New Horizon, an information communication technology company, in conjunction with 19 students of The Bells University, Ota, concluded the installation of an app that will allow clinic management easier.
Tagged: ‘Bells Clinic Management System,’ there is hope that the app will help to solve a lot of problems.
Speaking during the launch, the Vice Chancellor, Bell, Prof. Jeremiah Ojediran said it is the right thing at the right time and for a good purpose.
“The linkage between the industry and academia is totally absent in this country. In advanced countries they fund things like this without anybody begging them,” he said.
Justifying the need for the app, the varsity don said, “Parents complain about bill, so with this App, parents will be able to see how many times their children visited the clinic and what was wrong. Sometimes also, you want a patient details, the App will help out. In fact, it’s going to solve a whole lot of problems for us.”
On his part, MD, New Horizon, Mr Tim Akano advised the students to start building Apps for other schools.
“You are not too young to be successful. In the digital world, life ends at 40. Start thinking about what you can do to make money. Every problem you see in Nigeria is an opportunity for you to make money, just figure it out. You don’t need to study computer science to be ICT savvy,” he added.
He said the management was more impressed because the project team consists of students of the 200, 300 and 400 levels in the university and from diverse disciplines which includes: Computer Engineering, Accounting, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Mechatronics, Architecture, and Civil Engineering.
