‘Preventive healthcare technology, key to longer, healthier lives’

The Chief Executive Officer of Healthlane, Mr. Alain Nteff, has advocated the use of preventive health technology to for longer and healthier lives.

Nteff, at the unveiling of its Healthlane app and Lagos facility said a comprehensive wellness checks and personalised care plans make it easy to understand, track and improve one’s health.

He said, “With the Healthlane app, users can book for comprehensive check-ups, view medical tests results and records, see health scores and get a comprehensive care plan around nutrition, exercise, sleep and supplements.

“Our mission is to simplify how individuals understand, track and improve their health; enabling longer and healthier lives and reducing the dependence on an overburdened primary health care system.

“Unfortunately, health care has been mistaken to mean sick care. The former is consulting a physician after feeling sick and experiencing symptoms while the latter is about nutrition, exercise, supplements, lifestyle and check-ups. Healthlane’s focus is preventing people from falling sick and enabling people to live longer and healthier lives.”

The expert added that the COVID-19 pandemic had the need for digitisation in the health sector.

“Today, people are now comfortable accessing their medical records on their smart phones. They are more concerned about preventing themselves so they don’t fall prey to certain diseases. We all know that if you are diabetic or hypertensive, you are more affected if you contract COVID-19 compared to someone who is relatively healthy. There is a growing trend of services being deployed through technology and that is where we have positioned ourselves.”

“As a Customer-centric brand, Healthlane’s experience is convenient and seamless. With professional doctors, results are fully explained to clients while a personalised care plan is immediately available on the Healthlane app. This makes sure that by the time clients leave the facility, they have a good understanding of their state of health and what they need to do to improve it,” Nteff said.
