Healthians.com, a diagnostic and wellness start-up, has raised $3 million (around Rs 20 crore) in Series A Round of funding led by BEENEXT along with Digital Garage, BEENOS and others.
Healthians.com runs on a technology-led asset-light model. The operational model involves working in close partnership with lab owners to significantly increase lab capacity utilisation, upgrade to high-quality infrastructure and implement a proprietary 52-point technology-led quality management system in order to ensure high-quality results.
Anuj Mittal, co-founder of Healthians.com, claimed that the platform gets over 1,000 booking requests every day from Delhi/NCR alone and has collected over 30,000 samples last month.
The platform has conducted over a million diagnostic tests and has served over 150,000 customers in the Delhi/NCR region. The company has its own team of over 200-plus phlebotomists in Delhi/NCR alone, making it the largest home collection service in the country.
“By 2019, we will be India’s largest diagnostic brand,” said Deepak Sahni, founder of Healthians.com.
Teruhide Sato, founder and managing Partner, BEENEXT, said that he saw a sustainable business being created which is there to stay for the long term. Diagnostics is a huge market in India and has room for many more players.
“Healthian’s unique model with focus on quality, cost and customer experience is highly scalable and expandable to other markets,” Sato said.
The future plans of the company include creating the largest umbrella brand in the country by adding over 200 labs and 3,000-plus phlebotomists to its existing network across 30 cities over the next 12-18 months. The business aims to grow swiftly to achieve a 5,00,000 monthly sample load by the end of 2017.
