SDG 3 Social Entrepreneurs

MERA DOCTOR

VISION

To gain mass recognition in healthcare by delivering a unique value proposition, an easy way to get reliable health advice in a convenient location

GOALS

We take real-time, high-quality consultations from carefully vetted doctors. We’ve now done three lakh virtual doctor consultations for people from every corner of India. Moving forward they want to achieve a 40% month-on-month growth for amount of consultations conducted.

AIM

MeraDoctor wants to build trust and loyalty by smoothly connecting patients with reputable physicians only, and ensures that both sides have a high-quality experience.

PROBLEM

They are currently trying to gain recognition as a certified platform so that they can give proper access to healthcare to the India population. Up to 80% of rural Indians rely on unqualified local providers (quacks) for everyday healthcare because while rural areas are home to 72% of India’s population, only 26% of licensed doctors live there.

NEXT STEPS

MeraDoctor is looking for investments (7 Cr) to enhance its technology platform, scale up its doctor base, add to its technology and management teams, and grow to become the largest virtual healthcare platform in India.
The funding will be further used to:

  • building operational capacity (in terms of medical staff) to handle growth
  • validating a sales and marketing approach across our distribution partnerships
  • developing more rigorous research and monitoring capacity internally to carefully track MeraDoctor usage and impact
  • continuing to develop service features that appeal to specific target segments in their market
