India and Singapore-based online healthcare service platform, OurHealthMate has raised $440K (Rs 2.7 crore) in seed funding led by Bimal Shah, Singapore-based Benjamin Tsai and an international angel syndicate led by trader Ben Ball.
Started by Akash Kumar and Abhinav Krishna, OurHealthMate was incubated in the JFDI accelerator in 2013. The funding raised will be used to expand across Asia, and recruit 6-16 people into their teams across India and Singapore.
OHM is a platform for both Non-resident Indians (NRIs) and medical practitioners. NRIs can use it to search (from a network of clinics), book and pay for health checkups of their family members back home. After a family member has consulted the doctor, they can also share progress and results with their family through the company’s secure patient portal.
Hospitals and clinics on the other hand can use OHM to manage interactions with their patients on the cloud. For the same, the company offers an electronic medical record (EMR) system. The integrated platform reminds patients about their coming appointments, as well as stores and updates patients’ information, which is securely accessible online 24/7.
As of now, the company claims to have over 2,000 doctors and 700 medical centres listed from over 50 cities in India. In addition, its EMR system is already being used by 46 medical centres, out of which 12 are paid customers.
