Senu Sam got the idea to develop Mykare when his father was hospitalised to a small hospital in his native town for surgery, and he flew down to coordinate the entire process. When he put himself in the shoes of an ordinary patient, he saw the entire process develop from a different angle. This made him question how his father was one of numerous people around the country who were waiting in the hospital with no idea what they were going through. This is when he realised there was a need for an end-to-end technical platform experience with tailored and standardised treatment for patients seeking low-cost surgical care.
