Muluzi made these remarks during a symposium in Lilongwe on Thursday where heath sector donors and Ministry of Health discussed how to level up heath system.
According to Muluzi Health digitalization can bring out a number of successes.

â€śDigitilization of patient health records will improve management of health outcomes and the referral process,â€ť Muluzi said.
Germany Embassy Health Donors Committeeâ€™s Chairperson, Thomas Staiger hailed the initiative saying it will help Malawi in maximizing efficiency.
