Hlthera, a pioneering healthcare technology company, recognized a significant opportunity to address the growing healthcare gap and revolutionize healthcare access in regions with limited medical services. Their platform, Hlthera Engage, aimed to combine traditional and digital healthcare services through a comprehensive ecosystem, including a wellness app, healer connections, and telemedicine consultations. This endeavor sought to bridge the healthcare gap by ensuring access to quality healthcare services and continuity of care in underserved regions.
Limited Access to Healthcare Services: Globally, only 39% of people in some regions had access to quality healthcare services, leading to untreated illnesses, reduced quality of life, and economic consequences.
Lack of Technical Skills: Many telemedicine platforms lacked user-friendliness, hindering utilization. The absence of standardized Electronic Health Records (EHRs) and their integration with telemedicine platforms resulted in inaccurate documentation, with physicians spending excessive time on EHR duties.
Privacy and Security Concerns: Storing patient data on the internet raised privacy and security issues, with one-third of doctors concerned about the privacy of their patients' data.
Hlthera addressed these challenges through a multifaceted approach:
Comprehensive Healthcare Ecosystem: Hlthera developed an integrated platform, Hlthera Engage, that combined digital and traditional healthcare services. This ecosystem not only provided easy access to healthcare services but also ensured data continuity and accuracy.
