A startup story of a healthcare networking app Docquity
It's not always about ideas.
Sometimes experiencing a hazardous situation pushes entrepreneurs to bring revolution.
A CEO and co-founder of Docquity Indranil Roychowdhury has undergone the same circumstances.
His father was hospitalized with a life-threatening situation in India. After analyzing the condition, the emergency room staff said that there is zero chance of survival.
However, one healthcare professional was not convinced so he called one of his peers in the USA.
Miraculously, they came up with the ideal treatment plan which saved the life of Indranil’s father.
After that experience, Indranil and co-founders Abhishek Wadhwa and Amit Vithal wondered how real-time collaboration between healthcare professionals can save people's lives.
So, they started a healthcare networking app or an online networking platform for healthcare professionals in 2015 with the solid vision to help healthcare professionals in making better clinical decisions with effective and efficient collaboration.
And their dedication and solid mindset to transform care delivery approaches led them to seize the whopping $44M in recent series C funding.
The app allows healthcare professionals to connect with each other via a HIPAA-compliant one-to-one and group chat feature.
