The story so far
One of the most prevalent problems that people in India are facing in healthcare services is the lack of access to it. Though this is not seen much in in urban areas, driving towards the outskirts of most metro cities, it will be hard to find any significant medical help at hand.
Even today, people living in villages do not have access to specialized doctors due to which they have to travel a great distance to access even the most basic health requirements. Furthermore, doctors too were trying their best to manage life and work, ensuring that they could give as much time to their patients as well. However, the number of patients visiting clinics is inconsistent, thus leaving them with ample amount of time and less productive work.
Bearing witness to this persistent point at issue, Guruswamy Ramamoorthy, hailing from a village named Mannargudi in Tamil Nadu, felt the need of a solution to the the difficulties that the people in India were facing in relation to getting medical help. Armed with a total experience of 27 years in the field of Marketing in sectors like mutual funds, insurance, and especially healthcare technology, Ramamoorthy came up with the idea of the mobile app, Doxtro, as an answer to the problem.
This move by Ramamoorthy was a smart one, as mobile penetration has been increasing tremendously in rural areas and also the need of specialized doctors at rural parts. India’s mobile user base touches 103.5 crores. And the mobile subscription base is rapidly increasing in rural areas which was the opportunity for Ramamoorthy to penetrate in rural market as well.
