Revolutionary AfyaRekod (www.AfyaRekod.com) Universal Patient Portal has arrived in the UK and through partnerships with doctors, various medical organizations and NGOs in the UK is poised to change the face of patient care across the country.
AfyaRekod is a fully automated universal blockchain-powered patient portal that is changing the face of patient care in Africa and the world. Through a secure central platform (www.myrekod.com) patients and the healthcare professionals who treat them have real-time access to all health data and medical history. This ensures efficient ongoing medical care as well as critical timely information in emergency situations.
The brainchild of CEO John Kamara, AfyaRekod was founded in 2019 as an Adanian Lab startup with seed funding from Mac Venture Capital and Next Chymia. Knowing firsthand how a lack of medical records can lead to tragedy, Kamara saw the need for an AI platform that would track health data. AfyaRekod was created with the goal of bridging the gap between health care and treatment anywhere, anytime for patients, healthcare professionals, providers and organizations.
The Universal Subscription-Driven Patient Portal is a consolidated and mobile health passport that enables patients to have consistent access to their medical records, as well as real-time market access to various healthcare services in the ecosystem.
Through AfyaRekod’s universal patient portal, patients can securely manage their medical records, including prescriptions and hospital visit summaries, across multiple devices in any region. In addition, the platform offers a decentralized, multilingual and intelligent telehealth solution, health resources, symptom trackers, reminders and notifications. Any patient can use these tools, it is especially useful for patients with chronic diseases, although parents, pregnant women and patients with hereditary diseases.
The AfyaRekod platform is expanding to include doctors, offering a digital clinic with a B2B platform, a telepharmacy tool and an e-prescribing platform. For providers, the platform has many functionalities, including hospital management, patient management, knowledge management and inventory management, as well as an AI-powered reporting tool that enables organizations to make strategic decisions, forecasting and early identification through data analysis. NGOs and other related organizations can register and manage their target groups on the platform.
In building its UK presence, AfyaRekod recently partnered with Medi-Science, UK. Both companies share a common goal of developing technologies that provide working solutions for people around the world. Medi-Science UK has identified similar critical gaps in healthcare and the partnership will allow both companies to expand their market reach and expand their solution development.
“With the current patient and healthcare management overhaul that the NHS faces, AfyaRekod’s digital health innovation platform is a timely support channel in bridging the healthcare governance and service delivery gap. AfyaRekod Universal Patient Portal is a turnkey solution provider that offers mobile universal access to records for patients and health professionals with the added benefit of enhancing research to achieve a sustainable healthcare and treatment system. The platform offers you control over your health,” UK CEO Michael Ekpechue tells AfyaRekod.
The pandemic has hit the fast-forward button, creating an urgency for the availability and analytics of medical data. This is a global challenge that patient-centric healthcare innovations such as AfyaRekod are successfully addressing. AfyaRekod has over 150,000 users in Kenya alone and has recently launched in Nigeria, Uganda and South Africa.
Medical records are a vital tool in health management, informing healthcare providers about medications, chronic conditions, past problems and procedures and ultimately allowing them to determine the most accurate course of treatment. Misdiagnosis is serious and can delay treatment of the actual condition. An IOM report published in 2015 indicated that in the US, a country with a well-developed health sector, about 12 million cases of misdiagnosis occur each year. Misdiagnosis can be prevented, but only if medical records are accurate and mobile.
