Sharing her views, Rachita Kasliwal, Co-Founder, Medyseva shared, “Medyseva’s journey began during the pandemic. We realized that our friends and relatives living in rural areas did not have access to good doctors and were unaware or uncomfortable with mobile apps. That is when Medyseva was born.We thus started small by bringing on board our own friends and acquaintances who were doctors. We also took the support of the gram panchayat, which plays an integral part of village life and this also ensured faith in our brand and our services amongst the villagers”.
AI, Automation, and digital technology isalso bringing a paradigm shift in the industry. “At Medyseva, we plan to use Predictive Analysis to identify risk factors and recommend the right treatment by comparing patient data with data from thousands of other patients, while also reducing costs. Our intent is to identify diseases which are prevalent in certain regions of rural India and provide preventive care for the community towards building a healthy society”, Dr. Vishesh further adds.
The start-up is now preparing for the next round of funding which can be as early as next year.The company will be adding more services to their portfolio like introducing mobile apps for service providers, bringing more medical equipment into the Kendras and putting a system in place whereby the doctors can enlist themselves to join hands with Medyseva and the cause. Medyseva is also on a hiring spree – it is now recruiting several people under IT and Sales departments and isalso inviting doctors to be a part of this fast-growing telemedicine universe.
