Kenya’s Afya Rekod Raises $2 Million Seed Funding to Digitise Health Record
In Africa, health records and information are still recorded using pen and paper and locked away in files and storage rooms. In most cases, patients can only access their personal files during hospital visits and don’t have the power to walk away with their files in hand. This is problematic as it blindsides external doctors from accessing patients’ records for medical attention in emergency cases.
Afya Rekod, a Kenyan healthtech startup solving this problem by creating a platform that digitally collects and stores people’s health records, has closed a $2 million seed funding to scale its product and expand into new African markets.
