Renowned health insurance company Equity Health Insurance has extended its support to the Redbridge School of Healthcare Management, a Nigerian-based company, hosting a comprehensive study tour.
Redbridge School of Healthcare Management, as part of the study tour, presented fifteen (15) senior staff of NNPC HMO Ltd., a health insurance company operating in Nigeria, to engage and interact with the health insurance industry in Ghana.
According to the CEO of Equity Health Insurance, Elton Fedrick Afari, this initiative seeks to bridge the gap between theoretical knowledge and practical application in healthcare management, fostering a deeper understanding of the industry and its challenges.
Equity Health Insurance, known for its dedication to promoting accessible and high-quality healthcare services, saw this partnership as an opportunity to contribute to the development of the next generation of healthcare leaders. “We recognized the importance of a well-trained workforce in addressing the evolving challenges of the healthcare industry.”
Speaking about the study tour, he said, “Aside from enhancing the team’s knowledge about health insurance policies, claims processing, and the financial aspects of healthcare management, topped with understanding the importance of quality control, patient safety, and compliance with healthcare regulations in Ghana, the tour provided them with valuable networking opportunities.”
The tour had participants visit Equity Health Insurance’s facilities, interact with healthcare professionals, engage in practical exercises and gain access to firsthand successes, challenges and best practices to grow the health insurance market
