iClinic to foray into 20 towns in next two months
Tapping a cumulative workforce of nearly 5 million people working in 5000 factories of corporates across India, iClinic Healthcare Pvt. Ltd. is making onsite specialist healthcare a reality. Conceptualized and founded jointly by Mr. Sanjoy Mukerji, Ex-Chief Commercial Officer of Vodafone India and Mr. Varun Berry, Managing Director, Britannia Industries Ltd , iClinic has tied up with corporate organizations like Vodafone, Aircel and Jubilant to set up diagnostic units in their offices, guest houses and factories in Ranchi, Guwahati and Gajraula for the benefit of their employees and families. iClinic is reaching a total ecosystem of 20 million family members of workers in upcountry factories who do not have access to good healthcare and that too at nearly zero cost. They plan to aggressively foray into 20 towns in the next 2 months.
In these specialist onsite factory units, a patient may consult a specialist in a metro, over the web, with prior appointment, with a local doctor sitting by their side and share their reports over the platform and get a written consultation summary from the specialist. The local doctor will do a physical examination for the patient, help with uploading the reports and communicating with the specialist and issue a prescription. Follow up consults to share diagnostic reports are also possible.
Elaborating on the operations, growth and future plans, Mr. Sanjoy Mukerji, Managing Director iClinic remarked, “We are extremely happy with the positive response from patients who have been treated by our specialists and this has further boosted our confidence to expand this model. We will use the fresh equity to rapidly expand our operations to most of the potential 1000 towns in India that have broadband and 3G and to thousands of factories and offices in upcountry towns who would like to extend this benefit for their workers and staff and their families. We are enabling the factory workforce and their families to access specialists and super specialists in metros and save time, hassle and money. Hence we can add value to people’s lives in a significant manner and facilitate their journey to good health and happiness.”
