As part of efforts to support the Kano state government and reduce the COVID-19 cases and deaths in Kano, an international telemedicine provider, Mobihealth has partnered with some stakeholders in the country to provide telemedicine consultation in the state.
This gesture is aimed at protecting healthcare workers and citizens by providing access to telemedicine consultation to curb the further spread of the disease.
The service will enable doctors to diagnose, conduct investigations, treat and remotely monitor patients for general medical problems.
It will also help to decide the order of treatment for COVID-19 and non-COVID-19 related illnesses.
The telemedicine consultation is organised by 9mobile telecoms provider and Mobihealth international.
They have partnered with the Association of Resident Doctors of Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital, AKTH, SHYO, and Northfield Health Services, to fight the COVID-19 pandemic and other health care challenges in the State.
Speaking on the partnership, the chairman of 9mobile, Nasir Bayero, explained that citizens and residents of Kano would have access to highly-trained and experienced medical doctors for primary care consultation via web, app, voice or video call from the comfort of their homes simply by downloading Mobihealth Consult App or dialling to the toll-free lines for consultation.
He said, “Mobihealth’s telemedicine service marks a new beginning for the people of Kano because it provides them access to doctors both in Nigeria and diaspora.”
