About the company
Founded in 2018, Yodawy is an online health technology company that connects consumers with pharmacies, health insurance providers and doctors. Using its digital infrastructure, Yodawy is breaking down silos in the health-tech space in Egypt.
According to Jad El Boustani, the company’s managing director, it is uniquely positioned to digitize the healthcare industry. He said that there are “deep infrastructure gaps” in the health-tech space in Egypt. However, few initiatives have been undertaken to address these gaps.
Yodawy aims to increase the efficiency of pharmacy operations by digitally processing claims. It also enables pharmacies to increase their revenues and boost sales through e-commerce. It has already partnered with eight leading health insurance companies in Egypt.
As Yodawy grows its customer base, it plans to expand its offerings to include new markets. Currently, Yodawy is operating in 30 cities in Egypt. In the first year of operations, the company has delivered outstanding results. It has fulfilled 800,000 orders.

Whether you are a patient at a health facility, or a member of the public, you have a right to know what types of medical and other personal information are gathered by a facility, and what they may be used for. The health care industry, and the law, are obligated to protect this information. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) requires health care providers and health plans to develop a Notice of Privacy Practices (NPP) to explain their practices.
The NPP can be a full-page presentation, a booklet, or a text-only version. In addition to being approachable, the designs are often based on plain language. A health care provider’s notice must also inform patients about their rights to privacy, as well as any breaches, or impermissible uses of their information.
