I’m Hiring a Chief Medical Officer for My Health-tech Startup, Medcera

My health-tech startup, Medcera, is getting out of beta and would be launched to the whole public in coming weeks. We are looking for a Chief Medical Officer (CMO) of this company. Medcera is American venture-backed but is totally Nigerian.  I received funding from executives of JP Morgan Chase, KPMG USA, Boeing and other leading U.S. companies.

Our goal is simple: improve African healthcare delivery by simplifying the processes with technology. Medcera is absolutely free (unless you want minor brand customization) to doctors, clinics, labs, imaging centers, pharmacies, etc. We engineered a top-grade electronic healthcare record system with capabilities to connect to other healthcare nexus. Every patient has a portal to manage appointments, pay bills, chat his/her doctor, and more.

We make money through population-level AI driven health analytics which runs at the highest level of industry privacy and security. For example, Medcera can tell you how many people were treated for malaria yesterday in Nigeria for people in our network. That can help government plan. The era of guesswork in health policy-making is over.  We can detect an outbreak in real-time.

Tekedia Mini-MBA (Feb 5 – May 4, 2024) has started; registration continues here.

The CMO will report to me (Chairman, Fasmicro Group) and would lead business development and partnership interfaces with the healthcare sector. Because Medcera supports labs, pharmacies, imaging centers and indeed all elements of the healthcare sector, we are looking for someone who has taken that Hippocratic Oath, Board-certified and yet humble to connect with others (potentially lower) in the healthcare chain.

The job will either be in Aba or Owerri (we are also looking at Lagos though). But since this is a cloud-based solution, we are recruiting partners/networks across the country for physical validations of any practitioner in our network.

If interested, please email [email protected] with your CV. Please help me share with people in your network.

4 THOUGHTS ON I’m Hiring a Chief Medical Officer for My Health-tech Startup, Medcera

  1. Kudos Prof.

    ‘…The era of guesswork in health policy-making is over. We can detect an outbreak in real-time.’

    This really is key, I remember back then in school when I voluntered for a WHO sponsored polio vaccination campaign at Nkwerre LGA of Imo state. WHO had no data to compare progress made or areas covered, fast forward to present day. Ministry of health just keep giving us unverifiable data and analysis. With Heaven on your side Sir this would revolutionize the health care scheme in Africa.
