A technology firm is trying to accelerate the growth of Nigeria’s healthcare industry by digitising health.
“We’ve seen that telemedicine can actually change the face of the healthcare system,” Tito Ovia, co-founder of Helium Health told the BBC.
“Now having these teleclinics in certain areas and certain local governments where patients can walk in and video call a doctor who might be in a different state – that can ensure that you’re able to provide access to care for more people and ensure that people in the far-flung rural areas are still able to access doctors.”
