Healthcare startup HealthEnablr India Pvt Ltd, has raised $800,000 (around Rs 5.4 crore) in seed funding from a group of unnamed professionals, including some prominent investors from Silicon Valley and Hong Kong.
“We will look at raising our next round of funding mid this year, with the aim of expanding the business to eight more cities,” said Bamasish Paul, CEO and co-founder, HealthEnablr.
Founded in September 2015, the startup connects patients and physicians via video, telephonic conversations and messages besides offering doctor discovery services. Currently operating in Mumbai and Kolkata, HealthEnablr aims to have a network of over 50,000 verified doctors by the end of 2016. It offers products and services through its mobile and web application, and has plans to expand into a healthcare marketplace, enabling patients to choose and buy healthcare packages from HealthEnablr as well as its growing network of affiliate partners.
HealthEnablr would compete with Karma Healthcare, DoctorsCabin, eVaidya and others on the tele-medicine side.
