In June 2014 Medicaudit installed a computer network and computers donated by Rotary Doctor Bank. They gave training to key staff to implement a programme of patient registration and management of dispensary, laboratory, stores, etc. This has had a marked impact on the efficiency of hospital administration and their income has risen significantly without increasing patient fees.
