I am very happy to announce that we are bringing a new product in the healthcare sector in Africa, starting with Nigeria. It is a very interesting one because as a graduate of the Johns Hopkins University, health is always in the business. Our product is designed to remove the friction which exists in healthcare management in the continent. It is an Electronic Health Record (EHR) / Electronic Medical Record (EMR) system that is totally structured for Africa.
We are making our EHR/EMR absolutely free to clinics, hospitals, dentistry, labs, insurers, and patients, in our continent. Our solution is a cloud-based electronic health record platform that can support governments, physicians, optometrists, pharmacists, other medical professionals and patients. It is engineered for one-doctor clinic to one that can power thousands of doctors.
Medcera is a web-based EMR (electronic medical record) and EHR (electronic health record) system with patient portal. It provides physicians and medical professionals with EMR/EHR and medical practice management technology that includes charting, scheduling, e-prescribing, medical billing, lab and imaging center integrations, referral letters, training, support and a personal health record for patients.
It supports large and small clinics, dentists, labs, pharmacists, and imaging centers to move their operations into the digital ecosystems where they can increase productivity, lower costs on medical information management, improve quality of care and employee/patient safety. Also, Medcera offers health insurance solution enabling integration of physician, billing, insurance, government receipts and other components of health insurance delivery in one system, at private and public levels. All Medcera systems run on the cloud with no requirement for any installation. It is supported with bank-level security.
Our motivation is anchored on the fact that once a patient has a record with Medcera, every approved health professional will have access to that record irrespective of time and location. So, anywhere you are in the country, provided the entity and you are in the Medcera Network, your records would be accessible. We think this will save lives.
Snapshot of Medcera site
Medcera Fusion: Free, web-based electronic health record (EHR) software for physicians and medical professionals. The EHR system includes medical charting, e-prescribing, clinical decision support advisories, online booking and scheduling, online referrals and messaging. Its lab, imaging, and billing modules integrate with a network of third-party laboratories, medical imaging centers and medical billing service.
Medcera Patient: Personal health record (PHR) system that gives patients access to their prescriptions, diagnoses and test results (as needed). Records update as physicians add information to their
patients’ charts. Consumers can search physicians by location and specialty, request an appointment and also pay hospital bills online.
Medcera Insights: An analytic product based on Medcera Fusion dataset of patient records at population level which is anonymized and aggregated. Real-time data provides perspective on clinical trends and helps with population health management and clinical decision support. Helps governments see disease outbreak as quickly as it happens. It is built with top-grade AI engine that improves population health.
Medcera Connect: A non-EHR designed for non-physicians structured for imaging centers, pharmacies, dentist practices etc making it possible for these entities to connect with Medcera Fusion. The goal is to provide full electronic interface with the EHR for any approved organization in the healthcare sector.
Medcera Premium: This is a paid version of Medcera Fusion which makes it possible to customize Medcera Fusion for a clinic or client. For example, we could have AbaHospital.Medcera.com where the branding will make it possible for Aba Hospital doctors and medical professionals to use that sub-domain to enjoy the services offered by Medcera. With this, the hospital can provide descriptions, logo etc and create a presence unlike the Medcera Fusion which does not allow that. This is optional but could appeal to large organizations.
Pilot (Beta Testing) Recruitment
We are recruiting clinics, labs, pharmacies, hospitals and patients for initial pilots. Simply, we want you to test our solution, offer feedback so that we can fix any issue our previous tests and pilots did not pick. We expect this pilot to take weeks. Please if you know any clinic, lab, dentistry, etc that may be of help, email us at [email protected] . We would setup an account for you and you can use the solution.
Medcera would be launched after this beta testing to the public. To avoid complexity of handling customers, the core engine is sequestered until after the testing. So, you cannot login without us creating and giving you access from the back-end. Once the testing is completed, Medcera would go full live. We really want to have many clinics and entities across Nigeria to participate. Do not try to login now; we can only give you access.
Zenvus Genius Testing
We are also recruiting research entities to test Zenvus Genius. The goal of Genius is to make it possible to detect fake drugs, fake baby foods and other items just by pointing our devices on them. Genius ascertains the compositions of materials anytime and anywhere, through a complex NIR spectrometer, and computational algorithm, via smartphones. Research institutes and universities with food science departments wanted. We have grants to support schools.
