The Tupua Tamasese Meaole Hospital went live, earlier this week, with their new Electronic Health Record System.

The new system will replace the old paper (file) based system and is expected to provide quick access to accurate, up-to-date and complete information of a patient’s medical history.

The new and improved record keeping system is expected to help the MOH provide timely and quality healthcare service to the public and provide routine evidence performance of Samoa’s health services.

The public has been advised to expect longer wait times as they make the transition, and to bring their COVID VACCINATION CARD or Birth Certificate to make the record search easy.

The project is a collaborative initiative with the Government of Samoa, World Bank Pacific, Depart of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT, Australia), New Zealand’s Ministry of Foreign, Affairs and Trade (NZMFAT), Beyond Essential Systems, and the Australian High Commission in Samoa.
