In a populous country like ours, it’s not hard to find a doctor, it’s hard to find a reliable doctor. More often than not, we need an expert, a specialist who knows how to treat us without looting us, someone we can trust. Credihealth, as the name suggests, helps patients find the right hospitals, right doctors at the right cost. Which hospital’s centre of excellence is cardiology? Where can a patient get the best chemotherapy in the Mumbai region? Who can help successful perform a liver transplant? Credihealth is the answer to all these questions and more. Currently live in 6 cities, the start-up has served more than 20,000 patients in the last quarter. What makes Credihealth start out except for bringing transparency in the much needed current healthcare scenario?
This patient-oriented website recently got a makeover, an easy to use portal, it ensures that when a patient lands on the website, he finds it easy to enquire, book and talk to an in-house medical expert. First of its kind startup in India, Credihealth gives their patients ‘personalized guidance’ throughout their medical journey. From booking your first appointment, helping you compare and select the best treatment option, to post-operative care and even rehabilitation – Credihealth is your health partner.
Ravi Virmani, ex-COO Max hospitals felt the need for a change in the existing healthcare scenerio. People would call him for advice to the best experts. This acted as a catalyst to start Credihealth in late 2013. Late July 2015, Ravi Virmani won the award for “Entrepreneur of the Year in Service Business – Healthcare” presented at the 5th edition of Entrepreneur India Awards where he was also the Guest of Honour and Guest Speaker on how young businesses are bringing change in India as well as the world.
Serving since early 2014, this startup currently has over 30 employees and is currently looking to raise funds. With over 400 hospitals pan-India, Credihealth has created the largest hospital network in India.
Bringing a change in the digital healthcare space in India, Credihealth is creating awareness on social media giants. With our consistent presence on Twitter and Instagram, we strive to reach more number of youngsters. Facebook communities is another way, we connect to people dealing with Polycystic Ovarian Disorder (PCOD), Diabetes and even serious diseases like Cancer. The New Moms Club has more than 6000 new moms who are constantly sharing their doubts and questions pertaining to motherhood.
