“Adoption has to happen faster to stay ahead of others,” Hamza, co-founder, and CEO of Healthwire said of how the company hopes to compete with others. Because of our digital solutions already in place at hospitals, clinics, and labs, we have better access to hospitals, doctors, and labs in our instance. We’ve laid the groundwork and are well-positioned to become a super-app.”

“The patient-doctor relationship is the point where the entire healthcare ecosystem converges,” stated Nabeel, co-founder, and CTO of Healthwire. We can assure that great treatment is available to patients in the most remote corners of the country by having this interaction on our health-tech platform. We can assure that this access is both affordable and inclusive because of the tech platform’s economies of scale.”

“We are pleased to be doubling down on one of the stars in our portfolio,” said Khurram Zafar, managing director of 47 Ventures and a seed investor in Healthwire. Even during the difficult COVID era, Healthwire has grown and gained momentum, demonstrating the team’s strength and tenacity. It is set to become Pakistan’s health-tech leader.”
