“The essence of the Smart Health Information Platform (SHIP) is to enhance E-health in Lagos state so that we can go global. We have done a pilot where we have data so what it does for the state is that it allows you to have a single source of truth meaning that you have a data base. When people go to the General Hospital, we cannot say we treated x number of malaria, we should be able to have that data.
-Dr. Obafemi Hamzat
Deputy Governor, Lagos state
