iClinic Healthcare all set to raise Rs 25 crore

In its bid to energise the online health segment in the country, particularly in semi-urban and rural areas, iClinic Healthcare Pvt Ltd. is in talks with leading private equity companies and individuals to raise the first tranche to the tune of Rs 25 crore.

iClinic Healthcare is jointly founded by Vodafone India ex-Chief Commercial Officer Sanjoy Mukerji and Britannia Industries Ltd Managing Director Varun Berry to make quality healthcare a reality in India.

The company aims to provide specialist care to patients in semi-urban towns by setting up centres from where they may contact specialists and super specialists in metro locations with the help of the local doctor and consult them for diagnosis, advice and treatment. The consultation will happen over an online video call with easy exchange of the patient’s reports over the web and will result in a specialists’s consultation summary and a prescription.

Detailing on the strategy, Managing Director Sanjoy Mukerji said, ‘With over 27 years of successful corporate careers behind us, Varun and I have a fair amount of equity and credibility with many highly placed corporate seniors who have faith in our integrity and commitment and the ability to take a new concept and make it large. I am sure that they would be willing to invest in our organisation and help it grow to its real potential.’

iClinic Healthcare will use the fresh equity to rapidly expand its operations to most of the potential 1,000 towns in India that have broadband and 3G and to thousands of factories and offices in upcountry towns which would like to extend this benefit for their workers and staff and their families.
 ‘We are guided by a single-minded objective to provide quality healthcare services to everybody, anywhere and everywhere. We are determined to take healthcare to the next level and are reaching patients in over 40 remote towns in India as a first step to reaching millions in the need of specialist care,’ Sanjoy added.
