The healthtech startup behind the solution was launched after a discussion, between its co-founders, on the lack of affordable healthcare in their country (South Africa). After that discussion, they decided to mobilize qualified healthcare professionals to find a solution to that challenge.   

NOOSi is a healthtech solution developed by a South African start-up. It connects -virtually or in person- nurses to people who need home health care. The Cape Town-based healthtech was founded in 2021 by Sumarie Roodt and Catherine Williams to create a community where healthcare is accessible to all.

“NOOSi was started because we wanted to revitalize the South African healthcare system. We believe that this can be done by using a “tech4good” approach in a way that gives hardworking nurses new and better job opportunities and gives patients a way to get affordable and accessible healthcare,”  explained Sumarie Roodt.

To access its services, users need to set up their NOOSI accounts through the solution’s web platform. The startup has a skilled workforce to perform every task, from chronic disease management care to mental and psychiatric care. The platform embeds a search bar where one has to fill in information such as the address of the potential patient, the services he/she needs, and the category of the service.

NOOSi always suggests the best nurse for every task since each of them is specialized in a particular area. When users select the nurse they want, they can contact them directly on Whatsapp to book their services. The rates applied depend on the services requested.  Currently, the healthtech solution is only available in the Western Cape. The startup is typing to expand to other provinces before a possible international expansion.
