OGOW is an electronic medical records (EMR) and practical management system designed specifically for hospitals in Somalia. Our primary goal is improving the delivery of healthcare through collaboration, innovation and efficiency.

The EMR application is a first of its kind system that provides innumerable benefits to health-care practitioners with essential tools to improve: quality, continuity, assessment, and evidence of care through improved management.

Having real time access to historical patient records, allows doctors to quickly identify past conditions and current treatments at the individual level. It also allows them to see trends, in particular population centers, to be better prepared for possible epidemics or outbreaks.
