WeMa Life Launches Brand New HealthTech Platform
Earlier in 2018 we heard from Rohit Patni, CEO of WeMa Life about what the year had in store for HealthTech. Last week the company launched their WeMe Life app. The app seeks to remove the pain of booking and paying for health, care and wellbeing services.
The HealthTech platform connects consumers needing services across a range of sectors with businesses offering them. Consumers can use the app to seek out health, care and wellbeing services for themselves or those close to them. Services range from domestic help, nursing, social and domiciliary care to massages, yoga and Pilates instructors physiotherapists and more. Services can be booked as one-offs or recurring bookings. The app supports buying from multiple providers in a single transaction.
Rajal Patni, CFO: “WeMa Life was borne out of our family’s own difficult experiences of caring for an elderly relative – we understand the emotional and physical strain of looking after a loved one. It’s a time-consuming role that requires a lot of diligence as well as a huge number of sacrifices. We’re confident that WeMa Life will make this experience far simpler and less stressful, while also helping others better managing their own health.”
For businesses the tools offered will help them manage their services more efficiently. Through the WeMa Life app health care providers can arrange appointments, roster staff, talk to customers and accept payments.
WeMa Life is a self-funded venture from husband and wife team Rohit and Rajal Patni along with their son Vivek. The inspiration comes from the difficulties they experienced in finding reputable healthcare providers for an elderly relative.
Vivek Patni, COO: “After a year of development and months of beta testing, we are delighted to announce the launch of WeMa Life’s multi-service HealthTech platform and app. We are confident that both consumers and businesses will benefit greatly from our easy-to-use product, which combines technological innovation with solid healthcare practices to empower individuals to maintain a healthy lifestyle or better perform informal carer duties.”
Rohit’s experience comes from 30 years working in IT. He sold his card payment company YESpay to WorldPay for over £20 million. He is the company’s CEO. Rajal takes on the role of CFO and brings over 25 years working within a range of companies from various sectors. Vivek is the startup’s COO and brings his background in professional services and a biomedical sciences degree.
Rohit Patni, CEO: “Anyone who has ever been tasked with sourcing domiciliary care for themselves or someone close to them will know how difficult, stressful and cumbersome the process can be. Often blighted by poor communication and requiring multiple platforms, the healthcare industry has been crying out for a better solution to connect care within communities – the launch of WeMa Life will deliver this.”
The app has a broad appeal allowing young people to book regular fitness sessions or allow older people to book care for elderly parents.
