1mg, Gurugram-based Healthkart\u2019s online drug search business, has acquired MediAngels to strengthen its position in the eHealth space in India.\r\n\r\nWith this move, 1mg will enter the space of super speciality consultations, corporate health services, and insurance partnerships.\r\n\r\nTalking about the acquisition, Prashant Tandon, CEO 1mg said, \u201cOur consumers can now access a deep network of over 450 super specialists across India and the world, and we also get an entry into the corporate health space through this platform. We now offer a comprehensive suite of services to consumers as well as corporate customers which includes ePharmacy, eDiagnostics, eConsultations and Super Speciality Second Opinions as well.\u201d\r\n\r\n1mg, earlier called HealthkartPlus, the drug search business of Healthkart was\u00a0rebranded\u00a0and spun off into a separate entity as 1mg. The company operates an online marketplace for medicines apart from facilitating doctor\u2019s appointment and diagnostic test booking.\r\n\r\nMediAngels was founded in 2011 by Dr. Arbinder Singal and Dr. Debraj Shome. With more than 450 super specialist doctors on its team across 93 specialties, MediAngels claims to have seen a good number of cases in cardiology, cancers, neurosurgery, orthopedics, and pediatric subspecialties and traction from both metros and Tier II cities.\r\n\r\nArbinder Singal, founder of MediAngels added, \u201c Within the 1mg ecosystem, we plan to scale up second opinions and drive B2B engagements with more insurers and corporates. Our robust technology tools will help them optimise employee benefits spends on healthcare and to have a healthier workforce.\u201d\r\n\r\n1mg has been on an acquiring spree this year. Earlier in July 2016, it\u00a0acquired Medd.in, a Mumbai-based platform for booking diagnostic and imaging tests. In April last year, 1MG had raised $6 Mn from Sequoia Capital, Intel Capital, Omidyar Network, and Deep Kalra (co-founder of travel portal MakeMyTrip). It also acquired an online homeopathic drug startup Homeobuy, which has been rebranded to 1MGAyush.\r\n\r\nAccording to an IBEF report, the overall Indian healthcare market is poised at $100 Bn. It is expected to touch $280 Bn by 2020, growing at a CAGR of 22.9%. Other players in this space include NetMeds, CareOnGo, Practo, etc.
