GenKey’s healthcare solution has been shortlisted for the ‘Solution of the Year Award’ in the category ‘Awards for Technology and Solution Providers Operating in Africa and/or Exporting to Africa’.
The Africa Healthcare Awards are rewarding excellence and achievements in the field of African healthcare provision; as well as recognizing new international solutions and technologies that have the potential to create positive change in Africa. The awards are judged by an expert and high profile panel of judges that consists of senior management from African hospitals, Ministries of Health, healthcare providers, NGO’s and leading African distributors.
“We’re delighted to have been shortlisted for this prestigious award and to have our healthcare solution recognized as an important solution for changing Africa’s healthcare”, says Michiel van der Veen, CEO of GenKey. “The implementation of our unique biometric solution has shown to have a huge impact on the healthcare system in Ghana, offering long-term benefits”, he continues. “A clean member database, instant ID card issuance, biometric verification at healthcare providers and claim verification are contributing to huge cost savings, fraud reduction, better member management and continuous improvements in the efficiency of the NHIS in Ghana. Other national health insurance schemes in Africa would greatly benefit from such implementation as well.”
The Africa Healthcare Summit 2016 Awards Ceremony will take place on the evening of February 17 at the Hilton Kensington Hotel in London.
GenKey will participate in the Africa Healthcare Summit with a conference presentation on Day 1 and a booth at the exhibition.
