Hoping to expand its outreach and services to better serve the needs of the Pakistani medical sector online, Find My Doctor, a healthcare-focused startup, has managed to raise Rs. 20 million in funding.
The startup focuses on facilitating people by locating hospitals, blood banks, ambulances and certified doctors through its app — which is available on popular mobile platforms Android and iOS both.
Users can also book appointments through Find My Doctor app.
After a slow start, the startup has finally seen a huge investment after almost two years. During that time, the app has added listings for around 1,800 doctors, their qualifications, specialization, experience, availability and their fee.
Moreover, the app also helps the patients to record their medical history for up to 10 years.
Lab Test At Home
Last month, the startup also launched another service called, ‘Lab Test at Home’.
The new service will be officially unveiled in a launching ceremony. According to sources, the service will be available in Hyderabad, Sukkur, Lahore, Multan, Faisalabad, Islamabad and Rawalpindi.
Currently, Essa Laboratory, NIBD Hospital and National Medical Centre have been taken on board to conduct medical tests through the facility. Collaboration with more labs is also expected.
Speaking to a local media outlet, CEO Saad Siddiqui said:
Healthcare is a difficult market. The funds will enable us to offer three more services to the patients and expand outreach in other cities of the country as well this year.
Our aim is to offer these services in at least three other cities by December 2017. We will be a virtual hospital in 3-4 years.
Hoping to strengthen the healthcare community by providing fast and reliable services, Siddiqui said:
“We are looking to reduce delivery time, which can go up to a maximum of three hours right now, to around an hour.”
With competition rapidly increasing in the medical sector in Pakistan, Find My Doctor is looking to make the most of its recent funding and serve its customers better.
