Gurugram-based Hexahealth Bags USD 4.5 million In a Seed Funding Round


Gurugram-based HexaHealth, a platform that aims to digitize in-patient care for surgeries, has raised INR 33 Cr ($4.5 Mn) in a seed funding round led by Omidyar Network India and Chiratae ventures, reported ET Health. The seed funding round also saw participation from 3one4 Capital, while healthcare professionals like Viren Shetty, Rohit MA and Rehan Khan of Merck India have come in as angel investors, as per the statement.

Hexahealth aims to build a network of hospitals across the country, bring in digital solutions for better patient care throughout the patient’s surgery life cycle, and expand its consumer base to address the information asymmetry.

Founded in 2021 by former 1MG cofounders Vikas Khanna & Ankur Gigras, and Dr Aman Priya Khanna, the startup aims to address the information gap — right hospital, affordable surgeon, insurance paperwork — when a patient chooses to go for surgery and even post-surgery — follow up consultation.

“Once a patient has been recommended surgery, they struggle with the next steps. Surgery is a stressful time for the patient when they need maximum support,” its co-founder Ankur Gigras said, adding the company aspires to be the one-stop platform to cater to a patient’s hospitalization.

The statement said about 2 crore surgeries are performed in India annually, and multiple surveys show that people’s trust in our healthcare system is decreasing, primarily driven by the lack of information, which illustrates the market opportunity.

“We are inspired by Hexahealth’s vision to become the most trusted platform to digitize surgery-related decision making and make quality and affordable hospitalization care available to millions of Indians,” Omidyar’s principal Aditya Misra said.

He pegged the market opportunity at USD 80 billion, which is 60 percent of the overall healthcare spends.
