Job Vacancy: Sonographer at Ilara Health

Location: Nairobi, Kenya

Do you want to have an immense impact in a VC-backed start-up by providing remote sonography services to thousands of primary healthcare clinics in Africa?

Description of role: Ilara Health is seeking a Sonographer to provide remote analysis of obstetric ultrasounds to underserved primary healthcare clinics.

Ilara Health has begun selling new, high quality ultrasound devices with embedded telemedicine capabilities to underserved primary health clinics that struggle to access sonographers on a regular basis.

Thus, Ilara Health will provide basic training to clinical officers (CO’s) in the clinic on how to hold the probe and have a sonographer provide the analysis in real-time.

The role is split into two components:

  • Full time for 2-4 weeks: Join the Ilara Health team in Nairobi full-time to help develop a training for clinical officers and test the operations of remote analysis.
  • Part time / locum thereafter: 1+ days a week of locuming. We are also very open to you joining full-time.

About Ilara Health

We founded Ilara Health to make common diagnostics affordable and accessible to the 500m people in Africa who today struggle to access even simple blood tests.

The problem is that primary care doctors cannot offer many diagnostics in their clinics so must refer patients to labs. But given the infrastructure challenges in Africa (time and money it takes to get anywhere) patients often do not go.

We solve this problem by partnering with companies using robotics and AI to create lower cost diagnostics, integrating their devices into our tech platform, and selling this bundle to doctors with financing.

Doctors can now offer tests directly in their clinic, improving care and growing their revenue.

Ilara Health is live in four clinics in Kenya and is finalizing a $500,000 investment by two VC firms to scale to 70 clinics by the end of 2019, and more beyond that.
