NIGERIA — In an unprecedented move, BetaLife Health has launched a cloud-based platform that connects hospitals and blood centers across Africa, revolutionizing the efficient flow of life-saving blood products to patients in dire need.
Departing from traditional manual processes, hospitals and blood banks now rely on BetaLife Health’s sophisticated algorithms to predict the timing and locations of blood donations most in demand.
This breakthrough has resulted in more efficient distribution of blood products, minimizing wastage and ensuring that life-saving treatments reach those who need them most.
At the helm of this groundbreaking endeavor is the remarkable Founder & CEO of BetaLife, Mubarak Ayanniyi, who, at just 21 years old, proudly stands as the Changemaker driving the blood supply transformation in Africa.
BetaLife Health’s remarkable innovation has had a profound impact on the lives of numerous individuals.
This includes those facing various health challenges such as illnesses, mothers experiencing labor complications, fathers undergoing heart surgeries, children undergoing chemotherapy treatments, grandparents suffering from severe anemia, premature babies, and victims of accidents.
In addition to its groundbreaking algorithms, BetaLife Health utilizes AI-powered chatbots to recruit blood donors and raise awareness about the importance of donating blood.
These chatbots engage potential donors through social media platforms and messaging apps, providing information, answering queries, and dispelling myths surrounding the donation process.
The shortage of blood donations has long plagued Africa, with many countries struggling to meet the demand for blood transfusions.
However, with the advent of AI advancements, the continent stands on the precipice of a breakthrough that has the potential to save countless lives.
One of the key advantages of AI in the blood donation process is its ability to analyze vast amounts of data and generate predictions based on that data.
BetaLife Health’s pioneering technology enables blood banks to forecast periods of low donation rates and proactively encourage donors to contribute blood to prevent shortages.
In Africa, the need for blood is particularly critical, as blood transfusions are required every few seconds.
According to a report by the World Health Organization, meeting the transfusion needs in the African region demands over 10 million pints of blood.
To showcase its life-saving initiatives to other African countries, BetaLife Health has secured sponsorship from the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) to represent Nigeria at the Gitex Africa 2023 tech event in Morocco.
This event brings together tech giants, governments, SMEs, startups, investors, coders, and academia.
BetaLife Health has also received support from Microsoft’s Health Tech Hub Africa accelerator, won the Health 4 Equity grant, emerged victorious in the AfriHacks challenge, and been recognized as the top-performing startup of the National Information Technology Development Agency’s (NITDA) i-hatch startup incubation program.
The cloud-based platform provided by BetaLife Health establishes unprecedented connectivity among hospitals and blood centers nationwide, ensuring the seamless flow of life-saving blood products to patients in need.
By granting direct access to a diverse network of premier blood centers, BetaLife Health enhances inventory turnover, eliminates wastage, reduces shortages, and accelerates growth.
