“Our vision is to bring change in the way healthcare is delivered in the country by building tools for Healthcare Providers and patients. At Eka.Care, we believe that a medically aware deep-tech platform for health care engagement can lead to better health outcomes. I am grateful to our investors who have chosen to support us in this mission,” Vikalp added.

Commenting on the investment, Deepak Tuli, Co-founder & COO, Eka.Care said, “The way health care is being delivered in the country is going through a change. Both healthcare providers and patients need technology support to adapt to the change. We are building solutions to adapt to their changing needs.”

In India, we are not used to storing health records digitally which results in unnecessary repeat tests and patients end up paying the higher cost for their treatment. We are on a mission to introduce behavior change of recording health records in a digital vault of Eka.Care for the betterment of every patient,” Tuli added.
