The Medical Laboratory Science Council of Nigeria (MLSCN) has launched online registration of medical laboratories in Nigeria, encouraging stakeholders to take advantage of this new system to improve service delivery.

At a gathering with stakeholders and advisors of MLSCN in Abuja, Dr Tosan Erhabor, the registrar/chief executive officer, promised to boost efficiency, transparency, and the speed of service delivery, as well as data collation and management, with Prof. Anthony Akpan from the University of Calabar  (UNICAL) chairing the meeting.

Mrs Fidelia Ginikanwa, head of the public relations unit, declared that the gathering was meant to allow stakeholders to observe and potentially assess the digitalisation of the medical laboratory registration process, which he stated was the most recent amongst the MLSCN processes to be shifted from the manual to the digital platform.

“Despite its meagre resources, MLSCN has successfully transformed other processes including Licensure, Examination, Indexing, Accreditation Service, and External Quality Assurance (EQA) among others, and now the e-registration of medical laboratories”, he said.

He encouraged medical laboratory proprietors to collaborate with the council to improve service delivery, and expressed confidence that they would now be able to register their laboratories quickly and conveniently, without having to travel to the council's headquarters in Abuja.

“I am pleased to note that automation has raised our profile among stakeholders, and we must commend the consultants for a job well done,” he said.

The lead consultant praised the council for transitioning their manual processes to digital ones in order to improve service delivery, even in the face of economic hardship.
