Rocket Health partners with Pezesha to provide credit to healthcare facilities in Uganda

We are excited to announce that Rocket Health and Pezesha have partnered to provide flexible and affordable credit to healthcare facilities in Uganda for routine medical inventory supplies. 

As the leading digital health provider in Uganda, Rocket Health caters to both individual and business customers. The wholesale business unit based in Bugolobi, Kampala facilitates the sourcing and supply of medicines and medical supplies to serve companies, pharmacies, clinics, hospitals, and research institutions countrywide. This is enabled by Rocket Health’s simple and modern eCommerce platform with a dedicated customer support team available by phone, chat, or email and Pezesha’s automated credit scoring system that displays credit limits on the platform.

Pezesha offers a unique solution in the form of flexible and affordable healthcare financing through its embedded finance service. By collaborating with Rocket Health, pharmacies, chemists, and clinics will have access to on-demand and affordable credit within the healthcare supply chain. This value-added service not only enhances customer retention but also attracts new customers, driving improved customer acquisition for Rocket Health. Healthcare facilities can therefore thrive and contribute to the growth of the healthcare technology sector in East Africa.
According to a recent report by  Virginia Economic Development Partnership on healthcare in Africa, healthcare technologies are emerging as a key enabler of care delivery in the East African region, particularly those to improve efficiency and financial sustainability along the healthcare value chain., It remains a challenge for many healthcare providers to find solutions to inventory supply, its reliable availability, affordability, quality assurance, financing, and delivery.  Rocket Health’s new offering with Pezesha provides an end-to-end solution to this fragmented value chain enabling healthcare providers to focus on delivering the highest quality of care to patients countrywide.

Rocket Health is delighted to find a trusted partner in Pezesha to solve age-old bottlenecks in the healthcare value chain. This collaboration will drive reliable quality healthcare by enabling a network of health providers with adequate and timely supplies on credit to make an impact in their communities.

Dr. Davis Musinguzi, CEO, Rocket Health.

We are thrilled about our partnership with Rocket Health as it will drive healthcare supply chain optimization and enable access to affordable inventory financing for healthcare institutions that work with Rocket Health.
