First patients use Clinitouch technology for chronic condition management in Ghana

Patients with hypertension and diabetes in Ghana can now monitor their health from home, in a project that represents a major step forward for healthcare delivery in Ghana.

Accra-based Equity Health Insurance is transforming access to healthcare in Ghana with remote monitoring technology. The service, which launched last month, is being offered to at-risk patients through Equity Health Insurance's network of clinics.

Dedicated to bringing care closer to home, the leading insurance provider has teamed up with us and our remote patient monitoring platform that has over a decade of proven results in the UK’s NHS.

Through the app, patients can now record their symptoms and input relevant health readings such as blood pressure, or blood glucose levels – all from home. This helps clinical teams to quickly spot any changes in the patient’s symptoms, so they can get the care they need sooner.

At a time when it can be difficult to travel to regular, in-person clinic appointments, this technology is paving the way for better access to both frequent and convenient high-quality healthcare.

With the first patients already onboarded, this service will continue to be rolled out across Equity Health Insurance’s clinics, with plans to collaborate with other accredited Health Service Providers to extend the service to the wider Ghanaian community.

Elton Fredrick Afari, CEO of Equity Health Insurance, commented: “As an indigenous organisation, Equity Health Insurance’s goal is to continuously improve healthcare, driven by patient needs and satisfaction.

"Our innovative collaboration with Clinitouch exemplifies our dedication to improving healthcare outcomes for our community, using an innovative approach to deliver excellent customer-centric services, in a cost-effective and timely manner.”

Bruce Adams, our Commercial Director, added: “Equity Health Insurance’s passion for delivering better healthcare through collaboration and harnessing health technology is exactly what we look for in a partner.

"Launching this project is a huge milestone for the Ghanaian community and together, we have the opportunity to make a real, long-lasting difference to many lives.

"I am looking forward to seeing this service being rolled out to patients across the country, and a further extension to our collaborations across Africa.”

This announcement marks our fourth collaboration in Africa and closely follows our launch into Tasmania for a variety of long-term conditions. Since our Partner Program’s debut in 2023, we're proud to say that Clinitouch is now partnered with organisations in over 13 countries and designing digital health projects across five continents.
