Title : The effect of electronic health records (EHRs) to hospital acquired infections (HAIs) in Nigeria

Abstract:

The effect of Hospital Acquired Infections HAI is a global concern affecting 5% to 15% of Developed countries, however the situation is more critical in developing countries and in Nigeria in particular reporting about 45.8%. Patient’s susceptibility, mode of disease transmission, hospital hygiene and poor patient record-keeping are amongst factors that affect spread of HAIs in hospital. This study intends to x-ray the effect of an Electronic Health Record (EHR) on the reduction of the infections, haven observed that most hospitals in Nigeria still have poor record systems (mostly manual). Using structured questionnaires, this study will collect data from all public hospitals (including patients and caregivers)within the Federal Capital Territory (Abuja), Nigeria. Using correlation and regression analysis, this study will ascertain if and to what extent HAIs are influenced by EHRs.This study will in no small measure give a background study for the need for electronic records and also ways of reducing alarming rate of HAIs in Nigeria.
