Collaborating with world-renowned communication companies, the department has diligently forged a digital infrastructure that seamlessly interconnects all hospital departments, expediting communication among healthcare professionals.

Significant milestones have marked the evolution of the Clinical Informatics Department. In 2016, the creation of the Chief Medical Informatics Officer (CMIO) role heralded the establishment of the Clinical Informatics Department, encompassing the Nursing Informatics Team (NIT), Medical Informatics Team (MIO), and Administration Informatics Team. This multidisciplinary approach ensures seamless collaboration between medical staff and the Information Technology Team (IT), optimizing the delivery of healthcare services and driving data-driven decision-making.

The department's impact extends beyond internal operations, as evidenced by the hospital's achievement of HIMSS level six, a first in Africa. Spearheading a series of groundbreaking projects, including Computerized Physician Order Entry (CPOE), PowerChart Oncology, and Patient Portal (Ana57), the Clinical Informatics Teams have consistently elevated the standard of care and operational efficiency.

Notably, the department's dedication to continuous improvement has led to the successful implementation of projects such as upper managers Dashboards, Cerner-Oracle Integration, Children's Cancer Hospital Early Warning Signs (CCHEWS), and Bedside Medical Device Integration (BDMI), among others, all aimed at enhancing the quality of services provided to patients.
