Who We Are
Medicus App is the brainchild of Mr. Manav Shah and Mr. Bhavesh Shah which came into existence in November 2016.
According to the reports 27% of deaths in India happen due to lack of medical attention. According to us, lack of communication and reachability is the cause of our healthcare sector
In rural areas, Pharma companies find it too costly to reach doctors. As a result of which there are no supply of medicine in these region.
As a result of this patients suffer. They do not get proper medication. Such was the case in Abu region of Gujarat where one of the family member of a patient had to travel 100+ kms to get the medicine from Pharma company which was prescribed by the doctor. That was the day when idea of the Medicus came to our founders.
After researching on the issues and talking to thousands of doctors, a list of issues were made. We tried to get to the root cause of those issues. We found that there was no platform where all the stakeholders of healthcare industry can come together to discuss such issues and communicate with each other. Doctors could not talk about the medicine and give its feedback to the pharma companies directly, they also had no one who would listen to the problems they were facing with the cases.
That is when we thought to come up with a platform where all the stakeholders of healthcare industries, be it Doctor, Pharma Companies, NGOs, Doctor Association or Government bodies can come together to discuss the cases and help each other.
Since then, we are making ourselves better with each passing second. With the constant support of hardworking and self-motivated employees and supportive doctor’s fraternity we have come this far.
We aspire to be India’s top healthcare services providing app. With this pace it is not far when we will achieve our dream to make India healthy because it is the right of every human being who is born, to get the proper medication and live healthy.
The first among many equals who bring with them a strong track
record of entrepreneurship and innovation
