Glamyo Health, a full-stack healthcare service provider, with 300+ partner hospitals
Glamyo Health, vision to make this venture as India’s no.1 healthcare company
September 19: Glamyo health was founded by Archit Garg and Dr Preet Pal Thakur in 2019, headquartered in Delhi. It’s a multi-speciality healthcare provider delivering all elective surgeries & cosmetic procedures with personalized care. They believe that their company is like an OYO for the healthcare network. Within one year, they have reached and worked with at least 500+ hospitals and 26000+ pin codes.
Ten years of knowing each other and the same work experience as medical experts and healthcare venture capitalists lead them to Glamyo Health. With a vision to make this venture as India’s no.1 healthcare company. Mr Archit Garg shared, “After in-depth analysis, we discovered the disparity in services available to the patient across different regions. Which fueled our vision of establishing healthcare centre to provide a seamless experience to patients by fixing a dysfunctional healthcare system riddled with pain points such as pricing shock, lack of accountability, backlog of surgeries, lack of quality treatment, administrative hassles during admission and discharge, and insurance-related activities”. “Glamyo was subsequently launched in February 2020 to empower the patients and impact the lives of millions of underprivileged people in pain and discomfort by delivering advanced technology, best healthcare facilities and skilled practitioners available to all”, He added.
With 300+ partner hospitals, Glamyo Health is a full-stack healthcare service provider, enabling patients a hassle-free experience from admission to discharge. Talking about the major issues faced by the patients, Archit said, “Glamyo Health strived to address three major issues which differentiate it from other health networks. Patients face these issues daily, which helped us establish a brand in the elective surgical market. The foremost is a lack of information, which leads most patients to believe that only top brands are available options. Glamyo offers an online platform that enlightens patients about the best hospitals in their area for their required treatments and procedures. The second issue is accessibility. When a patient is hospitalized, they are usually bothered by several insignificant procedures. To provide patients with seamless service, Glamyo assigns relationship managers to act as a liaison between the patient and the doctor. The surgery is performed by a highly qualified and experienced Glamyo surgeon at one of the Glamyo partners – a chain of over 300 co-branded hospitals with over 200+ surgeons spread across 16 cities at the moment. Financing is the third gap we are trying to resolve in the surgical market. Glamyo collaborates with financing stakeholders like insurance aggregators / EMI partners to arrange single window clearance for patients for their healthcare financing needs”.Further, Mr Archit tells Hello Entrepreneurs, “At GlamyoHealth, we have ambitious plans for the future. We aim to touch 1 million lives in the next 12 months. Over the next two years, we are motivated and keen to mark our footprints in 45 plus cities, add more than 500 healthcare providers and 400+ highly experienced surgeons/doctors to our platform and arrange 100 Mn USD in patient financing”.
Glamyo leverages sophisticated technology to offer patients transparent, unbiased information and assistance throughout their surgical journey. In addition, Glamyo’s in-house insurance team employs cutting-edge technology to make insurance use as simple as possible. Patients receive a mobile dashboard to track real-time details such as Uber cab arrival times, OT scheduled times, and follow-up reminders, among other things.
Advising the aspiring entrepreneurs, he said, “Launching a healthcare startup is look like a simple task with high chances of success. In practice, however, the medical industry is one of the most difficult to enter. Compliance and regulations, high safety standards, competition, and the complexity of healthcare relationships make business expansion difficult for most brands desiring to offer new products. To succeed as an entrepreneur in a health care network, one must research the market, understand the target audience, and fully comprehend how to provide quality service in the situations like COVID-19. At the same time, an industry as conservative as healthcare is wary of young startups. So, cultivating relationships with larger hospital chains, insurance companies, and health-tech firms is the key”.
