The healthtech solution was developed by a group of entrepreneurs who aim to help people access competitive radiology services. 

Rology is an AI platform developed by an eponymous Egyptian start-up. It enables patients to easily book appointments with radiologists. The Cairo-based startup behind the platform was founded in 2017 by Amr Abodraiaa, Moaaz Hossam, Mahmoud Eldefrawy, and Bassam Khallaf to address the shortage of radiologists in Africa. 

Via its web platform, users can book an appointment with radiology specialists. They can go live within a few minutes after completing the usual formalities. The startup also offers a free trial. In both cases, users need to fill out a form by providing information such as name, hospital, or type of analysis. After the appointment, the patient receives a report from the specialist within twelve hours, and, in case of an emergency, the report is available within 90 minutes. 

Rology works with about 100 hospitals and has completed several rounds of financing ($1 million in total) to expand into Africa and the Middle East. It is now present in eight countries.

In 2020, when the startup raised $860,000, co-founder Amr Abodraiaa said: "for the last three years we saw firsthand how Rology’s services help hospitals offer fast and accurate care to their patients and how it can save patients’ lives. We look forward to expanding Rology’s platform to the African and Middle Eastern market where there is a huge need for Rology’s services and ultimately help hospitals offer better care to their patients."
