Implementing a digital platform for essential health packages and universal health coverage.

Bahbak is the co-founder and CEO of Elephant. He holds a Bachelor of Science from the University of St Andrews and he graduated with a degree in medicine from the University of Manchester in 2004. He subsequently trained and worked as a psychiatrist in the National Health Service. From 2009 to 2016, he was co-founder and director of a business providing health, social care, and housing solutions for people with dementia. After a brief return to the NHS as a psychiatrist he launched Elephant Healthcare in the Summer of 2018.

Elephant Healthcare is a global health technology business, headquartered in the UK with operations in Africa and Asia. The first countries adopting Elephant Health’s solutions are Nigeria, Kenya, and Pakistan. In these countries, most of the electronic health records are still paper based and the health facilities and health authorities don’t have timely, complete, and reliable information for important functions such as disease monitoring, resource distribution, quality assessment and performance improvement. Elephant Health has developed several modules that can assist health facilities such as primary health care centres or hospitals with patient scheduling, inventory management, invoicing, and referral management. Elephants’ customers are governments and public health authorities which is a very different approach than what most start-up take.
