SonoCare

Posted By Graymatterscap On Thu, Nov 22, 2018

SonoCare is a Nigeria based health tech start-up providing services spanning the spectrum of women’s health such as on-demand mobile 3D/4D diagnostic imaging and cardiac monitoring among others.

Offering both fixed site and mobile solutions, SonoCare provides cost efficient programs scaled to the needs of hospitals, satellite clinics, health care providers like physicians and midwives, birthing centres, assisted living facilities as well as corporate offices using a combination of the most advanced imaging systems and highly trained, registered technologists as sonographers.

Investment Rationale:

With one in thirteen women in Nigeria dying during pregnancy and childbirth, and a vast majority of such deaths occurring in rural areas, Gray Matters Capital saw SonoCare’s mobile diagnostic medical imaging solution that leverages technology and innovation as a solution to the lack of affordable and easy to access diagnostic care services in Sub-Saharan Africa.

With our funding, SonoCare would develop a mobile app and deploy more mobile units to cater to 200,000 pregnancies by 2020.
