Financial Innovation for Global Health

OneHealth+ is a digital platform that offers a “healthpass” for people to pay for their healthcare or someone else’s from anywhere in the world. Powered by blockchain technology, the platform is designed to provide transparency, security, and efficiency in healthcare payments.

“By moving away from traditional payment methods, we are eliminating the common issues associated with them,” said Boateng, who joined the MBC program after receiving a biology degree and a master’s degree in healthcare administration from Cornell University. “Our platform is committed to making quality healthcare services accessible to everyone, and our digital healthpass is a key component of this mission.”

Boateng’s inspiration for OneHealth+ stems from personal experiences in rural Ghana, where health disparities were stark. Witnessing community members embark on challenging journeys for healthcare, Boateng decided to take action.

“My goal with OneHealth+ is ambitious yet essential: to eliminate financial barriers to timely healthcare access, ensuring that everyone can receive the care they need when they need it,” Boateng said. “The vision behind OneHealth+ is grounded in the belief that every life deserves equitable access to prompt, high-quality healthcare.”

OneHealth+ is not just a startup; it’s a transformative force in the healthcare industry, addressing crucial issues of accessibility and financing, Boateng said. As he continues his entrepreneurial journey, guided by the principles of equity and quality, he wants OneHealth+ to stand as a beacon of hope for a healthier, more accessible future in healthcare.
