President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has announced that some hospitals in the country, will go paperless before next year, 2020.
According to him, Ghana had made significant strides in ensuring improved access and quality of healthcare delivery to citizens and adopted some technologies to make it possible.

He said, “We are also leveraging the use of technology with some of our healthcare facilities before the end of the year, going paperless”.
President Akufo-Addo said, “one of the major ways technology has been adopted to improve healthcare in the country is the roll-out of the first phase of the medical drone delivery service which is part of the development of a comprehensive healthcare package to ensure access to health services in our remote areas.”
“We have launched the world’s largest medical drone delivery service to some 15 health facilities as part of the first phase of the service,” the president added.
