The healthcare industry is one of the fastest growing industries in the world and business models are being prepared to evolve the industry and make it accessible to everyone out there. The industry in India itself is expected to reach $280 Bn by the year 2020.
Gone are the days when you had to go sit outside a doctor’s cabin and wait for your turn in order to get yourself checked. With advancement in technology, people realizing the value of time and hence, technology has been integrated with the health industry to create the healthcare app responsible for your health progress known as “Lybrate”.
Lybrate is a “Mobile First” platform which provides accessible healthcare to all. The very basis of this app, developed by Rahul Narang, who brings along 6 years of experience in application development and Saurabh Arora, IIT Delhi and Columbia University alumnus, was to search for a doctor and book an appointment. But the app has evolved at a much faster rate and is an all-in-one solution to your health problems with features like virtual consultation within the reach of patients and doctors.
The idea behind Lybrate
According to Saurabh,” The source of the idea was to avoid the fear of unknown in ensuring better health for the people and their loved ones.” He also mentioned, “These techniques are in maturing stages where both patient and doctors are exploring and enjoying the innovative ways of healthcare delivery.”
With the help of Lybrate, all the major health issues can be accessed right from your smartphone. The interface simplifies the process of getting free consultation from a trusted doctor around the country.
There are numerous companies which are connecting doctors and patients with a motive to book an appointment, but Lybrate allows the patients to talk to the doctors and receive virtual consultation usually free of charge. Although one can always meet up and then the doctor might charge you a fee.
