The company which is India’s leading primary care aggregator already has a network of 3,100 primary care centers across 1,000 cities in India plans to expand and enriched its medical network to include more and more consumer needs and create a robust primary care ecosystem.

A majority of this investment will be made in the following areas like creating an ecosystem through consolidating the vast primary care network by creating new medical networks and consumer products, build distribution channels to cover individuals, corporates and insurers, augment technology investments to make easier access to primary health across the country, acquisitions of other healthcare startups, expanding footprint to international geographies like Middle East, Malaysia, Indonesia, etc.
 
Speaking on the occasion, Varun Gera, CEO, HealthAssure, says, “Our vision is and will remain to bring good health closer to everyone and in this endeavor we are committed to invest $15 million over the next 3 years to creating and efficient ecosystem in the fractured infrastructure of primary healthcare in India so that more and more people can gain access to better healthcare and do so at significantly affordable rates. There is an increasing need for preventive healthcare in the Indian market and our intent is to providing its access through various channels including insurance, individual customers, employees, etc. We plan to have serviced 2.5- 3 million customers by 2020 with this fresh round of investment towards the growth of our business.”

The Company works with some large firms in the insurance/corporate segments—-Apollo Munich, Max Bupa, Cigna, ICICI Prudential, Royal Sundram, Loreal, FedEx, Deloitte, Max Life among many others.  

Sharing his views on the Indian Healthcare sector, Gera said, “In the Indian market, preventive care, which is primary care, is in the early stage and there exist many big gaps. There are not enough quality medical centers around and that is where HealthAssure comes in. We hope to bridge this gap with our platform to ensure maximum people get the access they need to meet their day to day healthcare needs.”

The startup provides comprehensive medical services for individuals by not only helping them choose a doctor, specialist, pathology, diagnostics, tele doctor, home care, etc and book appointments, based on their needs such as proximity, most convenient day, time etc. but also enables reminders and finally the report delivery/follow up consultation requirements at the end of every visit.
