Why Doctoora Stands out
Doctoora provides healthcare at your convenience. According to the startup they understand you are busy so they help provide access to health and wellbeing services where you are.
Also, they provide your detailed health information at your convenience and as at when need.
So you can keep track of your health appointments, feedback and doctors, as well as refer back to old appointment records, prescription and conversation.
Doctoora combines technology with infrastructure to increase access to healthcare by providing short-term healthcare facility rentals thus enabling health professionals to start a private practice with ease.
Generally, they provide access to quality convenient health professionals and facilities anytime anywhere, from home visits to fully functional facilities around the corner.
NESG is Nigeria’s foremost economic think-tank for promoting sustainable growth and development.
Doctoora winning the Nigerian Economic Summit start-up pitch competition signifies that they have a model that is attractive to a league of investor that can help make the company a success.
