Imedilane a Delhi based Healthcare based startup focusing on Telemedicine based Virtual / Tele & Email Consultation has raised angel funding amount of approx $40K from Angel Investors.
The startup was Founded by Shakti Anand, an Ex – Military Engineering Service Officer and alumni of IIM Bangalore having 12 + yrs of experience. He and his wife Khushboo Anand decided to start a Virtual Consultation platform after seeing the problem which there family members & friends faced staying in Tier2 & Tier3 city on daily basis as most of the best Health Care Practitioners are in Metro city. Building on the concept Shakti Anand made the prototype model which was backed by Angel Investor.
During initial research, he found that almost all people face problem of finding good certified Doctors having qualification from institutes as “Most of the information is based on word of mouth shared by their relatives or friends” said Shakti Anand, adding that there was no centralized system or portal providing End to End Solution for consultation.
Imedilane initiative is helping patient to save the time and money from travelling far distance, removing the hassle of finding places to stay and giving service to patient to speak with right doctors of their choice from home Via Video Calling, Email Consultation and Tele Calling (with or without Internet). The startup’s team is presently focusing on Tier 2 & 3 cities of India and has also started rendering its service for the International patients for customize consultant service and has plan to target African and UAE market going with the theme of Go Global by Prime Minister Narendar Modi.
Imedilane is also helping doctor’s to assist patience in a better manner as they need not to travel far distance within cities or other towns as they will be able to provide consultation from one place and enhance their reach of service. The company has also provided software to doctor’s by which they can manage the clinics better, interact on social media platform and save time for their critical patients.
Presently the startup has started the operation with a team of more than 120 Doctors based out of Delhi and has reach out to more than 8,000 user in last few weeks.
