Helium Health is building the digital infrastructure that will power world-class healthcare services across emerging markets. The company is on a mission to accelerate Africa’s transition to a technology and data-driven healthcare sector.
The company is leveraging the vast amount of data we are amassing through their solutions to empower healthcare providers to run more efficiently and make better decisions with actionable data. Public health stakeholders will also be empowered with detailed insights into health-related trends to enable proper resource allocation and oversight. Nationwide data concerning the state of health of citizens would be available in real-time at the touch of the fingers.
Helium Health was founded in 2016 with its flagship product, Helium Health EHR, which is a cloud-based/offline health records and hospital management (EHR/HMIS) solution that is simple, robust, easy-to-adopt, highly customizable, and built around the peculiarities of emerging markets. Today, Helium Health is the premier Health Tech Company in Africa, providing a suite of cutting-edge technology solutions for all healthcare stakeholders in emerging markets. The solutions include HeliumPay (a billing and payments solution that will help healthcare facilities accept payments from multiple sources), HeliumCredit (a quick and easy way for hospitals to access instant, collateral-free loans).
The company’s vision to power Africa’s healthcare technology necessitated rapid expansion to cover the region. Helium Health is helping 5000 medical professionals to provide care to over 165,000 patients monthly across emerging markets.
Helium Health has been inducted into the Forbes 30 under 30 healthcare class of 2019 and the CNBC Upstart 100 Class of 2019. The company was also inducted into The Future Awards 2018 Class for Technology and was nominated for the Nigerian Healthcare Excellence Awards in 2017 and 2018. Helium Health participated in the Google Launchpad Class 5 of 2018 and Ycombinator in 2017. In 2016, Helium Health was recognized with an Etisalat (9Mobile) Prize for Innovation and was recognized by the Nigerian Presidency during the Aso Villa Demo Day.
At Helium Health our audacious vision is to build the digital infrastructure that will power a new age of more efficient and data-driven decision making in healthcare across emerging markets. That vision requires a lot of help and support from like minded partners and investors.
Regardless of the country or region, healthcare is an industry that is notoriously hard to disrupt. It is almost never at the forefront of technological advancement and it is a tragedy because unlike most industries, every human being will come into full body contact with a healthcare provider either when you are born, die or whenever you fall sick in between. The Covid-19 pandemic has reiterated that healthcare is incredibly important to the normal human existence and letting it fall behind is detrimental to our shared way of life.
This is why our vision is so important and why we are incredibly grateful to have the support and resources of Chandaria Capital pushing us toward our goal.
