GenKey, a leading provider of end-to-end solutions for securing identity in Healthcare, has announced that it will supply its Healthcare Solution to Kenya’s National Hospital Insurance Fund (NHIF). The solution comprises an electronic healthcare information management system, including a biometric smart card solution for member registration, identification and verification and a healthcare management system to generate electronic claims at the hospitals. GenKey is also planning to include a core insurance application for processing claims at the NHIF.
An article in GenKey says the company will be delivering all hardware, software and training and support services together with local partner Munshiram International Business Machines (MIBM). Michiel van der Veen, CEO of GenKey says “We are very excited about this project, which aims to facilitate the Kenya NHIF with an accessible, affordable and high-quality health management information system that will help increase efficiency and curb fraud.” He believes it’s an important milestone for GenKey, and hopes it brings them closer to being the leading provider of digital healthcare solutions for Africa.
Biometric registration of 4 million NHIF members and dependents commenced on the 1st of September 2015. This is an exiting time for eHealth in Kenya.
