How DoctorC is helping cure monetary pandemic

 4 years ago    

With the advent of the digital era has there been a deluge of start ups revolving around technology. However there are only a few that are novelty. And fewer that celebrate the renaissance of healthcare. DoctorC is one such health tech start up with a mission to “make healthcare affordable, transparent and simple”.

DrC1With illnesses set to linger, healthcare will foresee more disparities in costs and quality and the already suffering patient will suffer more only this time from a hole in his pocket. Under the weight of expertise and trust implied by the recommendations of Doctors, one is forced to follow them blindly for the lack of knowledge and information on the subject. Thanks to DoctorC which caters the new breed of educated patients who like be more informed and in tune with the market. They like to research the tests to be taken on various grounds before complying with the same, scrutinize and attain the best possible price and value for money as opposed to simply settling for the doctor’s recommendation.

Based in Hyderabad, DoctorC is a mobile and Internet application that empowers customers to gauge their decisions on medical diagnostic and lab testing based on the list of costs and quality of associated medical tests available. It sorts out data about Healthcare providers and administrations that conduct the test you are looking for with an option for appointment via telephone or its online and mobile platform at special rates that include rebates of up to 15-50%. Ergo creating a level playing field in laboratory testing by ensuring information symmetry which help customers settle on instructed decisions. Partnering with NABL (quality standard granted by the Indian government) accredited centers only, they ensure the best quality available. Analogous to travel aggregators, DoctorC also lets you write and read reviews.

drc3The vanguard Start Up was founded by the late Dr. Dayakar Reddy, with the idea of synchronising the interests of customers and diagnostic centers. It is now held up by its four bastions – Mansi Gandhi, Karan Kurani, Neehar Cherabuddi and Manya Cherabuddi. A former student of Brown University (the US), Neehar is a serial entrepreneur and had prior to this, co founded two Start Ups — Shoutt Inc and Sleephyhead LLC along with Mansi and Karan who are graduates from Cornell University while Manya is a business graduate from University of Virginia, (the US).

At present the Start up sells tests worth Rs 1 crore every year. According to Mansi Gandhi, COO of DoctorC “Indian consumers are looking for more and more healthcare-related queries online. With the diagnostics market slated to be around $10 billion by 2016, we want to be at the forefront bringing the change to healthcare”.

By far the company has raised Rs 2.5 crore through seed funding from California-based Leviathan Investments headed by Anil Dharni, Ram Gudavalli and Andrew Keidel, founder of gaming startup Funzio. It has also bagged investment from Hyderabad-based Spice Capital and the Indian Angel Network member, Sanjay Jesrani, who is also the founder and chief executive of Go North Ventures.

The trailblazer start up will launch its services in Bangalore this week covering Elbit Medical Diagnostics and Dr Lal PathLabs at 10 locations with 15-20% off all their diagnostic tests. They have plans of covering more services in more locations over the next few weeks.
