MediVerse brings a doctor to your fingertips 24/7
Access to healthcare goes beyond building hospitals and hiring doctors. MediVerse aims to bring convenient and affordable healthcare at all hours. Their team is a part of the 2023 Health Incubator Helsinki program.
Health technology is increasingly empowering patients to take charge of their own health. For example, wearable devices not only collect information on activity and sleep, but can also be used to continuously measure blood sugar levels or heart health among other health factors. MediVerse is creating a platform where patients can integrate health data from wearable devices with the patient’s own medical history. Artificial intelligence will then analyze the information and provide the patient with real-time suggestions to improve their health. Additionally, through the platform patients who wish to consult with a healthcare professional directly can do so 24/7, instantly providing necessary medical information to the doctor through a user-friendly interface.
Getting doctors onboard with telemedicine
The healthcare platform from MediVerse has been designed predominantly with healthcare professionals in mind, allowing them to provide optimal care with ease. As an example, the platform includes an automated alert system that warns physicians against prescribing medications containing allergen-containing ingredients. Significantly, the platform is being developed in a way that ensures healthcare providers in different time zones can easily access the system, allowing meaningful patient care even in the odd hours. MediVerse is focusing on markets where smartphone penetration is high and the healthcare system is not strong enough. This enables patients to reach healthcare providers easily and reduces the load on the national health system.

An emergency solution with room for innovation
Co-founders, Mahmood Ulhaq and Ahmed Anwar Hasan, are already testing their telehealth platform in Bangladesh, where a simple trip to the doctor 20km away can take 3-5 hours due to heavy traffic. This can discourage patients from visiting a doctor with severe negative consequences on their health. Ulhaq adds that the patient’s benefits are also financial depending on where their doctor is located, “Seeing a doctor in Bangladesh costs $10-$12 , while a doctor in Tanzania charges $25 to $35”. Decreased stress on the local healthcare system and healthier citizens create space for economic growth.
The sky’s the limit in health tech
MediVerse is setting up their head office in Finland, and was advised by Business Finland to apply for the Health Incubator Helsinki program for guidance and support on monitoring and adhering to the strict regulations in Europe. “When we got in, we knew it was the right decision,” Ulhaq laughs. The team was provided with a place to start working, but also much more beyond their original expectations. Even with the team’s extensive experience in corporate culture, for example, Health Incubator Helsinki still provided opportunities to pick the minds of investors and other stakeholders. MediVerse’s small and passionate team is now working towards a clear vision, and hopes to incorporate other health tech solutions into their platform inspired by their experience within the program. “There are multiple opportunities through Health Incubator Helsinki. They communicate and network with others, and bring other companies and organizations together in many events,” Ulhaq says. “In fact, until I became part of Health Incubator Helsinki I never knew that there are other companies around me which we can bring in.” Currently, MediVerse is looking for investors and collaborators to revolutionize healthcare while making a social impact.
