pinkWhale Healthcare Services, announced that residents in select metros can now avail diagnostic services like getting blood and urine tests done, from the convenience of their homes.
On the occasion Anita Shet, CEO, pinkWhale Healthcare Services said, “With constraints on our time, many of us keep putting off a blood test or health check till it becomes critical. The elderly also face the challenge of visiting the clinic often as they need tests done frequently. Children get put off by the atmosphere at the clinic/ hospital and create a scene for a simple blood collection procedure. There is clearly a great need to provide these services in a more convenient manner. pinkWhale Healthcare Services now provides these services right at your desktop.”
Internet users can visit the pinkWhale website, select the relevant test and order online. This is followed by a call from a representative to coordinate a date and time for the collection of the blood or urine sample. Later the test reports are delivered at the individual’s doorstep within a couple of days.
The value add for using pinkWhale online diagnostic services is that, these are reasonably priced. In fact most of the tests ordered online cost less than the tests at a clinic or hospital. If one takes into account the time and effort taken to visit the clinic plus fuel costs, the value proposition is significant. For example, a Lipid Profile costs about 600 to 900 Rupees in a well equipped clinic. The same test is available for Rs 300 on the pinkWhale website.
Apart from tests, standard blood / kidney / liver profiles and complete health checks for various age groups and risk factors are also available. The company also provides the option of consulting with a doctor, on the phone or on online chat to discuss the test results and any other concerns related to health and wellness.

By taking advantage of technological developments in field of communication, pinkWhale aims to provide convenience in preventive healthcare at an affordable price.
