Healthwire a Pakistani startup Raises whooping investment from 47 Venture, its really big!!! Healthwire, a health-tech startup focused on aggregating all stakeholders of the healthcare ecosystem on its platform and providing a seamless digital healthcare experience to patients, has raised $700,000 from 47 Venture Investments.
The startup had originally started as a doctor booking platform in 2015 but Hamza Iqbal, its founder, and CEO, quickly realized that hospitals and doctors in Pakistan were not ready to use it.
He then immediately pivoted to sell it as a cloud-based hospital and practice management software.
Healthwire has deployed its Practice and Hospital Management software at 1200 locations across 45 cities of the country where 3500 doctors have been using its services making it the most widely deployed eHealth platform on the supply side of the healthcare ecosystem.
The company’s business model is based on connecting doctors with patients from the remotest areas of Pakistan, digitizing all health records, and eventually making healthcare affordable for the masses.
With the recently launched applications, Healthwire has now enabled patients to book appointments online with thousands of doctors.
“We have been fixated in solving the fundamental problem of unavailability of patient health information digitally. Our focus on solving this basic problem has now facilitated us to aggregate all stakeholders in the healthcare ecosystem”
said Hamza Iqbal, Founder/CEO of Healthwire.
“We have now enabled patients to access their health records and book appointments with these doctors, we are working on the side to bring laboratories and pharmacies on our platform to give patients a seamless experience throughout their healthcare journey”
