The block-chain-based, Kenya-based health technology company AfyaRekod has unveiled the world’s first completely automated universal patient portal, which will revolutionize patient care in Africa and beyond.

Patients and the medical professionals caring for them will have real-time access to their health data and medical history through a secured central platform, ensuring appropriate continuous medical care and crucial rapid access to information in an emergency.

AfyaRekod, the brainchild of CEO John Kamara, received seed funding from Mac Venture Capital and Next Chymia in 2019 and was established as an Adanian Lab start-up.

When a buddy passed away as a result of receiving the incorrect medical treatment during an emergency, Kamara witnessed firsthand how a lack of medical records and static data could result in bad medical management.

In order to bridge the gap between health care and therapy for individuals, medical professionals, providers, and organizations, Kamara created an AI platform that would track health data.

Medical records are an essential tool for maintaining health, alerting healthcare personnel to prescriptions, chronic conditions, prior issues, and treatments, finally enabling them to choose the most suitable course of therapy. Misdiagnosis can delay the treatment of the true ailment and is a major issue.

In the USA, a nation with a highly developed healthcare system, there are over 12 million cases of patient misdiagnosis each year, according to an IOM report published in 2015. Misdiagnosis can be avoided, but only if medical records are precise and portable.

“We identified the collection and storage of correct data at all levels of the health infrastructure as a fundamental issue.

The answer was to provide real-time access to data that reflects the mobility of health records.

Our platform now gives patients sovereign ownership rights over their data and, most crucially, enables them to construct a gateway with all of their health information.

The patient logs in and can view all the data that has been shared with them by every healthcare professional.

The ability of patients to control their medical data and have immediate access to their information can save lives, and it is their right to do so, according to Kamara.

The epidemic has pushed the fast-forward button, making health data analytics and accessibility more urgent. AfyaRekod, a patient-centered innovation in health care, is addressing this global issue.

The blockchain-based Universal Patient Portal, which is subscription-based, provides patients with real-time access to a marketplace of different healthcare providers as well as a consolidated mobile data health passport that gives them consistent access to their health records.

The AfyaRekod Universal Patient Portal provides a secure, decentralized, intelligent telehealth solution, healthcare resources, symptom trackers, reminders and notifications, as well as the mobility of the record across multiple channels and devices, in addition to letting patients securely manage their health records, including health diaries, prescriptions, and summaries of hospital visits.

Although all patients should use these resources, those with chronic illnesses, parents, expectant mothers, and people with inherited conditions can benefit the most from them.

Doctors and other healthcare professionals can use the AfyaRekod platform, which offers an electronic health management system with digital tools to handle all important areas of hospital services and clinics.

The system has many features, including hospital administration, patient management, knowledge management, inventory management, as well as an AI-driven reporting tool that enables businesses to make data-driven decisions, forecasts, and illness early detection.

The portal allows NGOs and other associated organizations to register and administer their beneficiary groups.
