Sudamed's simple tech solution for the healthcare sector

Friday, 25 July 2014.

Political instability and civil unrest have long prevented many countries in Africa and the Middle East from developing the efficient medical services that they desperately need. Things could soon be changing, though, as one young David looks set to revolutionise the healthcare systems of not only its native Sudan, but also Ethiopia, Kenya, Lebanon and Jordan.

Sudamed, which aims to improve access to healthcare by listing the locations and opening times of hospitals and other medical practices, has signed up more than 2,000 healthcare providers since it first launched in 2011. And by charging institutions to list extra information like doctors' names and telephone numbers, the company has managed to turnover $500,000 in 2013 alone.

25-year-old Sudamed founder Dr Khalil is also attempting to address severe cash flow problems within the Sudanese medical system. With medical insurers taking up to six months to pay providers for their services, the Sudamed Wafir discount card gives patients 50% off medical fees when they pay up front. Somewhat impressively, over 10,000 cards have already been sold.

Sudamed is now looking for $300,000 in additional funding to expand their model further into east Africa and the Middle East. Given the company's hugely successful first few years and its success at the MIT Pan Arab Startup Competition last week, it seems like only a matter of time before the world's pharma Goliaths come knocking.
