Healthtech venture, HealthPlix Technologies has raised $6 million in its Series B round led by JSW Ventures. The round also recorded participation from existing investors Chiratae Ventures, and Kalaari Capital. The firm has raised $10 billion since its inception in 2016.
HealthPlix was started by Raghuraj Sunder Raju, Prasad Basavaraj, and Sandeep Gudibanda with the idea to help doctors in digitizing clinical operations and clinical treatment methodologies. The startup works on a B2B2C model and provides Electronic Medical Record (EMR) software helping them with Clinical Digital Support (CDS), generating e-prescriptions and virtually managing their clinic.
Sandeep Gudibanda, co-founder and CEO of HealthPlix Technologies stated, “We have been helping thousands of doctors in India to elevate their clinical practice to truly an evidence based treatment methodology using HealthPlix EMR and now we believe that we can use Real World Evidence (RWE) Platform to assess efficacy of various treatments being deployed and thus contribute our bit in the research of much needed COVID treatment.”
HealthPlix also has a consumer app which allows the users to take video consultations from highly qualified specialist and super specialist doctors. They are currently facilitating over 50K consultations a day across 12 medical specialties in more than 128 cities. Due to limited physical interaction because of Covid-19, doctors have been using the digital platforms to support their patients.
Platforms like Practo, 1mg Technologies, Mfine have recorded a surge in userbase in the past 2 months as more and more people are turning to digital channels. HealthPlix has onboarded about 15K doctors to meet the growing need on their platform. They are also trying Government collaborations to bring Covid support on one platform.
