Macquarie Medical Care Bringing Health in Reach through telemedicine and digital health.

Impact

Namibia is a developing country in southern Africa which has a ubiquitous lack of access to quality and affordable healthcare. Exacerbated by a low doctor to patient ratio in public facilities, low medical aid/insurance penetration and hyperinflationary private healthcare in urban areas, the country also has some of the most geographically remote rural communities with little to no access to healthcare infrastructure. Dr MacQ brings Health in Reach by optimizing the 3 pillars of healthcare, being access, affordability and quality, by using simplified and flexible telemedicine solutions, decentralized onsite medication provision, and innovative funding mechanisms, all enabled by a digital health optimizer and engagement solution with an artificial intelligence backbone.

The majority of our B2C clients are geographically or financially marginalised populations, while our B2B clients are largely supported by optimising the health of their largely blue-collar workforce.
