The frequent topic of conversation that buzzes around at social meets in India is the awful experiences people had to endure at hospitals and clinics in the country. Often these discussions are extremely off-putting and are concluded with harsh criticisms of doctors and hospitals. The highest maternal and infant mortality rate in the world is a clear evidence of the pitiable state of the healthcare domain of the country. As per the reports of Human Development Index-2014, India ranks 135th out of 186 countries in the healthcare domain. Despite being the prime human necessity, the fragmented industry is an unsystematic and unapproachable one with a serious lack of orientation hampering positive customer experience.
Understanding the need of the hour, Qikwell Technologies was incepted in the year 2011 with a mission to make healthcare more accessible and consumer friendly. Headquartered in Bangalore, the startup gives prime importance to resolving fundamental problems related to Indian healthcare industry such as crowded practices, poor consumer experience and lack of transparency that impinge on the consumers, the doctors, the hospital staff and administrators. The company offers information on doctors, live information on doctor’s availability, online appointment booking, instant appointment confirmation, delay/or schedule change notifications and fair & transparent queuing system. The ever growing demands for best-in-class healthcare services paved the pathway for the company to climb up the growth ladder.
Bringing Indian Healthcare at par with Global Standards
Crafted with the vision to bridge the gap between the Indian and international healthcare standard, the company’s website qikwell.com and Qikwell mobile are blessings for people, since with the assistance of these two platforms, they can connect with top doctors and specialists within 30 seconds. The venture takes pride in the fact that it has the highest number of paramount doctors on one platform in the country. Qikwell has served over 20 lakh consumers till date and has attained a steady monthly growth rate of 25 percent, which makes it India’s best budding healthcare technology firm. Apart from this, more than two lakh doctor-patient correlations take place every month via the company’s platform, which is recorded as the highest in India. “We have the largest network of live appointments of doctors and hospitals to choose from on qikwell.com,” asserts Krishna Prasad Chitrapura, Co-Founder, Qikwell.
Making Healthcare Simple & Pleasant
Qikwell is the only company to have scaled its technology for clinics, hospitals and hospital chains. Some of them are Fortis, Manipal and Narayana Hrudayalaya. The credentials for the company’s augmentation in the healthcare domain are given to the dedicated team of more than 100 individuals who continuously thrive to deliver unsurpassed services by making the consumers their first priority. The individuals work as one team who are transparent about everything and are always ready to accept responsibilities. The team believes in agility and prudency and also takes out time for fun amidst work which keeps them motivated at all times.
Restyling the Healthcare Sector in Bringing About Greater Vigor
This zealous group of people who work together to bring about orientation in the healthcare sector envisions expanding its services in all Indian metros by the end of the year apart from Delhi, Chennai and Hyderabad where it is already operating. Qikwell foresees making consumer access to doctors more simple than booking a taxi service and more pleasant than visiting a hotel in the near future.
