How have your personal experiences and insights shaped the direction of MedRabbits, and what lessons have you learned along the way that continue to guide your leadership?
MedRabbits originated from a vision to fulfill the growing need for more structured home healthcare options, create better job prospects within the healthcare industry, and bring greater transparency to the market. This vision was deeply rooted in the personal experiences of the founders, particularly during the illness of Amol’s father in 2017. The challenges faced firsthand in providing care and the immense struggle encountered while seeking skilled and dependable healthcare professionals for home care highlighted a significant gap in the delivery of care services. Hence, MedRabbits was conceptualised to bridge these gaps. By offering organised, technology-driven healthcare services, MedRabbits strives to revolutionize the accessibility and delivery of healthcare.
A crucial lesson learned in the past year pertains to the significance of team building and organisation for new projects, emphasizing the importance of establishing Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for these endeavors.
