Health-tech start-up HealthPlix Technologies has raised USD 13.5 million as part of its ongoing Series B funding led by Lightspeed, with participation from existing investors JSW Ventures, Kalaari and Chiratae.
The startup said in a statement it plans to grow five times by expanding the doctor base in existing geographies, adding new towns and medicine specialties and bolstering its team and product. HealthPlix makes it easier for doctors to speed up their practices, maintain patient records, offer remote consults and improve patient outcomes through modern technology.
"Doctors are at the core of healthcare delivery, and at the core of a doctor’s day is his interaction with the patient. These few minutes matter most. This interaction is the moment of truth, where USD 88 billion worth of annual healthcare spend is decided," Sandeep Gudibanda, serial entrepreneur and CEO of HealthPlix shared, adding that the company's goal was drive better health outcomes by assisting doctors and hospitals digitally through assistive-AI driven electronic medical records.
Founded by Gudibanda, Raghuraj Sunder Raju, and Prasad Basavaraj, the Bengaluru-based startup helps doctors digitise clinical operations and clinical treatment methodologies. While the pandemic has boosted healthtech start-ups, most of them are primarily focused on patients or health administrators and limited to areas such as appointment management or drug delivery.
“We are doubling down our efforts to help doctors provide in-person or remote consultation to their patients using the same digital platform seamlessly. Doctors using HealthPlix save time and get a unified view of their patient’s disease journey which aids their treatment decisions," said Raghuraj Sunder Raju, co-founder, HealthPlix.
