Why did the co-founders decide to launch such an App? What are the key objectives that could be achieved through its launch?
I along with my two other co-founders wanted to start something of our own and were a part of different initiatives at our college. In the final year of 2012 during a midnight coffee break, the idea of starting something floated by and nobody ditched. We initially started working in healthcare sector with a medical tourism company. The business was lucrative and offered good margins just to bring in patients from overseas, but it thrived on a big inefficiency where doctors are not connected enough to each other. It was then that we dropped the idea, took jobs with MNCs and continued researching about the concept of medical networking in India.
Till May 2014, we met more than 1,000 doctors and the need was evident.
Key objectives of Curofy:
• Connectivity of doctors made easier.
• A discussion platform facilitating exchange of ideas, second opinion from senior and co doctors regarding their cases.
• Spam free customized news feed with the latest news update and healthcare techniques to look up to.
• Budding doctors are provided with a job portal.
Are there any checks and balances while selecting the doctors or that is not in the criteria? Are there any important guidelines that are required to be duly followed by doctors?
At Curofy we have an in-house process to verify each and every registration that we receive on the application. We have 100 percent verified and valid data on our platform.
