On Wednesday, the 30th of June, 2021, the management of Usmanu Danfodiyo University, Sokoto welcomed a new Health Maintenance Organisation (HMO) allocated to it to oversee healthcare delivery in the University’s clinic. This happened after the deregistration of the previous HMO assigned to the university.
The newly allocated HMO, known as Ultimate Health Management Services Limited, is specialised in standard healthcare delivery, proper management, consultancy, data sourcing and utilisation. They will monitor the implementation of Federal Government policy on healthcare reform amongst others, all within the guidelines of the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS).
The Vice-Chancellor, Professor Lawal Suleiman Bilbis, as well as the three Deputy Vice-Chancellors, the University Bursar, the Director of University Health Services, the Dean of Students Affairs and the Assistant University Principal Officer, convened a special meeting with the newly allocated HMO at the Ahmadu Bello House located in the university’s permanent site, where they discussed issues of critical importance and as well outlined sectors of interest in the discharge of their duties.
“We urge you to deliver your services with dedication, credibility and resilience,” the Vice-Chancellor said.
The Managing Director of the organisation, Mr Lekan Ewenla, expressed his satisfaction with the approach the Vice-Chancellor took to ensure due diligence and active service delivery from the HMO.
“I promise the university management the best for the trust the management has in us, and this task shall not be taken lightly,” he said.
He also highlighted areas of priority they will venture into during the discharge of their duties.
“We will generate [a] new database for all staff members and students of the Varsity, and we shall take into consideration, the TSHIP scheme, sensitisation, and other healthcare benefits packages,” he added.
