3Hcare - How was 3Hcare Started?

Ruchi had never planned to become an entrepreneur. She pursued her MBA along with CA and is also a Ph.D. scholar. Inherited the interest in teaching from her parents, she also wanted to become a lecturer. In pursuit of her dreams, she became a mentor to management students and worked as a lecturer in a college in Delhi for many years.

She noticed many complications that the common public faces while getting a diagnosis in hospitals and other test centers, one incident that especially left her wanting to make a difference was the difficulty faced by a relative in finding a good hospital and diagnostic services during the time of emergency.

Ruchi’s relative was suffering from dengue and needed immediate admission, wherein the hospitals denied admitting him due to overcrowded. She was not in a position to wander around to different hospitals in search of bed availability. But giving reference to a known doctor, the patient was immediately admitted. The problems did not end, soon the admin staff asked her to get the patient tested for platelets, due to lack of facilities during that time. This was another challenge for her to track and locate a diagnostic lab that can provide the test results immediately for further treatment. In the end, only her reference helped the patient with regular tests and treatment. This incident came as a wake-up call for Ruchi and the idea of starting 3Hcare was formed.

However, to practically execute the idea, she still had many hurdles to cross. She wanted to create an online portal by tying up with various labs to make all the tests available to the patients with ease and transparency. To develop a team, she actually shared the idea with more than 300 people and at last, found 4 reliable sources who were convinced with her idea – Dr. Gurdeep Singh Ratra, Mr. Ankush Mehra, Mr. Sumit Gupta and Dr. Ravinder Pal Singh. And finally, with the initiative of the co-founders, 3Hcare was started in September 2016.

The 3H stands for – Help, Health, and Happiness.

Our aim is to help the common masses to bridge the gap between healthcare services and patients .

3Hcare - Revenue Model

3Hcare’s revenue model is simple. As its services are free for the patients, it charges only support fees from centers and hospitals.

3Hcare - Funding and Investors

3Hcare has raised a total of $1.1 Million in 2 rounds of funding. Its funding details are as follows:

Funding Date Funding Stage Funding Amount Investors
September 2017 Angel round $100K Angel Investors
August 2018 Venture round $1 Million -

3Hcare received an angel funding of  $100K, just within 11 months of its inception. The funds were used to develop the IT infrastructure and enhance the other verticals. Recently 3Hcare also raised a second round of funding of $1 million.

3Hcare - User Acquisition

For 3Hcare, the main focus was to provide the best of services to the public. Word of mouth publicity is something that the healthcare startup focused on acquiring new users. Price transparency and discounted prices/offers have also attracted new customers.

Further, to add to the CSR activities, and spread awareness about the importance of timely diagnosis, the team organizes regular free health checkup camps at various locations like rural areas, slums and villages across India.

The main focus was to deliver the best services to the public. If the services are provided with the best class quality, the word of mouth power by the patients/persons seeking the services are the best reference publicity.

3Hcare - Startup Challenges

In the initial months when the website was under construction, it was a huge challenge for the 3Hcare team to convince tying up with diagnostic centers. Still, they managed to bring around 180 centers. Today the portal is ready with over 1000 test centers (PAN India) to choose from with further verticals yet to be added.

According to Ruchi, apart from developing a reliable team, the other major challenge was to self-check for quality labs before getting associated with them. The task was tedious to completely check each and every lab initially for quality, report accuracy and accreditation.

While the further expansion of 3Hcare’s other vertical – Plan My Surgery, rendering comparative quotes, providing real-time data of bed and doctors availability was initially a challenge.

With the progression of data management in our cloud, synchronization helped to overcome the herculean task. Our main aim was to develop the IT infrastructure and strengthen it with the application of artificial intelligence and machine learning.
