Medstar: The online pharmacy to keep you on track!5 years ago Ruchika Agarwal
There comes a time when an individual is compelled to pause and reflect on the world around them, constantly on the move and constantly changing. The one thing that doesn’t show any sign of slowing down is India’s growing population, a phenomenon that has become a major concern today.
Unfortunately, yet another field has been experiencing a severe growth spurt and that is the difficult territory of varied lifestyle diseases, dangerous and chronic in nature. The statistics from the 2010 WHO Global Burden of Disease project has helped lay emphasis on the country’s current health situation:
- Cardiac – 50 million patients
- Diabetes – 63 million patients
- Cancer – 1.2 million new cases every year
- Stroke – 0.9 million cases every year
- Renal – 175,000 transplants required
Tough to live with and not completely curable, these illnesses and conditions can only be kept in control. Any individual suffering from illness is required to be dependent on medication as it is the only mechanism that can help keep these chronic diseases in check. Therefore, when it comes to the consumption of their multiple sets of pills, it is necessary for these patients to follow a strict schedule.
It is crucial for the patients to have a well-stocked storage of their regular and important medicines. However it is tough to follow up on that activity at all times. No matter how close one lives to a pharmacy or how many visits are paid to one, no one is equipped to be prepared at all times, especially when health fails at inopportune moments.
This is when an online pharmacy steps in.
Stocking up with medicines online
Medstar.in is a revolutionary venture helping enhance the online medical world one step at a time. Medstar is in the business of providing genuine medicines at reasonable and discounted prices across the city of Hyderabad. This online pharmacy also provides the benefit of free doorstep delivery to individuals dealing with the regular consumption of medicines.
Today, almost 30% of medicines in the market are allegedly tampered with. It comes as a welcome assurance that Medstar’s supplies give the guaranty of 100% genuine medicines. No medication is delivered to a customer without their authentic batch numbers and the receipt. Accompanying the promise of authenticity is the discount of 15% which can be availed on most of the branded products while the discount can even go up to 30% for speciality items, surgical and other products.
The online pharmacy has been licensed from the State Drug Control Administration and they also offer value added services like free SMS reminders, blood pressure and sugar level checking to its customers.
Medstar is equipped with a wide range of medicines from all popular pharmacy brands as well as surgical, disposables, anti-cancer and general healthcare products by Indian and International companies. Certified and qualified pharmacists manage the Medstar warehouses and these professionals process each order discreetly.
Mr. Chandrakiran Mallarapu, the founder and CEO, pursued his entrepreneurial interests in the field of mail-order pharmacies and that resulted in Medstar.in. This healthcare company has now set its sight on acquiring 10,000 paying customers by the fiscal year-end of 2015. Focusing on chronic disease management, Medstar raised its seed funding from Angaros Group, a Singapore based operating holding company and a leading provider of advisory, capital and consulting services to early stage companies worldwide.
