According to the CEO/Founder, Dr Funmi Adewara, a Cambridge trained NHS Physician and Bioscience Entrepreneur, digital revolution bodes well for the adoption of Telemedicine;  Africa has about ½ billion mobile subscribers with >40% smart phone penetration. Nigerians spend >$600 million USD monthly on data and airtime,  >$1bn annually on medical tourism. The time is right for Africa to embrace telemedicine as a smart way to mitigate against the impact of brain drain, reduce capital flight from medical tourism and importantly reduce morbidity and mortality. Our telemedicine mobile clinic solution is specifically designed for rural resource poor areas and will be manned by trained local healthcare workers but largely supported by our telemedicine medical experts.
