Esaal, the Egyptian digital healthcare platform, has joined hands with Allianz Insurance.
The partnership will see Esaal provide its one-stop-shop automated healthcare solutions to fully cover the medical, health and mental well-being services for Allianz Egypt’s clients and employees in Egypt – subject to receiving regulatory approvals.
The agreement between Esaal and Allianz Egypt will allow the insurance company’s customers and staff in the North African country to easily access comprehensive mental and nutrition consultations on top of their existing insurance plans.
Esaal’s tech-enabled platform delivers a convenient, frictionless and secure wellness service spanning physical health, mental health and nutrition consultations with health professionals via text and video/voice calls saving patients time, money and speedier access to health professionals at the touch of a button.
“We are thrilled to partner with Allianz Egypt as we solve the pain points patients encounter with healthcare accessibility and ultimately improve their wellbeing and health outcomes,” said Fadi Doss, the Founder and CEO of Esaal.
“We are excited about the doors of opportunity that this strategic partnership brings for Esaal, potentially providing a springboard for further expansion into new geographies and thus delivering important health and wellness services across the region.”
The healthtech platform comprises an extensive roster of healthcare professionals who provide consultations covering a wide spectrum of areas, including but not limited to anxiety, physiotherapy, paediatrics, nutrition and many others. Users, who now will include clients, corporates and employees within the Allianz Egypt ecosystem, will have access to a diverse range of experts to attend to their specific health and wellness needs.
The partnership between the two companies is expected to make a profound impact on the healthcare sector on a national and regional level. It is rooted in a shared mission between Esaal and Allianz to prioritise the security, insurance and personalised digital care of customers.
Esaal is a prominent player in the Egyptian health and wellness sector in addition to Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Tunisia with an overall presence in more than nine countries in the MENA region. The platform has built a network of over 650 certified consultants, who have provided health and wellness services to nearly one million users.
The company has continued to innovate and enhance its services over the past year with the launch of two dynamic offerings.
The Egyptian digital health market is expected to reach $1.5 billion by 2025, growing at a CAGR of 19.5% from 2020 to 2025 while growth across the Middle East region is expected to reach $20.7 billion by 2025.
