Over the last 3-4 years, we have witnessed a big change in the modus operandi of the different sectors of our country. Healthcare is one of them, the major shift has been tech-based healthcare startups like Medibuddy, Prystin care, Dava India, etc. These types of startups have not only changed the entire healthcare paradigm but have also helped many people by making it accessible.

In India, where health care is seen as a service (seva) and doctors are seen as God, unfortunately, there is still a large percentage of the population who do not have access to the best health care services. In general, there are few barriers such as cost, proximity, awareness, etc. where cost means the higher the price, the better the service one can get, proximity means the distance from the doctor’s clinic or a hospital, and awareness means the right knowledge imparted to the patient.

Satish Kanan, co-founder and CEO of Medibuddy, said, “At first we had an online medical call service, then we took it offline, then prescription, diagnosis. We tried to provide a holistic service and also helped them with hospital admissions, as well as home care and mental health.

On the question of whether they are amazon of health services, Satish Kanan added, it is the real thought process that millions of people visit our website and many consult the doctor. Building a cancer hospital is hard, but providing valuable information is easy. We believe in a service platform with the partnership of the medical specialist because it is a niche”.

What have you looked at when investing in it with no prior experience, Sunil Thakur Partner, Quadria Capital said: “We looked at the problem, who is solving it, how they are solving it and with energy or execution they are doing it.”
