Credihealth has raised $1.5 million to provide healthcare information in India.
Credihealth launched in 2014 to advise healthcare patients on health-related decision-making via web, hotline and Whatsapp. “Due to lack of transparency in the Indian healthcare system, patients have to run from pillar to post for finding relevant information that can help in decision-making,” says co-founder Ravi Virmani.
The platform offers information about hospital services and costs and facilitates consultations with doctors and specialists. Credihealth, based in Gurgaon, works with more than 630 hospitals across India.
Credihealth’s pre-Series A investors include Tolaram Inc., Mountain Pine Capital, and former KPMG partner Bala Swaminathan.
