KENYA – Telehealth company Penda Health has partnered with Power Financial Wellness to expand access to affordable diagnosis and treatment for clients remotely with in-depth, physical examinations during virtual visits.

Penda Health is a private healthcare solutions provider in Kenya that offers blended healthcare in which patients can access a chain of high-quality medical centres around Nairobi and its environs or 24/7 remote consultation with an in-house team depending on what is most convenient for the patient.

Its telemedicine platform known as Pigia Penda allows users to access unlimited healthcare consultation, mental health consultation and wellness services from wherever they are or whenever they want, only visiting a hospital when physical visits are necessary.

Penda has entered into a mutually beneficial agreement with Power Financial Wellness where Power’s companies and customers will have access to unlimited 24/7 telemedical care provided by Penda Health’s clinicians at an extremely affordable cost.

The partnership will also boost employee productivity for partner companies as employees will not have to worry about medical consultations including delivery of drugs which can be done to their office location or home as selected by employees.

Power has taken up telemedicine services meaning a reduction in employee absenteeism, improved sick leave support as well as increased overall workforce productivity and physical and mental wellbeing. Also, the consultation fee at Penda Health’s hospital will be waived if a physical visit is necessary.

In addition, Penda Health will join the Power platform to enable a range of appropriate financial services for their workforce and Power users will now have access to Penda Health’s telemedical services such as physical delivery of prescription medications at extremely affordable costs.

The Power platform dubbed “Protect” module is a marketplace for working individuals to access health services at affordable prices through its technology including medical insurance, funeral cover and rescue services.

The integration of Penda Health into Power’s platform will ensure that companies can allow employees and their loved ones to have access to holistic healthcare services while at work or from home. Individuals can also pay for their services in smaller instalments through Power’s financing option.

Power will also avail various digital services to Penda Health’s employees from the platform aimed at improving their overall financial health including salary advances, direct savings options to a bank account of their choice, qualify for long-term loans and insurance products.

Moreover, Penda Health employees who work around the clock to provide high quality telemedicinal care will not need to worry about visiting their banks or filling in forms to get their earned wages or access other financial services, all available on the Power platform to partner employers.
