Medical Tourism Startup PlanMyMedicalTrip Raises Angel Funding of Rs. 1.25 Crores
23 Sep, 2016
PlanMyMedicalTrip.com, a platform that offers international patients access to medical care at competitive prices, recently announced the news of its 1.25 crore funding from three angel investors – Bhanu Vikram Parsotam, Rohan Desai and Paras Patel. The funding was led by Founder and company CEO, Anurav Rane. The venture intends on utilising the fresh capital to increase its catalyst network across the world and improving their customer’s digital experience. These apart, the portal also plans on expanding its reach to countries that are rich with prospects for medical tourism such as Thailand, UAE, Brazil and Germany.
The funding goes on to prove that the field of medical tourism holds much promise. PlanMyMedicalTrip.com, in specific, combines healthcare, tourism and e-commerce in a way that’s unique and powerful. The portal’s intervention makes it simple for a patient looking for specialised treatments to choose a hospital and doctor who best understands his/her needs. Because the international patient departments at many hospitals aren’t well equipped to handle patients from abroad, PlanMyMedicalTrip.comeffectively becomes a one-stop destination for patients to compare doctors and hospitals, read reviews, receive end-to-end guidance on the treatment, travel and stay and be rest assured of quality. All this at a treatment cost that can’t be matched by any reputed hospital.
Launched in 2012, PlanMyMedicalTrip.com is a Pune-based solutions provider for anyone looking for affordable medical services and necessary infrastructure at hospitals that best address the patient’s concern. PlanMyMedicalTrip.com platform leverages its 1500+ tie-ups with reputed hospitals and doctors in India and Turkey to provide the best service to international patients.
Talking about this new development, PlanMyMedicalTrip.com Founder and CEO, Anurav Rane said, “Even though our team strictly adheres to the company’s growth strategy to achieve its goals, this funding will help us serve our customers even better. It will also assist us in keeping our energies focused on our philosophy of ‘Humanity is the only religion’.”
Highlighting the reason for investing in PlanMyMedicalTrip.com, Bhanu Vikram Parsotam said, “I have been a part of the healthcare sector in the USA for close to two decades now. So, I am familiar with patient requirements here and strongly believe that PlanMyMedicalTrip.com is doing the right thing at the right time. Together with the PlanMyMedicalTrip.com representatives, I’m positive that we will be able to boost healthcare facilities across the globe.”
The three angel investors have a key role to play in PlanMyMedicalTrip.com’s growth story. The news of funding also validates the portal’s significant contribution in the healthcare space. Bhanu Vikram Parsotam has been involved with Pensacola Home Health Care for 20 years and has previously also funded hotels and motels in the USA. Rohan Desai (30), has 10 years of experience in stock trading and investment and provides stock advisory services at www.rdviews.com. Paras Patel (29), meanwhile, is a real estate investor and an MBA by qualification.
PlanMyMedicalTrip platform has successfully treated over 3,000 patients since it launched in 2007 under the brand name Best Medical Centers. Its catalysts, who refer patients to PlanMyMedicalTrip.com, are spread across US, UK, Africa and Middle East to name a few.
