Digitizing the healthcare journey
Inspired by the revolution of mobile technology and the challenges in the health industry, the CarePay platform was launched in 2015 together with telecom company Safaricom, M-PESA and PharmAccess in 2015 under the brand name M-TIBA in Kenya. The cloud-based platform digitizes and automates the end-to-end health insurance journey and connects individual members to payers and providers.
As all transactions and related information flows are handled real-time in the cloud, administration costs caused by manual processing are lowered drastically. Hospitals are paid faster, better rates are unlocked, and transparency is increased. As individuals can be uniquely identified through their sim-card fraud is significantly reduced. And by having 24/7 insights through the mobile phone, the individual is in full control.

After the proof of concept in Kenya, guided byMoses and Pieter and their teams, the platform expanded to Nigeria in 2018. So far, CarePay connected more than 5 million people to 5,100 healthcare providers and 20 public and private payers through our platform. In 2019 CarePay raised 45 million USD in our Series A and in 2020 we were listed in the top 10 of Fortune’s 500 ‘Change the World’ index.
