Alright, so now that we know that telehealth works, what is next? 

The healthcare system in the middle east has been notorious for poor reviews. Patients have been complaining of poor quality, long waiting times, and unnecessary complications for a very long time. However, providers have not been responding to that, with the argument that technology that may make healthcare simpler and more affordable can also make it suspect to data privacy issues, identity theft, and abuse. 

Well after 2020, and the extreme effectiveness of telehealth and remote care, this is not the case anymore. There is no doubt that this is the future, but where will go from here? What comes next after telehealth?

DRAPP teleconsultation

Today’s featured company is DRAPP, with its ambition to improve the doctor-patient relationship by providing the best tools for teleconsultations. 

In the video below, Omar Shaker interviews Hady Bsat, CEO of DRAPP. Watch the video for more.

Here are some takeaways:

🧑‍⚕️ DRAPP is made for doctors to monetize and organize their patient journey. It returns the controls for doctors. It is messaging-based and allows doctors to open a video call when they see it necessary. They believe that patients don’t just want to speak to anyone, they want to help them improve their existing relationships.

🔍 DRAPP is not a one-stop shop! It is focused on improving teleconsultations by itself. 
 🇱🇧 🇪🇬 They started in Beirut and established now as a local entity in Cairo to serve the Egyptian market. 70% of their doctors are Lebanese but patients are using DRAPP from 60 countries around the world. Jordan is a potential next step along with the GCC. 

🧑‍💼 They have signed with City Clinic with Seha Capital. They will be starting their marketing campaign this month. 
💰Hady is raising $600k with some initial commitments. You can contact him here:  [email protected]
