HealthCloud is a data consolidation platform that provides universal healthcare technology interoperability. The platform solves an immense industry problem by enabling different healthcare systems to “speak” to each other using their unique Application Programming Interface (API) driven platform.
HealthCloud was formed in 2017 through visionary founders Simon Spurr and Handre Dreyer who, together with a team of leading advisors from the healthcare and insurance industries, brought similar strategic direction and synergistic technology together. HealthCloud combines digital intellectual property and industry expertise in their interoperability platform. The purpose of this platform being to address one of the biggest problems in the healthcare ecosystem: disintegrated, disparate, inaccurate and incomplete data. HealthCloud was formalised to pursue initiatives within the African and global healthcare technology sector.

Unlike personal banking, or even email, health records are not easily accessible from anywhere in the world. Moreover, many patients will change doctors, hospitals, insurers and other care providers over the course of their lifetime; meaning information can be scattered, dated, or simply lost in translation. Through HealthCloud’s interoperability platform, records, data and medical histories can be interpreted across systems, preventing costly electronic records, wasted information, and encouraging seamless communication between organisations. In turn, this creates a higher quality of treatment for the patient, and ease of access for the providers.
HealthCloud connects and aggregates multiple data types such as Electronic Health Records, Personal Health Records, Calendar / Scheduling, Patient Education Content, Wearable and Clinical Devices, Lab Results, and more. They are continuously expanding the data types that they are integrating using their API and Single Sign-On (SSO) structure.
HealthCloud’s partner-centric model allows developers to connect to their services through APIs to build or enhance features for their environment; or power their own bespoke applications.
