How Greymate Care is changing the lives of the elderly in Africa

Published

on

Tell us a few words about the founders and how the idea came

Greymate Care was co-founded by Ogochukwu Obi (COO), registered nurse with over 6 years experience, Chika Madubuko (CEO), astute business professional with experience from multinationals such as Amazon UK and Guinness Nigeria, and Remilekun Dosumu (CTO) who handles all the technology innovation within Greymate Care.

Greymate Care was born out of a personal pain experienced by one of the co-founders, Chika, whose family could not find time to care for their grandmother who had been bedridden due to diabetes. Even when they opted for a paid caregiver, it was difficult to find a regulated marketplace to find them and were exposed to safety and security risks as the caregivers had not been background checked nor trained.

CancerMate From Italy, A New Frontier in Cancer Prognosis

Published

on

Tell us a few words about the founders and how the idea came

Cancer treatments are frequently inaccurate as they can fail to precisely match with each specific patient/disease coupling. CancerMate (formerly CAPTURE) is an application that applies to this complex scenario of cancer growth and fight: we aim to reduce the cost of cancer treatment for the society as a whole. Heading to convergence of diagnostic imaging, assay data and biomathematics, we aim to computational prognosis of tumors. Built for oncologists and surgeons in hospitals, and researchers in pharmaceutical and health care equipment industries, CancerMate is a game-changing tool, inspired by human physiopathology: CancerMate empowers the informed decisions on possible outcomes and optimal response to therapy, for each situation at stake.

Your products and services 

CancerMate casts a portal of cancer proliferation and its fighting drugs within the representation of a real patient’s body. Featuring a multiplicity of tuning parameters, as consolidated and validated by the interaction with medical doctors and researchers, CancerMate facilitates the administration of the most promising clinical therapy to the specific situation.

Starting from diagnostic images of a given avascular cancer in a real patient, CancerMate models can run at low cost on standard desktop computers, any proliferation/therapy scenarios on that patient’s replica with our virtual reality (VR) engine. With this, CancerMate predicts the evolution in time (into days or months ahead) of that particular cancer, under a number of hypotheses (such as the choice of a VEGF inhibitor, whose pharmacokinetics/dynamics features can be computationally available). Currently tested in relevant environment (a real hepatocellular carcinoma, and several hon-Hodgkin lymphomas), CancerMate creates immersive experiences when complemented by head-mounted-displays for augmented reality (AR), ultimately enforcing medical doctors’ judgement-knowledge on the therapy outcome.

Your success factors 

Cooperation with IRCSS-CROB (the Oncological Hospital of the Basilicata Region @ Rionero in Vulture – Italy) is currently ongoing. We were selected among the most successful enterprises by INNOLABS project (Horizon2020) being rewarded a Proof of Excellence.

Your factors differentiating and disruptive compared to the existing 

With its easy-to-use graphical front-end and VR/AR ability, CancerMate can provide easy access to every tuning knob and disease outcome in 3D representations, for unparalleled informed and immersed decision strategies in personalized oncology. CancerMate will also yield a more favorable economic outcomes for the health administration bodies: down to about 30% in some cases of breast cancer, for example, when the surgery is avoided due to therapy optimization.

Your business model (how do you make money?)

CancerMate‘s value chain is described by the following list of reference stakeholders:

    • cancer patientship, who is the final indirect beneficiary of the product, but obviously cannot operate directly on the product
    • clinical and research oncologists, who will use CancerMate to improve the administration of the best personalized therapy. Using VR/AR before and after chemotherapy, the models predicts how well the drug is working and compares with similar cases
    • oncological surgeons, who will use CancerMate to visualize outcome and surgery environment. Knowledge of the sites of tumor spreading significantly impacts on the decision whether to treat partially on entirely (ie. for breast cancer, partial lumpectomy or mastectomy)
    • pharmaceutical and chemical researchers, involved in therapy research, who will exercise CancerMate to increase their ability to validate their findings and create in a totally-sustainable way new pharmaceutical formulations, to greatly reduce the time to clinical deployment
    • health care device industries, involved in diagnostic imaging, who will ship CancerMate alongside their rig to increase their ability to new immersive situation for clinical doctors and surgeons
    • hospital and health administrations, that will be interested in the economy outcome generated by CancerMate, yielding for significant savings when the optimal therapy is administered

All models generated with CancerMate will reside in the cloud on one or more servers. Access and use will be done through a user profile, for free (trial) for 1 month, or by a fee-for-service model. Possible subscriptions will be based on packets of hours of use (up to 50 hours, CancerMate-Flat50, up to 100 hours, CancerMate-Flat100, or else without limits, CancerMate-Premium).

A few words about your competitors

To date, the only project that may compare directly to CancerMate, is the “Oncosimulator P-medicine” (http://p-medicine.eu/tools/oncosimulator/). Developed in the 2011-2015 period, the project has been carried out by a broad partnership that involved, among others, universities institutes, biomedical companies, softwarehouses and clinical institutes. The Table below unfolds the differences and analogies between “Oncosimulator” and CancerMate. It is seen that the later only will allow for significant reductions of predictions costs, requiring much less maintenance effort with respect to its alternative, and offers true personalized analyses based on its ability to work on patient’s diagnostic images.

SASAdoctor : a Virtual Healthcare Consultation App

Published

on

The founders are Kenyans living in Canada. One is an Accountant and the other is a practising MD.  They both felt the need to give back to the community and felt making healthcare accessible to everybody would be the best way. Currently, only 12% of Kenyans are insured and Another 8 million are on NHIF. That leaves almost 35 million Kenyans without any sort of insurance.

SASAdoctor aims to give the best quality of healthcare at the best and most affordable price. For as low as Kes 495, one can consult with a medical professional from anywhere at any time using the SASAdoctor App.

Statistics have it that 65% of Kenyans have access to a smartphone and in the next 5 years upto 80% will have access to a smartphone

SASAdoctor is a Virtual Medical Care; an exciting new medical venture which seeks to provide accessible and affordable, high-quality medical care to Kenyans.
SASAdoctor, presently an Android only application, allows patients to visit Kenyan trained and supervised medical doctors and clinical officers on an Android App via live video conferencing. This live face to face medical consultation will result in an assessment, diagnosis and if necessary, a signed prescription, a requisition for investigation, a signed sick note, or a referral to a specialist; all this documentation will be delivered right into the App. Every Kenyan will now be able to carry their entire personal medical record, maintained by a medical professional, in their SASAdoctor App on their device.
Key features of SASAdoctor Virtual Medical Care include:

1. Affordability: Consultation as low as KSH 495 and free for those with insurance.
2. Kenya Wide Coverage: Availability to all Kenyans who have an Android smartphone or tablet.
3. Personal Medical Record: Patients will have a record of their past medical history, medications, investigations, and doctors’ visit notes in their SASAdoctor App on their phone.
4. Good Medicine: SASAdoctor promises to practice good medicine by;

  • Not over prescribing: Our doctors recommend only the necessary medications. There is no incentive for them to overprescribe.
  • Not over-testing: Our doctors order only the necessary tests. There is no incentive for them to over test.
  • Being available on demand: After signing on to our App and registering, you will connect with a doctor within 8 minutes or your next visit will be free.
  • Providing quality assurance: Our Kenyan accredited doctors and Clinical Officers will be rigorously vetted and be continuously trained in the latest quality assurance standards and procedures.

The consultation fee is shared between the business and the medical professionals in the App depending on how many consultations they are involved in per month.

Our current competitors do not offer a holistic approach like us. They either offer web consultation or medicine delivery. We offer both services in one go. We have also partnered with chemists and labs that will offer drugs and lab work at the best price in the market
