Founded in 2013 by Saurabh Arora, Lybrate is an online and mobile-based platform that connects patients with doctors.
Venture capital firm Nexus Venture Partners has invested $1.23 million in India and US-based online healthcare startup Lybrate, as per a VC Circle report.
Founded in 2013 by Saurabh Arora, Lybrate is an online and mobile-based platform that connects patients with doctors. Patients can use the service for free to find trusted doctors recommended by other patients near their locations and also book online appointments with them, while doctors use it to manage appointments, medical records, payment, billing and expenses for their clinics. Lybrate claims its platform empowers doctors with critical patient information anytime, anywhere so that they can access patient’s medical history in a short time.
Lybrate’s service is currently available in over 20 cities, including Bangalore, Mumbai, Chennai, Delhi and Hyderabad. The service is available online and also on iPhone & Android devices.
“In emergency situations, a delay of a few minutes to get the right help can make a huge difference between life and death,” Arora told VC Circle.
He further added, “With the poor infrastructure in India to take care of emergencies, we depend a lot on our social network. The Lybrate smartphone app is designed to ensure that we can both reach out for help and are also able to save the lives of our loved ones when they need us the most.”
