Hyderabad-based Healthcare Start-Up Aayuv Technologies Pvt Ltd, the company behind eKincare, an online platform that enables users to monitor their critical medical information and view it anywhere anytime, has secured Rs.2CR funding from city-based tech incubator-cum-seed fund Bitchemy Ventures and Adroitent Pvt Ltd, a pioneer in healthcare IT.
The round of funding will be used for further product development, hiring and marketing. The service currently in beta also launched eKincare app to easily digitize the existing physical copies of your medical records. eKincare gathers medical results from various healthcare providers, updates profiles, and provides a single repository for users to store all their medical records. It then
identifies potential health risks from the data and informs and motivates them to take necessary steps towards improving their health.
“We are lowering all the barriers/excuses to consolidate one’s medical history by providing the platform for free to host all their medical records. We would decipher the info and convert it into a format (color coded, graphical history and timeline) that is easy
to understand.” says Kiran Kalakuntla, who incorporated Aayuv Technologies in September 2014, after exiting his profile at telecommunications giant AT&T, as a product manager and moving back to India.
The platform is free for the user with no limits on the data stored and allows multiple profile management. eKincare is currently partnered with some of the pioneers in Indian healthcare to bring an intelligent & comprehensive approach to preventive medicine.
“At BitChemy, we are always looking for tech companies that can change how an industry works. As the Indian healthcare story evolves, there are tremendous opportunities for this to happen. We believe eKincare’s approach of combining digitization with deep analytics and home healthcare could offer tremendous value to end consumers and change the rules of the game,” said Sunil Motaparti, founder & director of BitChemy.
“We see a great value in eKincare’s consolidation of medical history like in the west, and building a layer of analytics on top of it to drive healthy behavior”, said Srinath DeviReddy, President of Adroitent Pvt. Ltd.
