Bengaluru-based healthtech startup HealthPlix yesterday raised $6 million in a Series B round led by JSW Ventures with participation from existing investors Chiratae Ventures and Kalaari Capital.
Founded in 2016 by Raghuraj Sunder Raju, Prasad Basavaraj, and Sandeep Gudibanda, HealthPlix is a B2B2C solution that offers Electronic Medical Record (EMR) software to medical practitioners for clinical decision support (CDS). It generates e-presecriptions and helps clinics manage their operations digitally.
Commenting on the investment round, Sandeep in a statement said,
“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,”
Affirming their investment in HealthPlix, Gaurav Sachdeva, managing partner of JSW Ventures said,
“We believe that HealthPlix is uniquely positioned to take advantage of strong tailwinds that the Indian healthcare industry is experiencing in terms of increased medical information capture, interoperability, and automation,”
HealthPlix on the other side is also a mobile app for consumers to avail video consultations from highly-qualified specialists and doctors. The company claims that over 50,000 consultations are being conducted daily across 12 medical specialities in over 180 cities in India.
The company has also onboarded an additional 15,000 doctors to meet skyrocketing demand amid the COVID-19 crisis as the patients are unable to visit doctors offline.
HealthPlix is exploring collaborations with state governments to make available COVID-19 disease information on a single platform and assess outcomes of various treatments.
