Redbird Health Tech is changing the way patients interact with the Ghanaian healthcare system to better combat the rising burden of non-communicable chronic diseases. Redbird leverages the existing skills and infrastructure of pharmacies and over-the counter (OTC) chemists to create more convenient health testing options for all patients, especially those with chronic conditions.
Redbird enables pharmacies and OTC chemists to perform on-site rapid testing for the diagnosis and monitoring of health conditions, bringing healthcare closer to the patient, improving patient involvement and identifying adverse health outcomes when corrective action is still possible.
Redbird offers patients a wide range of health monitoring services with the benefits of convenience and affordability as they can get rapid diagnostic tests done for blood pressure, malaria, anaemia, hepatitis B, cholesterol, etc. via community pharmacies. These pharmacies can expand their business and provide patients the benefit of monitoring their health more effectively without having to lose a full day of travel and waiting at overcrowded hospitals.
We are excited to support Redbird’s efforts in making health monitoring services more accessible to mothers and families which need them the most and its potential to significantly reduce risks of pregnancy complications and maternal mortality is what drove our investment decision.
