Alma Health launches in Dubai

Digital healthcare provider Alma Health has launched its services in Dubai after establishing operations in Abu Dhabi and Cairo. 

Funded by leading global and regional centure capital firms, Alma Health aims to simplify the lengthy process of managing chronic conditions, such as diabetes, hypertension and cholesterol.

Alma Health is fully licensed as a healthcare provider by the departments of health in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, and by the Ministry of Health in Egypt. The licensed provider owns and operates its own virtual clinics, where it carefully vets the physicians and hires the best to offer chronic condition management and care via their in-house developed technology. Alma Health also owns and operates a network of cloud pharmacies specifically designed for the fulfillment and delivery of chronic care medication.

Alma Health was established amidst the global pandemic by co-founders Khaldoon Bushnaq, the former head of strategy and business performance at Careem, and Tariq Seksek, who held former product leadership roles at Dubizzle and OLX.

The company offers individuals virtual medical consultations directly via the Alma Health application with one of the company’s licensed, in-house general practitioner doctors and convenient lab tests, which can be done in the comfort of one’s home. From there, users are able to obtain prescriptions on a renewal basis, fully covered by the user’s health insurance, without stepping foot in a clinic or hospital, and are provided same-day delivery of their prescription medication at no added cost. Individuals can also benefit from a second opinion on their chronic condition as well as a customised management plan. 

Alma Health also offers direct insurance billing with preferred insurance partners, including Daman Enhanced and Thiqa, Oman Insurance, NAS, Neuron, Enaya, Al Madallah and ADNIC, as well as ongoing support, medication reminders and automatic prescription renewals. Additionally, the company keeps track of users history and previous prescriptions, all of which is 100 per cent secure with the use of a 256 – bit data encryption alongside being HIPAA compliant. 

Khaldoon comments, “Alma Health aims to create a world in which your chronic condition does not complicate your life. A world in which hours are not wasted in waiting rooms, and you never have to face the surprise of an unexpected medical bill. A world in which managing your health is as easy as a click of a few buttons.” 

With its ongoing growth journey in Abu Dhabi and current expansion into the UAE and Egypt, the company has plans to scale operations to adjacent markets with further funding in the pipeline.
