Expedient Healthcare Marketing Pvt. Ltd, which runs online diagnostics and wellness startup Healthians.com has recently launched its services in Lucknow and Kanpur.
Headquartered in Gurugram and backed with an experience of serving over 5,00,000 families in Delhi NCR in last 2 years, the company is now spreading its reach to Tier 2 cities, starting its journey from Lucknow and Kanpur.
Commenting on the development Ashish Mishra, Marketing Head of Healthians said, “Our aim is to provide the highest quality of diagnostic services to every Indian at half the price. And in this endeavour, we will be multiplying our workforce in Kanpur & Lucknow by employing 150 phlebotomists within 6 months.”
Founded in 2014 by Deepak Sahni, Healthians helps users discover affordable healthcare by aggregating diagnostic labs, crowd-sourced sample collectors and nearby doctors. It also makes patients’ medical records available online.
Armed with the highest number of trained and highly skilled staff who specialise in collecting home samples, Healthians today offers a wide range of pathology tests from certified high-quality labs and a bundle of additional services. Apart from offering free home sample collection, the company also commits to deliver the soft copy of reports the same day. Each customer is entitled to a free Doctor and Nutritionist consultation to understand their reports better.
The start-up has got its vote of confidence from none other than iconic cricketer Yuvraj Singh, who is not only an investor but the brand ambassador of Healthians as well. It is a well-backed company that has raised multiple rounds of funding from various investors.
Healthians has an extensive growth plan to expand to the other major cities including Mumbai, Bengaluru, and create a marked presence in North & West India and other identified Tier II cities by end of the current financial year.
The company aims to add over 200 labs and over 3,000 phlebotomists across 30 cities by the end of 2019. We would like to increase our base to 3 million customers in next 12 months and would be doing over 3,00,000 booking every month by end of next financial year.
Working on a business to customer model, the company claims to have cut all middleman expenses and high franchise cost. This cost advantage is readily passed on to customers. The company aims to multiply their workforce exponentially in both the cities in next 6 months, adding employment opportunities for healthcare technicians and sample collectors.
