In a world where healthcare is often plagued by inefficiencies and discontinuities, MyItura is a digital healthcare provider that is on a mission to transform the industry in Africa. 

Founded by Shina Arogundade, Opeyemi Arogundade, and Adeoluwa Ogunye, MyItura aims to bridge the gap between healthcare providers and patients by providing a seamless and comprehensive platform for accessing healthcare services. With a strong focus on healthcare data, convenience, accessibility, and trust, MyItura is revolutionizing the way healthcare is delivered in Africa.

The Founding Team's Personal Experience

The founding team of MyItura has a personal connection to the healthcare industry and a deep understanding of the challenges faced by both healthcare providers and patients. Shina Arogundade, one of the co-founders, lost his father to a health condition that could have been better managed if there was a platform that had all his medical records. 

This experience inspired Shina and his co-founders to create MyItura, a platform that would address the inefficiencies in the healthcare system and provide better healthcare solutions for patients in Africa.

About MyItura: Simplifying Healthcare Access

MyItura can be best described as a "Shopify for healthcare providers" in Africa. It is a comprehensive platform that enables healthcare providers to offer digital health solutions to their patients. By leveraging technology, MyItura aims to make healthcare more accessible, efficient, and personalized. The platform allows users to easily book tests, consult with doctors, chat with an AI assistant called Itura, and access their health records, all in one place.

MyItura's platform aims to reduce the death rates prevalent in Nigeria, where there is an average of 13 deaths per 1000 people compared to the global average of 8.5 deaths per 1000 people.

Solving the Problem of Inefficiencies

One of the major problems in the African healthcare system is the lack of resources and talent for healthcare providers to build their own digital solutions. This leads to inefficiencies and discontinuities in patient care. MyItura addresses this problem by providing healthcare providers with a scalable platform that they can leverage to provide digital health solutions to their patients. This not only improves the quality of healthcare services but also enhances patient experience and outcomes.
