PurpleHealth.com, a 360-degree ‘Health On Demand’ platform, has raised US$ 100,000 from disruptive tech investor, Katabole Technology Venture.
The two year-old PurpleHealth.com empowers consumers to take active control of their health by providing a one-stop seamless interface to choose the right medical practitioners, schedule appointments, set up video & audio chats with doctors and much more, thus helping them better manage their health and wellness interactions. The platform currently has over 38,000 doctors and 4,000 hospitals as part of its vast and growing network.
“We focuses on meeting the country’s healthcare challenges with integrated solutions through a 360-degree health platform. The Indian healthcare sector is expected to register a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 22.9 per cent during 2015-20 and grow to US$ 280 billion. We intend to play a substantial part in that growth story by creating a massive, positive impact on how health & wellness products and services are accessed by and delivered to every individual, corporate & institution,” said Vikram Nair, co-founder & CEO, PurpleHealth.com.
“We will use this round of funding to further build on the PurpleHealth.com product roadmap and strengthen the team,” he added.
“We believe that when it comes to health, people today, by and large, feel disempowered. They want the ability to choose and decide by themselves and they crave the right platform that will give them access to all the information they need to make their health-related decisions”, said Balaji Jagannathan, founder & CEO, Katabole.

Currently, the Healthcare delivery ecosystem operates through individual, independent and unconnected silos. PurpleHealth aims to build collaborative healthcare distribution models with a common customer pool, through integrated technology.
