Nairobi-based eHealth startup, Zuri Health, has announced the launch of its mobile app which is expected to facilitate its mission of providing affordable healthcare to Kenyans by making it easier to reach medical doctors.
A statement that was seen by Business Elites Africa quoted the startup’s Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer, Arthur Ikechukwu Anoke, to have said that the app will specifically be of help to Kenyans in underserved communities.
“Zuri Health is very personal to me. Millions of people in Africa do not have access to quality medical care. At Zuri Health we have taken time to develop a product that will fill that gap, giving doctors a wider and easier platform to reach patients who need them. With Zuri Health the underserved populace can now access affordable and sustainable healthcare,” Arthur Ikechukwu Anoke said.
Users of the Zuri Health App can instantly book appointments with doctors either for hospital or home visits. Users can also book appointments with lap technicians for laboratory tests, even as the pharmacy section of the app makes it easy for users to purchase their prescription and over-the-counter medications and have such delivered right to their doorsteps.
Note that the also comes with an SMS functionality with the aim of reaching a wide spectrum of users, including those who may not necessarily have access to internet-enabled devises.
Established in 2020, Zuri Health recently laid out its 3-year growth strategy which entails having more than 20, 000 medical doctors registered on its platform, having at least 250, 000 premium users, and at least one million downloads of its mobile app.
