Telnet partners with the Ogun State government on healthcare


Telnet is breaking the frontier in the provision of healthcare management solutions in Nigeria. Our HealthNett solution is assisting state governments in the setup, administration, and operation of a health insurance scheme that would be beneficial to most citizens especially those in the rural areas.

In the bid to curb maternal and infant mortality rates among its vulnerable citizens and ensure that the people of Ogun State are provided with affordable, sustainable and efficient healthcare; the Ogun State Government, with Telnet as technology partner, on Tuesday, April 29, 2014, rolled out the Ogun State Community Health Insurance Scheme (OGHIS). His Excellency, Governor Ibikunle Amosun, while unveiling the programmes under the scheme tagged “Gbomoro” and “Araya” in Abeokuta, said the provision of efficient healthcare was one of the cardinal points of his administration.

Telnet personnel were on hand to register the first beneficiary of the scheme, in the person of His Excellency, Governor Ibikunle Amosun, followed by other dignitaries. Telnet is the sole solution provider and technology partner for this scheme, while the scheme will use the mobile payment platform, PiDO for payment of the yearly premium.
