Healthcare is going online and miMedix will facilitate it.
Until miMedix, there has been an absence of a global online medical equipment marketplace for healthcare professionals to source, compare and purchase new & second-hand equipment, mobile devices & Apps. Last month for example there were over 165,000 web searches for medical equipment and the mobile health industry is estimated to be worth $27bn.
The miMedix mExchange site is the global online marketplace for the healthcare professional community. It is a cash generator and database gathering vehicle, with additional "Deal-Page" for auctioning large quantities of obsolete stock and a "Request-For-Qualified Quotes" price comparison functions.
There is a separate business channel called "Showcase" which evaluates and awards an 'accreditation standard rating' to inform and educate healthcare professionals of the effectiveness of the latest mobile health devices and Apps that are available around the world. Again, it is unique to miMedix and is a stimulus for assured purchasing of mHealth products displayed and for download.
Initial funding requirements are modest at £150k considering the global scope of the initiative.
