The startup registered 5x growth amid Covid-19 pandemic

Hyderabad, NFAPost: The coronavirus pandemic had forced a strict lockdown and with the virus spreading thick and fast, accessibility to quality healthcare became a challenge for many. DoctorC, a MedTech startup in the diagnostic service delivery, is playing an important role in this space.

While the government initially took the onus on themselves to test and treat people infected with coronavirus, the advent of private players to assist the government and the people were timely.

With a host of private testing services available, the common man’s options increased. In the forefront of the fight against the dreaded disease, DoctorC, a Hyderabad-based tech-first healthcare provider, has been making waves by helping people get access to tests and treatments in a timely manner.

Affordable service

DoctorC has been on the forefront, extending their home-based services to over 50,000 families in five months in Hyderabad, Chennai and Bangalore. The company sources say the startup registered 5x growth in their home service, especially in South India.

The home service facility that DoctorC dispenses is hassle-free, affordable, and reliable. Working with NABL accredited labs have ensured the highest quality of healthcare provided by Doctor C. Their partner labs include some of the largest diagnostic chains in the country, thereby providing accurate test results.

The provider has left no stone unturned in taking appropriate safety measures to ensure there is no unwanted spread of infection. DoctorC also sets up social distancing markings, decontamination areas and isolation zones; and provides equipment like masks, sanitisers, PPEs, etc. 

Referral network

In providing so many services, it is only natural for DoctorC to record a five-fold growth during the lockdown period.

If a customer doesn’t prefer the home service, where a healthcare service done at home by DoctorC medic, customer can choose to visit any healthcare provider in DoctorC’s referral network and get tested.

Commenting on the company’s intervention, DoctorC CEO and co-founder Neehar Cherabuddi said DoctorC is undoubtedly elated at the growth.

“COVID-19 has made consumers more aware of their health than ever before. With the increased adoption of tele-health and at-home testing, customers are able to access high-quality healthcare more easily than ever before,” said DoctorC CEO and co-founder Neehar Cherabuddi.

Employee health

DoctorC CEO and co-founder Neehar Cherabuddi and his team have also successfully piloted the Safe Workplace of the Future plan and have been instrumental in making workplaces safe.

DoctorC has ensured working in offices will be back in the future by incorporating a safety dashboard to monitor employees’ health, developing a mobile app, installing automated thermal cameras, facial recognition to alert authorities when not wearing masks and a respiratory monitoring system.

Prominent and nxt-gen actress Ritu Varma, who used DpctorC’s services, said she is used DoctorC’s home service recently.

“It was a great experience – smooth, hassle-free and in the comfort of your own home. In today’s environment, such convenience, safety, and quality are very much needed! Kudos to the team,” said Ritu Varma.
