Korle Bu CEO Dismisses Revenue Leakage Concerns
Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital Prof. Effua Hesse, has dismissed fears of possible revenue leakage at the Hospital following a decision to discontinue the use of an electronic revenue management system.

Speculations are that authorities at the hospital intend to revert to use of manually operated system.

Prof. Effua Hesse However said, "there's no way the hospital management or board would ever go back to the manual systems".

Merchant Bank introduced the electronic revenue management system in 2009 which resulted in a sharp increase in the hospital’s revenue from GH¢13.3 million in 2009 to GH¢27 million at the end of 2012.

Linus Kumi, Senior Relationship Manager at Merchant Bank, told Joy News they received information from the Controller and Accountant-General's Department that the management of Korle-Bu would not want to continue using the system anymore.

He said the Bank was only told that the hospital was having problems with the system without further explanations.

Although the Bank has requested to be told the nature of the problems for possible resolution, Linus Kumi said Korle Bu is yet to make that information available.

But Effua Hesse said the hospital is only adopting an "on-site electronic revenue collection", which according to her, is the new trend in other hospitals and government agencies.
