Browsing: AfyaRekod automated universal patient portal

AfyaRekod was founded in 2019 by John Kamara as an Adanian Lab start-up with seed funding from Mac Venture Capital and Next Chymia.

He established the company after losing a close friend who was misdiagnosed due to lack of medical records and data that could have helped save his life.

Kamara noted that the solution to his friend’s death was bringing real-time access to data.

“We identified the capture and storage of accurate data across every possible level of infrastructure as a core problem. Our tool now allows patients to create a portal with all their health data and, most importantly, gives patients sovereign rights of ownership of their data.

“The patient logs in and sees all the information from the hospital. They don’t have to ask the hospital or beg for information. It’s their right to have access to it,” said Kamara.
