LabForSure is revolutionizing the diagnostics industry by creating a technology-driven healthcare network to connect laboratories, phlebotomists and patients. LabForSure leverages its technology platform, on-time delivery approach and networked pre-analytic centres (PAC) to book test requisition, appointment schedule, manage sample collection, pre-analytics, shipping to lab and getting the report. This in turn results in comfortable, convenient, credible and cost effective blood sample collection which saves time and reduces errors.
"Diagnostics has witnessed innovations in analytics but no major breakthroughs are made in pre-analytical phase, while 70% of errors take place in pre-analytic phase," said Dr. Yogesh Sharma, LabForSure's CEO and Co-founder. Pre-analytics is the process by which blood is collected from the patient and sent to the lab. Spectrum of errors is broad varying from mere forgetfulness to more stringent sample processing and violation of temperature requirement.
Started in mid 2015, LabForSure is now operating in 12 cities, including Delhi or NCR, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Pune Chennai, Chandigarh and Gurgaon, where the company is headquartered. The company has signed up with over 400 paramedical institutes to bring phlebotomists onto the platform.
LabForSure is drawing over 1000 blood samples per day across 12 cities in India. They have tied up with 50+ NABL accredited labs for testing which include almost all major national and regional labs across the cities where they are operational. LabForSure partners with health service providers like online healthcare majors like 1MG, Practo, Lybrate, Medlife, major hospitals, clinic chains, wellness centres, pharmacies and so on.
"LabForSure has more than 95% of appointment compliance rate since its launch. Our tech platform enables us to improve patient compliance and outcomes by making sure blood draws appointment actually occur," said Pankaj Mittal, CTO and Co-founder.
The opportunity is huge, every day more than 1 million blood draws are performed in India which means more than 10 patients giving their blood sample every second. And the industry is growing at CAGR of 18-19% attributing to increased requirement of tests due to population growth and ageing, awareness towards wellness and growing evidence based medicine practice.
