Bollywood singer Sukhbir, others invest ₹71 lakhs in doctor-patient engagement app MEngage

Alteria Capital invests $5.7 million as debt financing in housing startup Stanza Living

Bollywood singer Sukhbir Singh, including other angel investors, have infused $100,000 (approx ₹71 lakhs) in MEngage, a platform that builds customised engagement apps for doctors through an extended seed round. While, Keshav Sharma, CEO, Metacube; Nikhil Chaudhary and Dipesh Singhal, Founders, Buren, also participated in the funding round. The funds raised by MEngage, will be utilised for the rest of the pieces of Smart Pharmacy and Smart Labs automation, cited Yourstory.

MEngage said that Startup Buddy’s CEO Amit Singhal introduced MEngage to Sukhbir over a lunch meeting in Delhi. In matter of minutes, Sukhbir made up his mind to invest in MEngage, it added.

Sukhbir Singh said that all hospitals and doctors need to automate OPD to the highest level and give maximum convenience to patients. “I am excited to become part of MEngage journey as I believe the solution is solving a real problem and saving lots of time of patients,” he added.

MEngage was founded by Manmohan Yadav and Sanjay Yadav in 2016. The platform was hived off in August 2017. It works as an enterprise OPD solution for patients and doctors.

“With enterprise OPD end-to-end processes, we plan to become a sort of OYO for clinics and manage the entire processes for them,” says Manmohan Yadav, CEO, MEngage.

“This will help doctors increase focus on their practice without getting involved in administrative and mundane tasks,” he added.

The startup MEngage said it is a combination of Smart OPD + Smart Prescription + Smart Pharmacy + Smart Lab + Smart Patient Engagement. The firm claims that it already completed Smart OPD and Smart Prescriptions.

The startup claims that it has on-boarded 350 doctors, out of which 250 doctors/clinics are now paid. It also claims to be having one of the highest ratio of patient visits to the number of on-boarded doctors/clinics.

“We have perhaps the best traction per unit money spent in this industry. This is one of the key differentiator, and reflects savvy product market fit,” said Sanjay Yadav, Chief Planning Officer, MEngage.
