ROLL OUT OF HMIS AND BIO-METRIC REGISTRATION TO SUB-COUNTIES AS KAPSABET REAPS FROM THE SAME AUTOMATION
County’s department of Administration, public service and e-Government is working towards automating Service delivery across all the departments in the county. It has recently integrated technology into human resources management and health management among other key Service areas.
The automation of the recruitment process and employees management is championed with the roll out of Human Resource Management System integrated with Health Management Information System (HMIS) as a bigger number of county employees are based in the department of Health Services.
This has necessitated bio-metric registration and personnel information verification of all the the county employees. This exercise is ongoing subsequently in all sub counties and currently done in Nandi hills Sub-county.
Today the Chief Officer for ICT and e-Government Jonathan Misoi, together with his counterpart in charge of Administration & Public Service- Philip Towett, a representative from County Public Service Board Daniel Mwogoi and the ICT directors visited Nandi hills sub county hospital.
They were checking the ongoing progress of the bio-metric registration. The team also assessed the preparedness of the facility ahead of the roll out of HMIS which is currently operational.
The system has immensely transformed service delivery in Kapsabet County Referral Hospital.
During the visit, Chief Officer to Administration and Public Service Philip Towett, pointed out the anticipation of improved performance, productivity and the overall effectiveness in the delivery of services.
This will enhance better management and planning strategies brought about with automation spearheaded by County’s ICT sub sector.
Misoi highlighted that with success of this technological transformation across all county departments, the citizens can be assured of service delivery brought about with the efficiency in operations, management and mobilization of available resources.
He added that most departments are currently enjoying the success brought about by automation. Apart from HMIS and HRMS other systems are currently in place.
Useful systems such as County Call Center program, Asset and Inventory management, Revenue system with self service business registration portal, Bursary system, Fleet Management system, DigiFarm &DigiCow and County Projects Management System will soon be rolled out.
