Worried by lapses in the Hospitals revenue collection system and determined to ensure a secured and faster way of revenue collection, the Management of the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital recently sent a select group of staff of the Finance and Audit department on a week – long training on the use of an automated revenue software package.
Declaring the training open, the Chief Medical Director of the Hospital, Dr. Peter Alabi said the manual mode of revenue collection leaves much to be desired and was no longer fashionable. He said “In the todays world of to technological advancement in virtually every field, this hospital cannot afford to be left behind.” The CMD charged the participants to rise to the challenges and opportunities provided by the training to help stimulate the revenue profile of the hospital. Dr. Alabi said the new computerized system of revenue collection would help simplify the work of the participants.
The automated revenue software designed by DONAK Computers Limited generates receipts, stores and keeps track, summaries and reports of revenue receipts by the cashier. Speaking on the initiative, the Assistant Director of Finance, Mr. Nimfa Zwalbong thanked Management for the decision to computerize the revenue collection system and promised on behalf of users to make the project a success. In a remark, the representative of DONAK Computers Limited and course facilitator, Engr. Ofordile Tony-Okeke assured management of adequate and effective support service to ensure that the overall objective is attained.
