During a webinar devoted to the presentation of the commercial and investment opportunities available to Moroccan companies in Israel, the president of the Morocco-Israel Business Council, Steve O’hana announced, that one of the world leaders in telemedicine will soon establish itself in Morocco.
This is a big announcement. During the debates of a webinar organized by the Israeli employers, the Israeli Employers Business Organization (IEBO), which once again proves that economic and trade relations between Morocco and Israel have a bright future, announced “The current establishment in Morocco of one of the world leaders in telemedicine [which] is one of the living examples”, declared Steve O’hana, welcoming, like the other participants in this videoconference, the enthusiasm shown by investors from both countries.
This leader in telemedicine would be Amwell. Also known as American Well, a telemedicine company headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts, which is listed on the Nasdaq (New York Stock Exchange). Amwell was founded in 2006 by brothers Ido and Roy Schoenberg. These two American-Israeli entrepreneurs grew up in a village near Jerusalem and their company today has a strong international presence, thanks to a partnership forged with Meuhedet, the third largest health insurance company in Israel.
The Amwell Platform, which offers a complete digital healthcare delivery solution, provides its clients (health plans, governments) with the tools to implement new models of care for their patients and affiliate members. “Beyond the bilateral, Moroccan-Israeli economic cooperation can therefore be part of a multilateral approach, in order to enter together new markets where each of our countries is present and competitive,” said Steve O’hana, during of this webinar.
According to the president of the Morocco-Israel Business Council, “our collaboration can extend to several sectors of common interest identified such as agriculture, renewable energies, water, industry, tourism, education, new technologies, innovation and cybersecurity”.
During this IEBO webinar, Steve O’hana also announced that an electronic tool will be launched before the end of the year, and will further facilitate access to information, as well as promote the exchange between the two business communities.
