About the Company
Headquartered in Bengaluru, Eka.Care was founded in 2020 by Sahni and Deepak Tuli. The startup aspires to develop a digitally-enabled ecosystem for the healthcare domain that bridges healthcare providers and patients for better medical outcomes.
The startup has innovated an AI-based symptom-checker that helps patients to document symptoms and understand medical conditions accordingly. The assessments generated by the symptom ai-tech helps in efficient and effective diagnosis. It is currently available in more than 10 languages, equipping every Indian family with a platform to create multiple profiles, record information such as vaccination charts for children, developmental milestones, prescriptions, lab reports, scans, and share documents with healthcare providers and medical consultants.
Eka.Care integrated with the CoWIN portal in the month of June, providing the booking of vaccination slots to a number of citizens, making it the first company to mark such a performance.
Purpose of Investment
The company said it would use the funds to increase its unit, product improvement, marketing, and assist doctors in setting up its digital medical clinics.
What the CEO has to say
Deepak Tuli, co-founder and COO of Eka.Care said, “Health records are the fundamental requirement for a more stable health economy. In India, we are not used to filing health records digitally, which results in additional repeat tests, and patients end up unnecessarily paying a way higher cost for their treatment.”
He added, “The way health care is being performed in the country is going through a change. Both healthcare providers and patients require technological support to adapt to the change. We are creating solutions to adapt to their changing demands.”
