KlinicApp is now enabling home tests for COVID-19 in Mumbai. It is also planning to roll it out in Pune and Delhi in a week.
KlinicApp is an e-diagnostic start-up that brings affordable, standardised lab test services to the doorstep of patients. In four years, KlinicApp has serviced about 200,000 patients and conducted more than 7.3 million tests. It has expanded its fleet of phlebotomists to 300.
Patients can simply call 8929176409 and book a test, but only after they produce a doctor’s prescription. Results are available within 48 hrs.
This service is being provided through tie-ups with government-approved labs like Thyrocare and Metropolis.
KlinicApp has deployed 100 phlebotomists on the ground for collecting samples in Mumbai. They are trained extensively as per ICMR guidelines and are equipped with disposable safety suits and other adequate gear.
“At KlinicApp, we are fully committed to the fight against COVID-19 and together help the nation come out of this difficult situation,” said Satkam Divya, CEO, KlinicApp.
“KlinicApp is focussed on adding/scaling up capacity in all major cities to a sufficient number of tests per day. Our fleet of Phlebotomists has been given extensive training for home sample collection and has been provided a one-time use safety suit (personal protective equipment) and gear for their safety,” he added.
KlinicApp competes with the likes of Practo, Mylab, Healthians, mFine, MedLife, and others in a fast-growing e-diagnostics sector.
