Network member BIMA scooped the award ‘Best Mobile Innovation for Health & Biotech’ at the GSMA Global Mobile Awards (GLOMO Awards). The awards recognise and celebrate the very best innovations that help evolve and develop the mobile industry.
BIMA’s mHealth tele-doctor services are affordably bundled with its insurance products, thereby offering greater value to customers and giving them all-round protection against both financial and health risks.
The service is complemented by a suite of online-to-offline services delivered in partnership with local networks of hospitals, laboratories and pharmacies in each of BIMA’s markets.
Mobile Health services were launched by BIMA in 2016 in Ghana to address the scarcity of traditional healthcare resources in most emerging countries. The mobile service offers subscribers and their families unlimited access to medical consultations and health programmes over their phones and paid for via their phone credit. Since its inception mHealth from BIMA has been launched in Bangladesh, Ghana, Pakistan, Paraguay and Cambodia and has reached over 2.2 million customers.
Jose Martin, Global Health Strategy Manager of BIMA, said:
“For BIMA to be recognized as a leader in the mobile healthcare industry is incredibly motivating for us. At BIMA we’re focused on providing the best possible mobile-based health service to people who need it most."
