FindMyHealth - Startup that Combines AI and Ayurveda for Health Monitoring

Artificial Intelligence is now penetrating almost every existing domain. Finance, healthcare, education, transportation and many sectors are witnessing active use of AI. The idea of this startup was born when Gaurav Bhalotia realised there is a lot to health beyond medicine, and that our bodies need to participate very strongly to recover from any illness. Gaurav thus started FindMyHealth in 2018 with a vision to give individuals control of their health, and to help them stay healthy and recover quickly.

However, the seeds of the current product was sowed in April 2019 after the successful Proof of Concept (POC) of its computer vision technology. The platform allows users to get a peek into their inner health based on an Ayurvedic framework. It starts by analysing the face to identify the body constitution and visual aging or obesity, which is followed by a conversation with its AI doctor to identify the state of the inner health.

About FindMyHealth and How it Works?

The inspiration behind this idea is Gaurav’s health experiences (self and family) where he moved from being a skeptic towards alternative medicine to becoming a believer in the body’s power and participation in recovery. There is a lot of subjectivity in both discovery and assessment in the alternative medicine space today.

The journey started with an attempt to use technology to bring the power of Ayurveda and alternative medicine to more people. The biggest gap which Gaurav saw to start with was helping people identify what herbs to take, many people were consuming Ayurvedic herbs but most of it through ad-hoc recommendations from friends and family.

Over the last one year we have managed to use the knowledge from Ayurveda to build a framework for remote assessment, AI-driven recommendations, and doorstep delivery of Herbal Supplements, says Gaurav Bhalotia, founder of FindMyHealth.

FindMyHealth - Target Market

The healthcare market in India is expected to reach US$ 372 billion by 2022, driven by rising incomes, greater healthcare awareness, lifestyle diseases, and increasing access to insurance. We are combining AI and Ayurveda to build these solutions. Ayurveda market in India is expected to be around $9 billion by 2022.

There will be 130 million Health Conscious Individuals (HCIs) by 2022. Increasingly people will seek out more control over their health, as is showing up in fitness products today. There will be a demand for solutions that connect our everyday actions to health outcomes. E.g. what we eat, our lifestyles, etc. So essentially coupled with awareness, we will see greater participation in staying healthier.

The team felt that the biggest problem that people have in healthcare is a lack of control. Health is so much of a personal thing. One has to be aware of one’s body and health work daily to maintain it. The company wanted to build something that gives people control of their health and helps them identify, interpret, and work with their inner balance. Hence the name FindMyHealth (help find where the balance is and then help find a fix)

FindMyHealth - Business Model and Revenue Model

FindMyHealth works on a freemium model, the assessment is free (so is the identification of the right herbs). They intend to monetize the personalized supplement that is custom-built for the user. They will also have personalized diet plans very soon. Right now, the company has two paid offerings on the website - personalized Ayurvedic herb mix for Rs 999 and therapeutic (disease reversal diet plans) for Rs. 6,999.

FindMyHealth - User Acquisition and Growth

What has worked for FindMyHealth is the selfie analysis, people find it unique and it enables high click-through rates and reasonable acquisition costs. While the selfie brings users, their deep insights into inner health help keep them. According to the company, more than 60% of the users are going through completing the entire assessment, sometimes spending up to 10 minutes on it, which is a lot in terms of internet time.

The company has tied up with Hyderabad based Healtheeliving to provide them the technology platform for their therapeutic nutrition plans. One of the campaigns that went almost viral is their Corona Risk Calculator. They started seeing a lot of people share it on Facebook and WhatsApp and a significant proportion of traffic coming through these shares.

FindMyHealth - Startup Challenges

The biggest challenge has been the marriage of technology and medicine, to get Ayurvedic doctors and nutrition experts and engineers/data scientists to think and work on a common plane. FindMyHealth has built a very strong culture of data-based science, high ownership, and building for scale.

The next challenge has been creating awareness and sometimes a strong positive awareness of Ayurveda. A lot of people are exposed to Ayurvedic medicines and treatments but in a very ad-hoc manner, the startup wishes to make it easy and accurate to access and consume Ayurveda.

FindMyHealth - Competitors

There are other players in the space like 1balance delivering personalized supplements, and Jiva Ayurveda, Dr. Vaidya’s, Cureveda, Organic India, etc., trying to create a new-age brand for Ayurvedic supplements. On assessments, there are players like NadiTarangini and Ayurythm building technologies for Ayurvedic assessments of Individuals.

Personalization is the distinctive benefit of their AI, enabling them to identify the unique health situation of an individual and connect them to appropriate targeted actions drawn from the wisdom of Ayurveda and other natural techniques. An additional strong aspect of the company's technology is that it can be done in a non-invasive manner and remotely on the app.

FindMyHealth strongly admires CureFit which has been able to create an aspirational brand around health and fitness. They would like to similarly create a great brand that will help individuals take control of their inner health and use the platform for regular assessment, recommendations, and supplement needs.
