Doxx, Egypt-based healthcare startup, raised $1.5 million in seed round led by VC Openner. Doxx also launched the first fully integrated digital platform in the MENA region after the seed round connecting medical professionals and institutional healthcare providers including pharmacies, labs, scans, and insurance companies.
With the aim to support the patient’s medical journey, increase accuracy, as well as improve the quality of service while reducing healthcare costs for the patient.
“Guided by our commitment to close the gap between the patients and the healthcare community and increase the quality-of-care delivery, we developed a comprehensive and inclusive platform, putting the patients’ needs at the center of our focus while providing benefits to all the healthcare stakeholders and participants. We designed Doxx to be the trusted patient and doctor-friendly app in single-source care. We help patients take control of their journey and medical needs and address their healthcare needs well beyond booking features and prescription fulfillment in a single easy-to-use platform that will be their lifelong companion,” Sherif Broudy, Founder and CEO of Doxx, said.
Doxx is a patient-centric application that focuses on empowering patients to take control of their medical records, lead healthier lifestyles, and find the right medical care required through a network of fully integrated service providers.
Doxx also allows medication delivery and other services through the application and is set to expand in the next few months to cover several governorates outside the greater Cairo region.
“Elevate’s investment in Doxx is part of our fundamental commitment to elevating access to quality healthcare in Egypt and Sub-Saharan Africa. This is the first of a series of investments in healthcare startups as part of Elevate’s healthcare-focused venture capital platform, with our participation in Doxx being a warehousing effort. At Elevate, we believe that the technological innovation, creativity, and agility that healthcare startups possess, combined with the wide supply/demand gap in quality healthcare services, provides all the right ingredients for Egypt to eventually become a regional hub for healthcare services to serve the rest of Africa, and we want to be the engine that helps drive this growth. We are excited to see what Doxx can do as part of this vision,” Tarek Moharram, Group CEO of Elevate PE and Elevate Healthcare, stated.
