Online doctor consultation platform DocsApp acqui-hires DocWise for an undisclosed amount

Symbo acquires B2B reinsurance platform ReLeague

DocsApp, an online doctor consultation platform has taken over another similar category startup DocWise for an undisclosed amount. Both of them are based out of Bengaluru.

After the acquisition, DocWise will add to DocsApp’s growing doctor network and enrich its engagement with the community.

Further, DocWise co-founders Rahul Gupta and Samar Ahmed will head the consumer business and doctor ecosystem respectively.

Gupta said, “Together we share a vision to make quality healthcare accessible to billions. The decision to combine forces with DocsApp will allow us to strengthen our position in the digital healthcare segment.”

DocsApp was founded by Satish Kannan and Enbasekar Dinadayalane in 2015. The platform offers an AI-focussed platform to connect with more than 5000 specialist doctors for consultations over video calls, voice call and an in-built chat application.

It provides consultation across 15 specialties including dermatology, gynaecology, sexology, paediatrics, psychiatry, general medicine and weight management among others. The platform also allows the user to order medicines and book diagnostic tests online.

DocWise, on the other hand, was founded by Rahul Gupta and Samar Ahmed in 2015. It helps doctors optimise their post-consultation patient engagement such as managing follow-ups and manage avoidable patient clinic visits.

The platform claims to have a network of 1000 doctors and has completed more than one lakh consultations.

Kannan said, “We live in a tech-centric world, and patients expect access to quality healthcare at the touch of a button. DocWise has not only enabled doctors to streamline the queues at their clinic, but also helped bridge the doctor-patient communication gap.”

Besides DocsApp and DocWise, other platforms under the similar sky include Practo, Opencare, Zoylo, DabaDoc, DoctorsTime among others.
