 ‘OneWellness’ health tracker platform launched in Nigeria

  • Targets 250, 000 users by 2024 

OneHealth, an online pharmacy and healthcare platform has formally launched its OneWellness, a platform that provides healthcare management through access, adherence and accountability, in Nigeria.  

The company also unveiled its app, OneWellness Patient App to help Nigerians manage their medications, treatment and recovery with less dependence on family and hospitals.

Speaking during the dual activities in Lagos, the Chief Executive Officer of the company, Adeola Alli said the company hopes to have supported 250,000 individuals on their wellness journey by 2024, using the OneWellness Patient App.

She explained that the app is a personal health management platform created entirely in-house and guided by dedicated care partner available via chats, call or video to help manage each customer’s medications, send medicine reminders, coordinate refills.

She said: “Through the app, the user can track vitals and report discrepancies, consult doctors and specialists via chats, call or video.

“It will also enable one to manage health records in one place and engage with similar patients and health experts via communities and medically reviewed health content.

“The OneWellness Patient App also enables real-time notifications and an online dashboard so customers and their caregivers can control their medication shipment, reminders, appointments, vital data, refills and insurance, if applicable.”

She added that customers can also text or call their OneWellness dedicated care partner any time to ask questions or clarify instructions.

“In our over three  months pilot phase, we have helped 97 patients, delivered over 200 prescriptions, conducted about 524 check-ins and helped one patient go from high risk of developing heart disease to low risk,” Alli further said.

On what inspired the development of the app, she said: “Seventy percent of all global deaths are as a result of non-communicable diseases like hypertension and diabetes and 75 percent of these deaths come from low and middle -income country like Nigeria.

“As a team, we have realised that almost everyone we have known in the course of work knows somebody with a non-communicable disease but not enough attention is paid to complications that could arise from these conditions. 

“These complications are responsible for the 85 percent of premature deaths of people with non-communicable diseases.

Medication adherence as a primary determinant treatment success is one of the biggest reasons for OneWellness.

“Only 35 percent of people with non-communicable diseases adhere to their medication, leading to treatment failure”

She emphasized that OneWellness approach to health management targets those with non-communicable diseases such as hypertension and diabetes which make up more than 50 percent of the population, where they help identify, resolve and prevent medicine-related problems, optimize medication therapy, reduce adverse events and improve clinical outcomes.
