Anand Lakshman, co-founder and CEO of AddressHealth, said, “The funding allows us to expand the reach of our unique model of healthcare, which leverages schools, to deliver comprehensive primary healthcare to children proactively, at a low cost.”
The startup claims that it is currently serving 30,000+ children in South Bangalore through coordinated, comprehensive clinic-based care (pediatric medical home). By leveraging partnerships with schools, AddressHealth is aiming to reduce costs associated with retail healthcare.
There have been a couple of startups that provide consultation on pediatrics healthcare on their platforms like DoctorInsta and JustDoc. However, AddressHealth is an exclusive platform for children’s healthcare. The startup has tied up with various schools, pre-schools and residential groups providing School Health Programs. It also runs various Child Health Clinics in Bangalore. The startup had raised $333K in its Pre-Series A round from Unitus Seed Fund, in 2014.
