Healthlane, a global preventive healthcare provider, has officially opened its Lagos facility in Lekki, Lagos. Healthlane offers comprehensive wellness checkups and personalized care plans that make it easy to understand, monitor and improve health. With the Healthlane app, users can book world-class in-depth exams, view medical test results and records, view health scores, and get a comprehensive care plan for nutrition, exercise, sleep and supplements.
Speaking at the press conference in Lagos, Healthlane CEO Mr. Alain Nteff said: “Our mission is to simplify the way people understand, track and improve their health; enable longer and healthier lives and reduce reliance on an overburdened primary health care system. “ He further clarified that health care had been confused with health care. The first sees a doctor after feeling sick and experiencing symptoms, while the second (healthcare) is about nutrition, exercise, supplements, lifestyle, and check-ups. The goal of Healthlane is to prevent people from getting sick and to enable them to live longer and healthier lives.
He further stated that he iNow is the right time for the brand to jump into the healthcare sector seeing how the Covid-19 pandemic has accelerated the digitalization of different sectors. “Today, people are now comfortable accessing their medical records on their smartphones. They are more concerned with preventing themselves so as not to fall prey to certain diseases. We all know that if you have diabetes or hypertension, you are more affected if you contract Covid-19 than a relatively healthy person. There is a growing trend in the provision of services using technology, and this is where we have positioned ourselves., “ Nteff asserted.
As a customer-centric brand, Healthlane’s experience is convenient and seamless. Results are fully explained to clients with a professional doctors while a personalized care plan is available immediately on the Healthlane app. This ensures that by the time clients leave the facility, they understand their condition and what they need to do to improve it.

Healthlane is partnering with insurance companies and HMOs as the company stands ready to move the continent and the world to a new horizon for employers and employees. Speaking further of Healthlane’s desire to facilitate access to preventive health care,
Mr. Nteff said that âMany of our target audience are registered on an HMO and those who do not pay an out-of-court fee to do all the tests and get results within a maximum wait time of 45 minutes. We are the new medical tourism destination and are happy to do our part to improve a situation many prefer to complain about.“.
