In this interview meet Armid Azadeh, the founder of MACQUARIE MEDICAL CARE and Tosaline Auene, Response Coordinator at MACQUARIE MEDICAL CARE, who speak about how they provide health for remote communities and lodges in Namibia through telemedicine and digital health innovation.
It all started when Dr. Armid, after his return to Namibia around 2010 and 11 started to visit remote parts of Namibia and noticed that a lot of employees at lodges or remote sites had no access to healthcare.
So initially they just started by providing a doctor on call. However, that service quickly developed into a full service model that helps to decentralize healthcare.
In the interview Armid and Tosaline share
- How they developed their telemedicine offer from a doctor on call to a full service model
- How they price access to their telemedicine offerings
- Which procedures and strategies enable them to treat a vast majority of calls they get remotely
- And what plans they have for growing their telemedicine and digital health innovation business
They also talk about how entrepreneurs new to the sector can set up telemedicine businesses and what their advice to young Namibians is.
There are a lot of insights in this interview and we hope that you enjoy the conversation with Armid and Tosaline as much as we did.
