Our hybrid model helps in overcoming the challenges of skewed patient-provider ratios and the concentration of providers in a few urban pockets,” added Priyadarshi Mohapatra.
CureBay’s hybrid model
CureBay uses a hybrid model to offer primary healthcare services. It allows users to schedule appointments, provides teleconsultations, delivers medicine, offers diagnostic services and provides admission of patients for tertiary care with its partner hospitals through a booking model.
CureBay hires trained healthcare workers at its clinics who assist walk-in patients in connecting with city-based doctors for consultations. The eClinics also offer diagnostic services through partner labs and deliver medicines.
“We at Elevar Equity have long held the view that rural healthcare platforms need to be custom-designed for this market. CureBay's blended distribution model with assisted tech is well-positioned to address a massive gap - millions of customers are eager to pay for quality healthcare in medically underserved areas,” said
