A firm, Evoke e-Health Solution, says it is poised to offer second medical opinion to improve health outcomes in Nigeria and the West African sub-region.
Dr Ifeoma Obianozie-Amadi, a co- founder of Evoke eHealth, at a telehealth practice pre-launch event on Saturday in Abuja, described the company’s services as secure, simple and very affordable.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the reality of 2020 and the challenges that occurred during the pandemic had raised questions about what the future holds for healthcare delivery.
This reality had driven digitalisation and innovation in healthcare delivery across the globe to enable prompt response to the COVID-19 pandemic and other health emergencies.
NAN also reports that the development and implementation of telemedicine and digital health innovation had offered great value for both practitioners and patients.
Obianozie-Amadi said the company had no boundaries in offering community services, equal medical opportunity and quality healthcare services to patients in the country.
Obianozie-Amadi said Evoke eHealth solutions would offer high-quality telehealth technology that would enable virtual consultation and treatment to eliminate time and distance between remote patients and their providers.
According to her, the company is committed to delivering innovative technology solutions to securely connect patients and providers and to enable the collaboration of medical professionals.
This, she said, would be through the facilitation of research, education, and communication in the medical community.
Dr Anthony Oketah, Managing Director and co-founder of the company, said the organisation is leading the way in innovation with a full range of solutions to meet the requirements of different environments.
“For many patients, access to high-quality medical care can often be complicated by financial, geographical, or situational hurdles that can dictate when, where, and even whether those patients can seek physician care.
“Evoke eHealth solutions are designed to overcome those hurdles by providing access to professional healthcare services, regardless of the patient or physician’s location,” he said.
Oketah said that the company would eliminate time and distance factors in healthcare delivery for remote patients by enabling real-time examination and treatment through a virtual consultation
NAN reports that on the sidelines of the pre-launch, some experts spoke on the potential of digital health, AI integration in healthcare, opportunities for digital health and telemedicine for the insurance industry and telemedicine and digital health regulation in the country.
They also discussed insurance policies and reimbursement as a key concern in telemedicine and eHealth partnerships.
They further highlighted the role of insurers in the health ecosystem and the well-being of Nigerians. (NAN) (www.nannews.ng).
