eHOSP - The only health insurance app you will ever need! Easy retrieval & sharing of your medical records.
eHOSP is developing a B2B enterprise online SaaS platform for health insured patients, healthcare providers & insurance companies.
Our mission is to empower all people with private health insurance, to control, retrieve and share their medical data with insurance companies from a unified, easy, and secure online platform.
While we strive to create a healthcare and private insurance ecosystem, financing our venture and finalizing our MVP would unlock the potentials of this innovative idea and would offer great profit margins and sustainability.
At this point, I would like to share with you some information about the platform, the team and the progress of the eHOSP platform. As a team, we already have the necessary experience and know-how to create the eHOSP MVP in a short period of time (appx. 5 months).
We have managed to receive two official LOIs (Letter of Intents) from the CEO of the Bioiatriki Healthcare group, Mr. George Spanos and the president of the social association of EN.DI.SY.
In addition, we have been in contact with several insurance companies. The feedback of all these meetings was that the platform is very useful and solves many problems at their processes. Many of them were willing to be part of the ecosystem and test our platform when the MVP is ready and functional.
Some of the insurance companies that are being interested are Generali, Eurolife, and Interasco.

Problem or Opportunity
Insurance companies face major inefficiencies due to bureaucracy and the exchange of information with their clients and healthcare providers. The industries of healthcare and insurance need to be disrupted for insurance companies to be able to provide fast and quality services. Also, the lack of trust between stakeholders due to uncertified data leads to ineffective data management which points to slow speed of claims and high administrative costs. This results in slow and low-quality services. Thus, the insured patients can't withstand the dysfunctional processes.
Finally, insurance fraud is on the rise, forming no other option for health insurance companies than to inflate the premiums for their clients, by raising the prices to cover unexpected events.
Healthcare providers suffer due to lack of transparency as there is no integrated healthcare system to interact with insurance companies and patients to safely manage personal and private information while keeping their patients in the loop and giving them control in the process. Therefore, bureaucracy, incomplete patient’s medical history due to human error, endless paperwork, etc. can cause serious medical errors and offers very low-quality patient care.
Tons of paper, ink, toners, plastic, fuels, electricity, etc. are consumed and millions of tons of emissions are being generated every day for the average industry to operate. The negative impact is tremendous and the results for the environment devastating. This dramatically degrades the global economy and adds insurmountable barriers. Therefore, another way must be found.

Our team is ready to reshape the landscape!
We have assembled a core team of experts on our board and put effort to build a great network with insurance companies.
We are looking for seed finance of 200.000€ to rent a space, establish the company, and enroll two senior developers to start coding. This money will cover all our expenses for the first year and will give us the opportunity of introducing a beta product in the first three months.
After 6 to 7 months, we expect to have a final product (MVP).
Having a quality platform, while collaborating with some of the biggest insurance companies and their partnered medical providers will allow for easy collaboration with the rest of the health insurance market (initially in Greece), for finalizing our MVP.
Being able to handle the new channels of communication without a single point of failure locally, will lead us to start expanding in new markets by the end of the second year.
