Social Welfare Minister Rashed Khan Menon launched the country’s first electronic diabetes patient registry recently.
The listed information in the electronic system will help deliver quality care for patient living with diabetes through analysing epidemiology, says a press release.The electronic registry will be implemented through the institutions of Diabetic Association of Bangladesh (BADAS) and its affiliated associations across the country with the support of Novo Nordisk.
Diabetic Association of Bangladesh’s (BADAS) Secretary General Md Sayef Uddin and Novo Nordisk’s Senior Vice President Frederik Kier signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to develop the registry in December 2017.
As a chief guest Rashed Khan Menon said, “The launching of the nationwide electronic diabetes patient registry is a big milestone for Bangladesh. This initiative will bring benefits for patients living with diabetes. I want to give a special thank you to BADAS and Novo Nordisk.”
