Despite the scepticism, we worked persistently to realise our vision of delivering free and credible medical information to consumers in the country," said CEO and founder Credihealth, Ravi Virmani.

"The fact that we have served more than six lakh customers in the past four years and expanded to 14 cities is a great validation of our product and practices," he added.

It assists patients throughout their medical journey, providing the best tech-enabled solutions, from searching for the right doctor to scheduling appointments, diagnostics, surgeries and post-op care, all for free.

With the largest hospital network in India, the first-of-its-kind digital platform's ground-breaking system allows users to compare and select from a comprehensive database of hospitals, doctors, and treatments. The platform also has its own team of in-house doctors providing online consultation to users through both the web and mobile applications.

Credihealth has also expanded into the medical tourism sector, providing complete assistance for medical treatment in India. Its team of medical experts supports international patients starting from airport pick-up till they are discharged from the hospital.
