There are hundreds of medical practitioners and healthcare centres across Nigeria. However, getting medical help is a bit difficult because hospitals have so many patients they attend to.
So, if you have an emergency, you may be unable to get a doctor that will attend to you immediately.
To deal with this, Mediserve has launched to help you book for Doctors and other health service providers around your neighborhood. So, when you have an emergency, you do not need to wait until you get to the hospital before you get the attention of the Doctor. He/she will be waiting for you.
Mediserve, which was founded by Olufemi Okunlola in February 2017, is a smart solution aimed at creating the very missing Health Information System in Nigeria. It is a comprehensive directory of Medics, Specialist, Surgeons, Private Health Centers, Primary Healthcare Centers around the country. In summary, it allows you to search through the directory of doctors and book an appointment.
Speaking on what motivated him to establish, Okunola said: “MediServe stemmed from my personal experiences with a couple of healthcare providers in Nigeria. These experiences drove me into the task of improving our healthcare delivery system. I don’t want to be among the people who blame the government for everything. My philosophy is “ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.”
Till date, Mediserve has over 320 medical doctors, 127 Medical centre and 364 registered patients.
