SA’s CenHealth partners Uber to offer users ride discounts


South African personal health app CenHealth has partnered taxi hailing app Uber to offer CenHealth users their first Uber ride free up to the value of ZAR200 (US$15).

Disrupt Africa reported in January CenHealth launched what it claimed to be the most advanced public health record system in the country. The app allows users to keep an electronic version of their health records, storing information from weight and height to allergies and allowing South Africans to keep a health diary of all doctor appointments.

The startup said it had partnered Uber to ensure people travel safely and in style. All new users can sign up with the promotional code: CENHEALTH and receive a free first ride of up to ZAR200.

“This is an exciting partnership between two dynamic companies and we are thrilled with this relationship that will benefit our customers. We want to offer people who have an appointment to see their GP for routine visits such as immunisations or annual check-ups, or even taking extra steps to get healthy by going to gym, the opportunity to enjoy delightful travel. This is the ultimate partnership with two forward thinking digital companies,” said Puseletso Mompei, new business director at CenHealth.

“CenHealth fits in with the on-the-go lifestyle of today’s consumer, who enjoys the benefits and convenience of having their health history on demand as well as easy access to doctors. This new offer from Uber will be of solid value for our customers.”
