Pluss, the on-demand medicine and healthcare products delivery service has opened bookings for nearly 350 diagnostic tests through its Android and iOS app. The platform has tied up with labs like Labstreet in Delhi-NCR, Medyog in Bangalore and Doctor-C from Hyderabad and Bangalore. Subscribers can take their pick from an extensive list of tests at discounts worth flat 15% and upto 30%.
How it works
To book a lab test, patients must visit the Pluss App and go to the lab tests section and select the preferred test they want to undergo. Once selected, they can go to the cart and choose the particular lab from where they can do their prescribed test.
Patients will have to fill their personal and booking details to confirm the order. Once they receive a confirmation call from Pluss’ service partner for pre-test instructions, Phlebotomists will be at their doorstep for the sample collection free of cost and then get it processed at the chosen lab.
Finally, the reports will be sent to the patient via their email ids. Bookings can be done on the app as well as on the website: https://www.plussapp.com/
Atit Jain, the CEO of Pluss commented,
“Through this online diagnostic test service, we aim to make it convenient for people to book lab tests and get them done on time in the comfort of their homes. Currently, we have partnered with just three laboratories, but eventually, we will join hands with more test labs to reach out to a wider base of subscribers.”
Boasting of an impressive list of investors that include Snapdeal’s co-founders Rohit Bansal & Kunal Bahl, Indian Dream Capital and Rajesh Sawhney of GSF, Narendra Singh Rawat, TA Venture Holding Limited, Roshan Abbas, and Anand Chandrasekaran, Pluss aims to expand to more than five cities by the end of 2015. Also, they will soon be adding Medical Tests and Surgical Equipment in their product categories. In the long run, the company envisions being the biggest and India’s no. 1 in the healthcare sector with medicine delivery as a part of the wide range of services they are set to offer.
The Pluss Story
Based out of Delhi, Pluss was incorporated in 2015 by Atit Jain, Madhulika Pandey and Tarun Lawadia after witnessing the country’s largely unorganized health care industry. In a country where everything is delivered at the doorstep, the trio devised a quick and handy method for ordering medicines in three steps: ‘Clicking a photo of the prescription’, ‘Selecting individual medicines to be ordered’ and ‘Placing the order’.
Pluss eases the ordering and the speed of delivery of medicines by partnering with many licensed pharmacies providing the medicines as and when ordered. The revenue is generated by charging its partner pharmacies a percentage of every order they get through the app. Bearing in mind that medicines belong to the immediate requirement category, Pluss delivers the medicines within 1 day with the help of its own fleet of 50 delivery workers called ‘Pluss Men’.
The Pluss app offers cash on delivery services and card on delivery services that can be availed of on prior notice. Currently covering Delhi-NCR, Hyderabad and Bangalore, Pluss further adding Medical Tests and Surgical Equipment to its product categories. With the health products market expected to grow at a CAGR of 15% and touch $158.2 Billion in 2017, Pluss has placed a bet on hyperlocal delivery, envisioning emerging as India’s reigning name in the healthcare sector.
