Healthcare Technology Company Simplifies Fairness in Medical Benefits and Access for All

Established in 2016, MeDKAD began by conducting comprehensive market research to identify gaps and challenges in healthcare benefit management. With the information obtained, they formulated a business plan outlining their innovative solutions and the potential impact they could achieve. Securing initial support and funding from organizations such as the Cradle Fund and MaGIC was crucial to laying the foundation. With a committed team, they developed and tested the MeDKAD platform, refining it based on user feedback. The official launch in January 2018 marked the culmination of careful planning and collaborative effort, paving the way for Medkad to become a leading force in health technology.

“Our inspiration to start this business stems from a deep belief in the transformative power of technology in the healthcare industry. Observing the complexity and shortcomings in medical benefit management, we were compelled to create a solution that not only streamlines processes but also prioritizes fairness and accessibility. Our commitment to innovation arises from a desire to empower companies and individuals by offering cost-effective and user-friendly healthcare solutions.”

One of the major challenges at MeDKAD is adapting to the dynamic changes in the healthcare industry. The constantly evolving landscape, with advancements in technology and changing user needs, requires them to continuously learn and adapt. “To address this challenge, we focus on continuous learning, ensuring our team stays abreast of industry trends and the latest technology. Collaboration also plays a crucial role; we consistently seek expert opinions, strengthen internal cooperation, and maintain open dialogue with healthcare providers. Furthermore, our ability to adapt our products to the ever-changing market demands not only enables us to overcome challenges but also positions us as leaders in healthcare solution innovation.”
