Lybrate receives recognition by Fast Company as one of the 10 Most Innovative Company in Healthcare for 2016, in its annual ranking of Most Innovative Companies.
“We are very honored at being recognised as the 10 Most Innovative Companies world over. It is a validation of our efforts of fixing the real problem of Indian healthcare that is inaccessibility of healthcare in the country, which has long been a serious issue. We are single-mindedly focusing on solving this core problem with the innovative use of technology and enabling doctors and patients to communicate with each other online from anywhere, anytime. We are delighted to share the recognition with our users who guide us to innovate more and make the product more seamless and convenient to use,” said Saurabh Arora, CEO, Lybrate.
The healthcare startup provides a solution to cater the problem of inaccessibility of doctors. Doctor crunch is a massive problem in India and so reaching out to them for an opinion on health-related ailments is a herculean task for many in the country.
Since the launch of the Lybrate app in January 2015, the company has seen a massive growth with more than 90,000 doctors from across specialties currently associated with it. With more than 2 million downloads since launch and over 500,000 users visiting the platform every day, Lybrate’s popularity has been soaring rapidly in the country. Recognising its popularity and potential, Apple recently featured Lybrate on its coveted list of ‘The App Store Best of 2015’ that covers most innovative apps and games. In addition to this, Forbes India featured Lybrate’s co-founder Rahul Narang in its 30 under 30, 2016 list.
