Trishula Pathways, a South African based Healthcare technology firm launched their flagship product known as the African Healthcare Portal, on the 22nd of November at the JoziHub event space in Milpark, Johannesburg.
The portal is the brain child of Trishula Pathways CEO; Dr Yushavia Govender, who created the platform to act as a central online corridor to facilitate the flow of information and trade within Healthcare on the continent.
Dr Govender remarked; “The portal is not limited to Healthcare professionals, I encourage every member of the healthcare value chain to join the African Healthcare Portal. It is robust conversations with the various disciplines and practices within Healthcare that is needed to solve the complex problems we face today. I believe in the power of the collective, and our ability to create dynamic solutions tailored for the African healthcare context.”
The portal is an online aggregator, pooling individuals from all parts of the continent onto one platform. Some of features include an online newsfeed aimed at collective problem-solving, online forums to facilitate market research, project management and continent-wide research initiatives. In terms of education and information transfer, the platform allows for the hosting of online seminars, expert classes and cpd-accredited online courses.
Initiatives to promote adoption of the portal have begun and will continue steadily into the new year. “Africa is ripe for digital transformation and better positioned as there aren’t many legacy systems in place to hinder implementation, further the signing of the African Continental Free Trade Area agreement earlier this year marks the start of a new era for the continent as we begin to embrace the power of doing business together, this has created fertile ground for platforms such as the African Healthcare Portal” commented Dr Govender.
