BANGALORE, November 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

The Company Leverages its Strong Network of

Healthcare Providers and Trusted Doctors to Create an Online Platform for Cashless Access to Outpatient Services

The Bengaluru-based managed healthcare organization, the Medi Assist Group, has launched MediBuddy Infiniti,

India's first truly integrated online platform for discovery, scheduling and cashless access to outpatient services. Infiniti brings together the might of 10,000+ trusted hospitals, diagnostics centres, medical clinics and authorized pharmacy partners in the Medi Assist Network to provide a one-stop online platform to deliver curated outpatient services in a cashless format.

For an organization that has already delivered over 6 lakh health checks and doctor consults in the financial year 2015-16, Infiniti aims to further transform the outpatient care and wellness segment. With Infiniti, Medi Assist members will be able to access outpatient services of their choice, with their preferred doctor, at their preferred network provider, and at preferential pricing on one comprehensive online platform.

"What differentiates MediBuddy Infiniti is our curated network of partner hospitals, clinics, and diagnostic centres. On Infiniti, you will find services offered by partner providers and specialist doctors that Medi Assist members have historically preferred and trusted for their medical needs," said Satish Gidugu, COO, Medi Assist.

MediBuddy Infiniti sports an exhaustive listing of OPD services including preventive care packages, health checks for chronic condition management, doctor consults and second opinion services, home healthcare, doorstep pharmacy, and other unique services such as genome mapping and instant doctor connect. Currently covering over 45 cities, the portal continues to grow in depth of offering and reach.

Primary healthcare accounts for over 70% of all medical expenditure and an average urban Indian family spends over INR 17,000/- per month on doctor consults, medicines and diagnostic labs. Medi Assist leverages its inherent strength in optimizing medical spending to help members manage their healthcare needs more efficiently. "While the discounts offered by our partner providers reduce cost of care, these services can become completely cashless if these OPD and preventive healthcare expenses are covered under a health insurance policy or a sponsored corporate wellness program administered by Medi Assist," explains Satish.
