The first version of mTOMADY provides patients with a mobile wallet to which they can add money themselves and receive contributions from family members or other donors – savings which are designated and reserved for medical treatment and other healthcare expenses. Because the platform is accessible via a phone-based USSD menu, it does not require an active internet connection nor a smartphone, meaning it can be used in even the most remote communities. A corresponding wallet for community health workers ensures they receive secure, transparent, and timely remuneration for their outreach activities. Healthcare providers use a web-based interface to receive payments, which includes a new digital workflow that makes invoicing more efficient and reliable.
We envision bringing our solution to more countries that desire our help and reaching more than 15 million people by 2025.
