HealthKart Plus

HealthKartPlus, an online pharmacy network and medicine solution, has announced the expansion of its service to Bangalore. It was earlier operating in Delhi/NCR and based on the positive feedback received the company has taken a new step by expanding its service to Bangalore.

The company also said in a press release that it would soon expand to other metro cities in the country in a phased manner.

HealthKart founder Prashant Tandon says, "HealthKartPlus has received good reviews in Delhi/NCR for its service and utility as a pocket chemist app. This is a one of a kind service in India and Bangalore, being the technology hub of the country, is the obvious choice for our second location."

 

HealthKartPlus was founded in 2011 that provides ecommerce service for end-users to find and buy the cheapest medicines.  HealthKartPlus connects local pharmacies directly to consumers and also provides them with value added information about their medicines.

HealthKart raised Rs. 27 crore from Sequoia Capital and Omidyar. Prior to that, HealthKart raised $1 million from KAE Capital and Sequoia in seed funding. In June this year, HealthKartPlus raised an undisclosed amount in funding from Intel Capital. The company also offers a free app on Android, iOS and Windows 8 platforms.

A similar such service was launched by Videocon Telecom as we had reported about it earlier, which is an Ayurvedic mobile health service for its subscribers in partnership with Think Health Services.
