Sevamob: Transforming Healthcare through Innovation and Dedication

The healthcare sector in India has become one of the largest sectors both in terms of revenue and employment. The industry is growing at a tremendous pace due to its strengthening coverage, services and increasing expenditure by public as well private players. The healthcare market is expected to record a CAGR of 16.5 percent during 2008-20. The total industry size is expected to reach US $280 billion by 2020.
A company providing innovative healthcare solutions and services to the customers is Sevamob. It is an Atlanta based company which provides artificial intelligence enabled healthcare platform to organizations in India, South Africa and now in the US. The platform has 3 touch points:

The Insightful Leader of Sevamob
Sevamob marches ahead on its illustrious journey under the percipient leadership of Shelley Saxena, the Founder and CEO of the company. Prior to starting the company, he managed several multi-million dollar products for IBM and co-founded a profitable mobile technology company. He has an MBA from Cornell and B.E. from IIT Roorkee.
Shelley founded the company after his mom was incorrectly diagnosed and almost lost her life because of Hepatitis C. The realization that if this could happen in a Tier-2 city, the plight of patients in semi-urban and rural areas was even worse, led towards the inception of this company. He founded Sevamob in 2012 with the objective and vision of bringing primary healthcare to India’s rural poor.
Strategizing for Growth and Sustainability
The company believes that more preventive and primary care can reduce the need for critical care and the overall healthcare spending but technology alone is not the solution. An approach that integrates scalable service delivery with technology is needed to achieve health outcomes.
Their growth strategy includes increasing penetration in core areas like India and US through direct sales and reaching additional countries in Africa via resellers. Their revenue streams include: service delivery and tech licensing. The company aims to generate larger portion of the revenue through tech licensing going forward.
In their model, they depend on local partners (franchisees, resellers, anchor tenants) to replicate the model in new areas. Finding the right local partner is challenging and takes time and trial & error. To find such partners they leverage social impact networks and referrals where possible.
