemedicine project will be rolled out on this platform.
