Elderly healthcare services sector in India is chaotic, crumbled and has limited digital connectivity. Providing proper health care for elderly parents residing in a different country has become a painful responsibility because of the distress and tensions it brings on. The Founders, Ishan Jha and Kamal Aggarwal along with Ajay noticed a rise in the number of young adults living away from home. Ishan Jha and Ajaypal Singh were also two of those many NRIs who were situated for work in distant lands away from India and parents.
UberHealth provides an online plus offline platform to help NRIs to easily purchase, manage and track healthcare services for their parents. UberHealth enables you to manage all aspects of elderly healthcare with its data driven customization for each user.
“The problem is that children are living away from home nowadays, and they need to take care of their parents. A lot of friends used to discuss that they may have to travel home to tend to their sick parents. It was difficult to find a good service to ensure that their parents are taken care of,” explained Ajay. “In fact, when we started bouncing the idea for UberHealth among people around where we worked, it was an instant hit. We immediately got queries from people when they could start using the service.”
