Besides Zambia, OTI’s South African subsidiary will deliver the technology to Kenya, South Sudan and Uganda.
“OTI’s advanced solutions offer securer treatment for patients, access to medical information, reduction in medical errors and adverse events,” said Shlomi Cohen OTI Chief Executive Officer.
