This would mean entry into new geographical regions and the forging of relationships with other health care providers in a bid to create a more extensive coverage. In fact, if its network can spread over a larger territory and its services can be extended to more patients and health facilities, Care-Fi can go as far as making a difference within the healthcare system.

The innovation and expansion that Care-Fi is poised for hold a bright future for the company. The company is now best placed to take current and emerging challenges in the health sector through the integration of pertinent fintech solutions. With healthcare costs expected to continue rising, demand for financiers in this sector likely to follow suit will surge.

Another step in Care-Fi’s grander plan of changing the face of healthcare financing in the world, the new $2.6 million in debt funding would have possibly put the company on course to increase its service features and expand its reach to more people. This, in essence, identifies the important role that fintech can play in making sure that financial access to healthcare is achieved, subsequently ensuring that better patient outcomes are attained and service to healthcare providers is sustained.
