Appoint a new COO from Silicon Valley, US and a director of operations from France
Doctor Insta recently signed up with five companies to cover their employees’ healthcare needs 24 x7. These companies are American Express, PayU, Tech Mahindra, VMart and Punj Lloyd. Taking forward its growth plans, Doctor Insta reportedly will be investing heavily in marketing and promotional activities and aims to build a robust business development team across Top eight metros of India. The Company recently launched its CEHAT (Corporate Endeavor for Health and Telemedicine) programme on the lines of Government’s Rs 1 lakh crore SEHAT (Social Endeavor for Health & Telemedicine) programme to provide ‘on demand’ health coverage.
To achieve these goals, Doctor Insta has strengthened the team by appointing Nitin Dua as COO from Silicon Valley, US. Prior to Doctor Insta, Nitin has held founding, investments and executive roles at health and high-tech startups and large organisations in India and the US leading their global business and product. In his new role, Nitin will drive the Business Development, Marketing and International Expansion of Doctor Insta along with strengthening the product and technology.
Doctor Insta also appointed Sidharth Mehta as Director, Operations from Paris, France. In his previous roles, Sidharth was working with different large companies like BP as well as startups in Europe. At Doctor Insta, Sidharth will be a part of the core team and will primarily look into the joint ventures, alliances and tie-ups for Doctor Insta for higher brand visibility and recall.
Amit Munjal, Founder and CEO of Doctor Insta said, “There are over one million doctors in India and each of them on an average does around 50 consults per day. We know that more than 70 per cent of these consults could very well be done through Doctor Insta. So, in a three-year time period, we intend to capture two per cent of this market and that translates into one million consults/day on Doctor Insta platform in India alone”.
