    Rivia, an e-health startup based in Ghana, has announced its acquisition of Waffle, a local Software as a Service (SaaS) company, in a strategic move aimed at expanding its digital healthcare network and enhancing service offerings.

    Launched in January with a focus on collaborating with clinics to improve service quality in the healthcare sector, Rivia has quickly emerged as a key player in the industry. The startup provides comprehensive support to partner clinics, ranging from customer acquisition and financing to technology implementation, with plans for regional expansion across West and East Africa.

    The acquisition of Waffle, renowned for its expertise in developing software solutions for small and medium-sized businesses, signifies Rivia’s commitment to fortifying its technological infrastructure. Under the umbrella of RiviaOS, the rebranded platform, Waffle will continue to innovate and refine its hospital and inventory management software.

    Victor Nara, founder of Waffle, has joined Rivia as its chief technology officer, bringing with him a wealth of experience and technical acumen. The integration of Waffle’s solutions into RiviaOS will enable healthcare providers to access a comprehensive suite of services, including appointment scheduling, video consultations, e-pharmacy, and AI-powered health diagnosis.

    Isidore Kpotufe, CEO of Rivia, hailed the acquisition as a strategic milestone in the company’s growth trajectory. “The addition of Waffle’s technology will significantly enhance our capabilities and streamline our operations, allowing us to better serve our partner clinics and meet the evolving needs of patients,” Kpotufe remarked.

    Nara expressed enthusiasm about the partnership, citing Rivia’s shared vision and values as key factors in his decision to join forces with the company. “Joining Rivia presents a tremendous opportunity to contribute to the advancement of digital healthcare in Africa. I am confident that together, we can drive meaningful impact and improve access to quality healthcare services,” Nara stated.

    The acquisition of Waffle underscores Rivia’s commitment to leveraging technology to revolutionize healthcare delivery in Africa. With a focus on innovation and collaboration, Rivia is poised to accelerate the digitization of healthcare systems and address the pressing challenges facing the industry across the continent.
