What are the drivers/market trends that are shaping the Health Tech landscape in 2022?

Given the new healthcare challenges emerging since the outbreak of COVID-19, the healthcare industry has undergone the most profound shift with the most hopeful emerging technologies being adopted including robotic process automation (RPA) and cognitive automation (CA). Additionally, combining ML and AI with other technologies enables next-generation automation and augmentation of improved compliance, control, and capacity processes. The advent of wearable technology is another significant innovation in the healthcare industry. The readiness to digitally monitor a patient’s status throughout the day, or for a patient to monitor their own condition, has made things easier.

How is Glamyo tapping these market trends for growth?

Glamyo Health provide access to surgical treatments to our patients across India through highly qualified surgeons who are up to date on health-tech trends. From helping patients book an appointment with the best doctors, getting diagnostics, admission, discharge, free pick-up and drop service to taking care of all the insurance paperwork, is completely technology-centric. For instance, patients in a unified manner receive a mobile dashboard to track real-time details such as Uber cab arrival times, OT scheduled times, and follow-up reminders among other things.

How Startup creating opportunities for the Physicians and surgeons? 

Glamyo Health’s trained physicians and surgeons employ cutting-edge technology and advanced techniques to provide patients with treatment like no other. Glamyo Health has achieved a slew of specialisations in laparoscopy, proctology, urology, and cosmetic surgeries, and is now expanding into Dental Aligners and Ophthal. With the availability of an integrated synergy between the healthcare system and infrastructure, our surgeons are determined to transform the health care scenario in India from a traditional system that is overburdened with a backlog of surgeries.

What changes and recent developments in Glamyo?

We recently partnered with healwell24 to provide expert second medical opinions to patients throughout India. The primary service provided by this initiative is additional confirmation of diagnosis and consultation on the patient’s alternative treatment options. This online initiative has the potential to be a lifeline for patients dealing with complex medical conditions, as well as patients living in remote areas who have no choice but to travel to major cities for expert advice.

We also collaborated with Protribe to provide in-person and virtual care to senior citizens. This collaboration’s core offering is to create a healthier environment for seniors so that they receive adequate care, compassion, and respect with the assistance of a personal wellness coach and home care attendant. In addition, we teamed up with Milaap to provide surgical treatments to underserved communities earning less than ₹ 20,000 per month.

What are your brand Plans for raising funds?

We are currently in the middle of Series B funding, getting a lot of attraction from Private Equity Funds and Venture capitalists.

What is the take on the competitors?

In 2022, we have seen a lot of companies entering into the growing space. Total addressable market is big enough with nucleus accommodation to absorb all the competitors. Furthermore, bigger names are getting into the market.

In comparison to other market players, we specialise in minimally invasive elective surgeries that are patient-centred, convenient, fast, efficient, and affordable. Treatments for elective and cosmetic surgeries are available to patients with the click of a button and at the nearest Glamyo-affiliated hospitals, eliminating the need for patients to travel to metropolitan cities. Our value propositions include quality care available 24 hours a day, complete price transparency, no-cost financing options, and administrative support.

What has 2021 changed for you? How are things now?

At Glamyo Health, we took major steps to expand our capacity, particularly in Tier II and Tier III cities to provide a seamless experience to patients by fixing a dysfunctional healthcare system riddled with pain points such as pricing shock, lack of accountability, the backlog of surgeries, lack of quality treatment, administrative hassles during admission and discharge, and insurance-related activities. With consistent efforts and scaling 8x in the last 12 months has enabled Glamyo Health to become India’s fastest-growing secondary care Surgery provider.

What are your growth priorities for 2023?

Our target plan for next year is to facilitate 30k surgeries and counsel 600,000 patients across India. Over the next years, we are also motivated to mark our footprints in 60 plus cities, add more than 400 healthcare providers and 500 highly experienced surgeons/doctors to our platform and arrange 100 Mn USD in patient financing.
