Many hospitals in Africa lack basic equipment because they simply cannot afford it. We constantly hear stories of people dying in hospitals not because they were chronically ill but because the hospital lacked the necessary infrastructure to properly treat the patients. In comes Medical Devices As a Service (MDaaS), the startup that’s providing affordable and high-quality healthcare infrastructure to clinically underserved Africans.
They have built a network of private diagnostic and primary healthcare centers that offers radiology, cardiology, and lab services across Nigeria first, with the plans to expand to other parts of the continent.
By introducing software, being smarter about process design, investing heavily in an integrated supply chain, and sharing resources across locations, MDaaS has significantly dropped the cost of setting up and operating each center.
