Sterling Bank partners foundation, others to host Digital Health Summit
Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the bank, Abubakar Suleiman said the collaboration is aimed at transforming the country’s healthcare sector for better service delivery in the area of digital platforms.
Speaking at the summit in Lagos with the theme Leveraging mobile technology for Health: Progress and Challenges, the CEO stated that government alone cannot achieve the much desired innovative technology and enhancement of data collection that can make healthcare services across the country accessible.
Suleiman said: “Our approach is to use our influence and resources to bring all collaborators in the sector together to brainstorm on the way forward through a sustainable collaboration that is digital based.”
“Our operations are based on three pillars. We have an agile mind, we have a digital platform and we also have specialist skills. We are bringing the specialist skills we have to the healthcare sector using the digital platform. So we will find the parties that can make it digital.
Dr. Niyi Osamiluyi of Premier Medical Systems said: “The summit aims to encourage collaboration and create connections between investors, development partners, government agencies, other stakeholders and startups.”
Country Director, PharmAccess Foundation, Ms. Njide Ndili noted that the summit brought people together to solve the problems of the sector, as well as provide finance that would take it to the next level.
