How many pharmacies have Sehat Sathi digitized as of now and what are the targets by the end of this year?
Three passionate innovators- Shreyans Mehta, Nikhil Baheti and Saida Dhanavath, took it upon themselves to start an initiative that could revolutionize the Indian healthcare setup. Their own experiences with an inefficient healthcare system prompted them to build up a platform that could change the way India looks at healthcare. And what better way than to do it through technology. After years of repeated efforts and sincere dedication, they built a healthcare ecosystem powered by AI and Big Data to solve the gaps in the Indian healthcare system. After extensive research spanning over 800 villages over a period of three years, MedCords was launched in 2017 in Kota, Rajasthan, and is the only tech-based organization that offers a complete healthcare ecosystem by connecting patients, doctors, pharmacies, and laboratories. Its main motive is to provide transparent, easy-to-use, and affordable healthcare to every nook & corner of India. It provides an all-in-one healthcare management system for its users, where they can consult with trusted doctors, reach out to nearby medical stores to get the medicines home-delivered, and securely store their medical records at one place. The platform has been widely adopted by the rapidly progressing semi-urban and rural markets of India and already boasts of serving more than 3.5 million users base from more than 2 million families spread across India.
