Healthlane Launches App, Announces World-Class Preventive Healthcare Technology to Enable Longer and Healthier Lives
Healthlane App allows users to book a doctor’s appointment, view medical tests results and records, see health score, access care plan and nutrition tips.
Lekki-Lagos, November 9th 2021 /Internal PR/- Healthlane, a global preventive healthcare provider has held a formal opening of its Lagos facility in Lekki, Lagos. Healthlane provides comprehensive wellness checks and personalised care plans that make it easy to understand, track and improve one’s health. With the Healthlane app, users can book for comprehensive world-class check-ups, view medical tests results and records, see health scores and get a comprehensive care plan around nutrition, exercise, sleep and supplements.
Speaking at the Press Conference in Lagos, the CEO of Healthlane, Mr. Alain Nteff states “Our mission is to simplify how individuals understand, track and improve their health; enabling longer and healthier lives and reducing the dependence on an overburdened primary healthcare system”. He further clarified that healthcare has been mistaken to mean sick care. The former is consulting a physician after feeling sick and experiencing symptoms while the latter (Healthcare) is about nutrition, exercise, supplements, lifestyle and check-ups. Healthlane’s focus is preventing people from falling sick and enabling people to live longer and healthier lives.
He further states that it is a good time for the brand to launch into the health sector seeing how the Covid-19 pandemic accelerated the digitization of different sectors. “Today, people are now comfortable accessing their medical records on their smartphones. They are more concerned about preventing themselves so they don't fall prey to certain diseases. We all know that if you are diabetic or hypertensive, you are more affected if you contract Covid-19 compared to someone who is relatively healthy. There is a growing trend of services being deployed through technology and that is where we have positioned ourselves,” Nteff asserts.
As a Customer-centric brand, Healthlane’s experience is convenient and seamless. With professional doctors, results are fully explained to clients while a personalised care plan is immediately available on the Healthlane app. This makes sure that by the time clients leave the facility, they have a good understanding of their state of health and what they need to do to improve it.
Healthlane has developed a world-class lab at their office in Lekki and is also able to conveniently set up in corporate workplaces. Healthlane is in partnership with insurance companies and HMOs as the company is set to move the continent and the world into a new horizon for employers and employees. Speaking further on Healthlane’s drive towards easy accessibility of preventive healthcare, Mr Nteff states “Many of our target audience are registered on an HMO and those who do not, pay a friendly out-of-pocket fee to get all the tests done and get results in a maximum wait time of 45minutes. We are the new medical tourist destination and are happy to be doing our bit to improve a situation that many would rather complain about”.
