Chenosis partners with EDGE Evolve on e-health APIs

In the context of the new normal created by the COVID-19 pandemic, Chenosis is pleased to announce its strategic partnership with EDGE Evolve offering eMed hospital management suite of Application Programming Interface (APIs). The first APIs to be made available will be much needed "Patient Management" APIs.

The longer the virus persists, the higher the likelihood becomes of a momentous shift in consumer and provider adoption of e-health solutions, possibly becoming normative in a post-COVID era. This, in turn, could lead to the emergence of a new wave of bold e-health solutions and a rapid evolution of e-health capabilities and user uptake.1

EDGE Evolve is such a company which provides eMed Hospital Management Systems that aids in the managerial and administrative operations of small to large- scale healthcare institutions. This provides error-free data that supports effective decision making, enhancing operational efficiencies while reducing operating costs.

"The COVID-19 pandemic as a global health and societal emergency requires bold and innovative solutions by governments, individuals and health care providers alike. It is through partnerships with companies like EDGE Evolve that the healthcare systems and the efficiency of the entire patient care life-cycle can be improved," says Charles Molapisi, MTN Group Chief Technology and Information Officer – leading the Chenosis venture.

"Chenosis, Africa's first cross-industry API marketplace, is open for multiple sectors to publish a diverse range of API's, which in turn can be purchased, all on a single platform. Now it has become easier than ever before to publish API's so that others can in turn, discover and consume them," he added.

Patient-centric APIs are essential to improving the mortality of the human race. Existing EHR/EMR and EPR2 systems can now be transformed and aggregated into more patient-centric systems by using APIs which will help modern application developers build innovative healthcare products and applications. APIs are seen as the digital connectors in today's platform-centric business world.3

"We are excited to start this new journey with Chenosis and to jointly grow our footprint into the pan-African market. Our goal is to have our products and API's reach the maximum number of consumers on the continent. In doing so, we will assist in the digital transformation of their businesses. Our brand's mission statement is "connecting people to their aspiration" and with Chenosis, we are truly living up to this expectation," says Manny Morreira, EDGE Evolve CEO.

EDGE Evolve e-Med platform provides a range of services from Patient Registration to Stock Management to Bed Management to Critical Care System with the hopes of improving customer and patient care as well as maintaining strict control over procurement efficiencies, administration, cost and profitability.

The Patient Management module is the heart and soul of the EDGE Evolve's eMed system. All medical details relating to the patient's care can be captured and stored here, in a secure encrypted electronic format. A unique patient number is automatically generated for each patient. Multi criteria search for patients on the database is catered for.

Chenosis is open to all mobile network operators, fintech start-ups, payment service providers, mobile wallet operators, financial service providers, and more. Now, searching for a variety of API's has become simpler, as Chenosis offers a diverse range of API products from across the continent.
