DrFive is UAE’s biggest healthcare review platform with over 640,000 users since its launch. Analysing patient reviews, DrFive helps patients find the right doctors and healthcare providers. It also provides instant quotes for patients looking for dental services, health packages, and deals based on individual needs.

The acquisition will help provide easier access and informed decision making for members and employees of Insurance and corporate enterprises, as well as the general public. Both Aleco El Hayek and Chiho Rim, co-founders of DrFive will join Healthigo management team driving user-base growth and partnership expansion.

 “The acquisition of DrFive offers an exciting opportunity for Healthigo to bring informed decision making to the care-seeker community”, said Joseph Debs, co-founder of Healthigo. “With patients continually using DrFive to review their visits with doctors and facilities, this acquisition supports the Healthigo strategy in becoming the biggest healthcare enabler in the Middle East & Africa. Patients will now have enhanced information about doctors & healthcare providers including reviews from other patients from a single source in order to make the appointment booking experience educated, smooth and effortless. Healthigo continues to work with their healthcare partners further driving engagement between patients and the community.

Chiho Rim, co-founder of DrFive, also commented: “Healthigo’s acquisition of DrFive provides a major growth opportunity for both our businesses through an extended service offering for our users. Patients and care seekers are increasingly looking for an end-to-end solution for their healthcare needs. Together we will be uniquely positioned to support them on that journey.

The expanded services will be available to over 30 million patients and care-seekers across the region in a phased rollout over the coming years.
