African full-service healthtech, Helium Health, has acquired Meddy Inc., a doctor booking platform that operates in Qatar and the UAE.

Founded in 2015 by Adegoke Olobusi, Tito Ovia, and Dimeji Sofowora, the healthtech startup offers a full suite of products covering the complete healthcare value chain, from Electronic Medical Records (EMR) and Hospital Management Information (HMI) Systems to credit and telemedicine products.

On the other hand, Meddy Inc., founded in 2015, allows patients to search for doctors that meet their criteria and need. Users can search for general care, such as internal medicine or OB/GYNs, and specialty care, like a urologist or endocrinologist.

Already present in Nigeria, Ghana, Liberia, Senegal, Kenya, and Uganda, the acquisition will enable Helium to expand beyond the African borders and deploy its electronic medical record (EMR) technology and healthcare financial solutions across the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) market.

Additionally, Haris Aghadi, Meddy’s chief executive officer (CEO), and COO Abed Alkarim Khattab will join the Helium Health leadership team.

Adegoke Olubusi, Helium CEO, said: “In Qatar, UAE and KSA, a great market opportunity exists to work with care providers to improve patient interaction, make healthcare data more interoperable, and to improve revenue cycle management. I am excited to welcome Haris and his team to the Helium Health family and look forward to many years of fruitful collaboration.”
