PlanMyMedicalTrip.com, which offers international patients access to medical care at competitive prices, has received about $189,000 in funding from its founder and three angel investors including Bhanu Vikram Parsotam, Rohan Desai and Paras Patel, according to a statement.
The fresh funds will be used by the startup to increase its network across the world and improve customer’s digital experience. This apart, the portal also plans to expand its reach to countries that are rich with prospects for medical tourism such as Thailand, UAE, Brazil and Germany.
“Even though our team strictly adheres to the company’s growth strategy to achieve its goals, this funding will help us serve our customers even better. It will also assist us in keeping our energies focused on our philosophy of humanity is the only religion,” said Anurav Rane, founder and CEO of PlanMyMedicalTrip.com.
PlanMyMedicalTrip.com makes it simple for a patient looking for specialised treatments to choose a hospital and doctor who best understands his/her needs. Because the international patient departments at many hospitals aren’t well equipped to handle patients from abroad, the portal becomes a one-stop destination for patients to compare doctors and hospitals, read reviews, receive end-to-end guidance on the treatment, travel and stay.
“I have been a part of the healthcare sector in the USA for close to two decades now. So, I am familiar with patient requirements here and strongly believe that PlanMyMedicalTrip.com is doing the right thing at the right time. Together with the PlanMyMedicalTrip.com representatives, I’m positive that we will be able to boost healthcare facilities across the globe,” Parsotam said.
Parsotam has been involved with Pensacola Home Health Care for 20 years and has previously also funded hotels and motels in the USA, while Desai has 10 years of experience in stock trading and investment and provides stock advisory services at rdviews.com. Patel is a real estate investor.
