In Summary

  • The e-mobile app targets public hospitals, especially in the remote areas to ease procurement of medical supplies from Kenya Medical Supplies Authority.
  • The system eliminates the red tape that slows down ordering of the supplies at the grassroots, ensuring health centres are well stocked and avoid cumbersome paperwork.

Medical supplies agency has revamped its e-mobile application meant to ease service provision to local hospitals, in a fresh attempt to woo counties to adopt the platform.

The Kenya Medical Supplies Authority (Kemsa) had launched an earlier version in 2013, but its roll-out stalled following the devolution of healthcare services to the counties.
