Solution Pitch 

The Problem

Rology is addressing the problem of limited access to quality health care services, specifically diagnostic imaging, in the fragile contexts of Kenya and Egypt, where health systems are strained due to systemic inequities and weak governance. Globally, over 1.6 billion people are affected by such issues, leading to poor health outcomes.

The Solution

The platform works by connecting health facilities in Kenya and Egypt with a global network of radiologists. Medical images, such as X-rays, CT scans, and MRIs, are securely uploaded to the cloud, where they are processed by AI algorithms to identify potential anomalies and therefore, assist in diagnosis. Remote radiologists can then access the images, review the AI-generated insights, and provide their expert interpretation and recommendations.
