PathDoor.com brings diagnostic tests to patient’s doorstep
Taking healthcare to the next level, PathDoor.com, Bengaluru based technology start-up which has brought all kinds of pathology lab services to patient’s doorstep providing free test sample collection services across locations in Bengaluru is expanding its at-home lab services to Mumbai and Delhi.
Commenting on this, Niharika Goel Jhunjhunwala, Co-Founder and CEO, PathDoor.com said, “Our country spends less than 3% of its GDP on the health care sector. Hence, a lot of work needs to be done in this sector. We have tried to merge technology and medical services in the best possible manner. Our website is extremely user friendly and you can search in terms of area, labs, tests and prices. We truly stand for cost free convenience and transparency. Thus, we are working towards systematizing a market involved in 70% of all medical treatments: the diagnostic lab market.”
There are few diagnostic centres which have online existence and display their information but most diagnostic centres lack the online presence. As such there is no portal, which displays information about all the laboratories in terms of the test they do, their rates, whether they have home collection facility, and what is the rate of that facility, whether they are accredited and basic precautions to be carried out during the test procedure. Pathdoor.com tries to solve these questions by helping patients know each and every detail about the test.
Dr Ketan Jhunjunwala, Founder of PathDoor.com said “Being a doctor I used to see the practical problems being faced by patients in every day testing and realized that there was a gap in terms of transparency in the pathology laboratory market in India. I strongly believe that an effective and fast path lab services which can be delivered at home will provide immense support in faster medication process”.
