Egypt-based leading health tech startup Sehatech announced that it has secured $850,000 in funding, according to a company official statement.
The health tech startup will use the funding to drive the company’s mission of leveraging proprietary technology to digitize and automate the relationship between insurers and healthcare service providers, including claim and approval management processes, commonly known as third-party administration (TPA) in the healthcare industry.
The company is on solving the pain in the current process of administering a medical insurance policy.
The current process is labor-intensive, time-consuming, and prone to fraud and errors. Sehatech aims to streamline medical approvals, claims processing, and the billing cycle.
Using a sophisticated rule-based engine, Sehatech aims to minimize money lost by insurers due to manual errors and fraud, waste, and abuse. In addition, eliminating manual processes will facilitate a seamless experience for both patients and healthcare service providers.
“We are thrilled to have the support of A15 and Beltone Venture Capital in our mission to transform the healthcare industry in Egypt and the broader region,” said Mohamed Elshabrawy, Founder & CEO of Sehatech. “Digitizing the TPA industry will have a significant social impact on how millions of patients consume healthcare services, making healthcare more accessible and affordable for everyone.”
Sehatech’s digital platform will provide greater transparency, faster processing times, and more accurate claim settlements. This will ultimately lead to better healthcare outcomes for patients, more streamlined administrative operations timely payment settlements for healthcare providers, and reduced loss ratios for insurers.
“We are excited to partner with Sehatech as they bring a much-needed technological advancement to the medical insurance industry,” said Bassem Raafat, Principal at A15. “Their innovative approach will not only improve the efficiency of medical insurance policies administration but also enable a better healthcare experience for patients in Egypt and beyond.”
Sehatech is poised to become a game-changer in the TPA industry, and this funding round will support the company in expanding its team, accelerating product development, and enhancing customer service.
