Committed to change healthcare sector with technology, 4 friends across the globe start Zywie in India
Passion for the startup scene brought together four friends in three different cities of the world to form Zywie Technologies -- an end to end healthcare solution. Steve Khod in New York, Anuj Dasgupta in Paris, Shailendra Mathur and Zohaib Tanwir in Pune are friends who share many interests, two of which are strikingly common -- love for technology and the thirst to do something out of the ordinary.
It took one awesome idea for them to get convinced enough to quit their secure IT jobs and take a plunge in the startup scene. Formed in 2014, Zywie Technologies is aimed at creating a new healthcare ecosystem that will benefit hospitals, doctors, pharmacists, patients and their families alike.
Some of the interesting features scheduled for Zywie’s debut release include:
- Allowing receptionists to schedule and manage appointments for multiple doctors
- Enabling patients to get automated reminders for appointments and for medications
- Digitizing patients’ health records and allowing doctors to view past health records of patients, so as to provide more informed and holistic treatment
- Facilitating labs to upload test reports on Zywie, so that they can be viewed by patients as well as physicians
However, keeping in mind the rapid advancement in the Internet of Things they plan to explore intersection of IT and healthcare in a revolutionary way. The standard technologies that are currently available in the market do not take into account the possibility of inter-device communication. It won’t be too long before Zywie affiliated hospitals will be equipped to handle critical cases with minimal manual intervention.
Steve, who manages sales, adds, “After two years in a family run diamond business, I felt like it was time to move on and find a new project, a new passion. My interest in Zywie flourished as soon as the idea was introduced to me by Anuj. Having IT background in a large scale enterprise applications I felt inspired to join this venture and make a personal contribution.”
With a vision that entails creating a healthcare platform that reduces manual labor through smart use of technology, the startup allows healthcare providers to move away from repetitive tasks, and brings a high degree of consistency to healthcare standards at an affordable cost. Zywie is destined to be an agent of change for the healthcare industry.
