Bangalore-based Medinfi Healthcare Pvt Ltd,which is a location-based app for finding patient-reviewed clinics in the vicinity and booking doctor appointments, has raised Rs 1 crore ($150,000) in a fresh round of angel funding from four new investors including Gurmeet Chahal, senior vice president and head – healthcare of HCL Technologies, among other investors.
“With this funding, we would be able to further strengthen our content operations in multiple cities while also scaling our user base to both Android as well as iOS users in these cities,” Medinfi Founder Ravi Shankar Mishra said in a statement.
Medinfi offers a web portal as well as Android app that helps users locate nearest doctors and hospitals for their every-day check-ups. Apart from general physicians, users can also locate specialist doctors.
According to Google Play Store data, Medinfi’s Android app has under 5,000 downloads to date. Mishra said it receives roughly 2,000 unique visitors on a monthly basis on the website. Currently, the application is available for users in Bengaluru, Delhi NCR, and Mumbai with information on more than 5,000 verified doctors, hospitals and clinics.
Medinfi users can also review the images, years of experience and other detailed information for more than 3,000 clinics and doctors which were compiled by Medinfi team through actual visits to the clinics.
In August, online doctor search provider Practo raised $90M and has announced a partnership with ride-sharing company Uber, allowing its users to find and book a ride to the doctor’s clinic more easily.
