"Chefaa" for all chronic patients

A project by Chefaa IT

Mobile app & AI technology to serve all chronic patients’ rights for safe & sustainable access to their recurring medicine towards a better quality of life.
Our story started 2 years ago when Chefaa’s CEO was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. She has recovered but she faced problems shared with most chronic patients in MENA & Africa. she couldn’t order & pay for medicine online safely, inconsistent medicine supply, getting wrong medicine sometimes & she forgets to take her medicine. So we built Chefaa; 2 mobile apps connecting patients & pharmacists. In 3 simple steps patient can scan prescription, choose method of payment & submit order that will be sent to nearest pharmacy according to GPS, order is automatically forwarded to next pharmacy if cancelled by pharmacist. For chronic patients we offer scheduled monthly packages; patient picks a day to get a 30-day worth of dosages together with dosage reminders for better treatment adherence & 48-hours heads-up in case of medicine shortage to go back to treating physician & avoid treatment course interruption. And because chronic illness cost a lot, we built the 1st medicine dedicated CSR platform to match donations from corporate with CSR budgets to chronic cases validated by certified NGOs/NPOs. Through a fully integrated system, managed by domain expert team & using AI structure (HIPAA compliant) we can create insights about chronic diseases & market insights to be the 1st medical data warehouse in MENA. Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) are growing threat; MENA has the highest incidence of NCDs globally while in Africa, NCDs are expected to increase by 27% over next 10 years. NCDs also act as key barrier to poverty alleviation. As for data generated and insights,can help decision makers towards data-driven solutions for safe digital transformation of healthcare in MENA and Africa. Chefaa has been operational since April 2018 and has served 30000 patients in 9 Egyptian cities including upper Egypt and pilot CSR campaign matched 200K EGP for chronic poor patients.
