Egyptian startup, Yodawy seals partnership with MedNet Egypt to offer Egyptians digitised healthcare

The cairo-based health-tech startup, Yodawy has announced its partnership with MedNet Egypt to offer its insured members easy and digital access to their prescribed medications.

With this announcement, MedNet members will now be able to order their insured and prescribed medications for delivery from Yowdy’s easy-to-use online platform.

This partnership aims to serve thousands of insured members and facilitate the process of dispensing insurance medications online through more than 2,000 licensed pharmacies across Egypt within the Yodawy medical network.

Commenting on the partnership, Dr. Hisham El Shazli, The General Manager of MedNet Egypt explains that the partnership was established to provide prompt medical access to everyone.

“2020 has been a challenging year for everyone, to say the least. Healthcare is at the center of everyone’s attention. With such an unprecedented increase in awareness and demand for better healthcare services, tech-based innovations are offering invaluable solutions. The Covid-19 crisis has made many patients and health care recipients more present in their homes, which obliged all parties to the medical insurance to strive to provide home delivery for all health care services.”

To use the service, intending MedNet users can simply download the Yowdy app and complete a one-time-only registration, MedNet insurance members will be able to access their monthly medications and place an order for them. Besides, members will be able to upload a doctor’s prescription and obtain approval in a few minutes.

The new partnership eliminates the need for MedNet insurance members to visit pharmacies to obtain their much-needed medication.

The Yodawy platform uses state-of-the-art artificial intelligence to ensure that prescription approvals and orders are secure and orders are then sent directly to the nearest licensed pharmacy to the user which in turn delivers the ordered medication to a user’s address.

Karim Khashaba, CEO of Yodawy, explains that Yodawy’s mission is to offer tech-based innovations and online tools that will make medical services easier and better for Egyptians.

“cooperation with leading healthcare companies is what will provide the opportunity for millions of patients to get better and easier medical service, and this is what we have already started implementing when we cooperated with MedNet, which is one of the largest health programs management companies in Egypt.”

Yodawy currently provides healthcare services to over 1.5million users in Egypt and it’s on a mission to improve access to healthcare in Egypt.
