New Delhi [India], Feb 6 (ANI): healthi, a digital preventive health startup on Tuesday announced raising funding to the tune of USD 3.1 million to accelerate business growth and development of applications aimed at making preventive and family health management convenient, insightful, and effective.

healthi has developed scientifically validated and patent-pending prediction models and personalisation algorithms that empower users to easily understand their state of health and nudge them towards seeking appropriate help and making suitable lifestyle changes.

"This funding round, led by a seasoned investor like Montane Ventures, gives us the confidence and resources to power forward in our mission to empower millions of users to live fuller lives by taking control of their health. The feedback and increasing traction that we have seen to date reinforces our vision that a strong focus on user experience and the right combination of technology and analytics can effectively help users to lead healthy lives," said healthi's founders Rekuram Varadharaj and Krishna Ulagaratchagan.

The funds will be used to boot up applications that empower users to understand, engage with and take control of their health and to scale up the go-to-market efforts for the first application that is seeing increasing traction, namely driving engaging health benefits programs for corporate employees and family members.

With this support coming its way, healthi is on track to sign about 1.4 million users in 2018. In addition to growing its user base in India, healthi has also attracted keen interest from providers in the ASEAN and EMEA regions for its analytics and engagement platform.

The organisation aims to roll out international pilots to this end in the next 12 to 18 months. (ANI)
