Our Journey - ekincare

Our Story

Starting in 2015, with the intention to help non-resident Indians keep track of the health of family members back home, ekincare began its journey as a medical records platform. The idea was to bring order and standardization to the disparate, broken healthcare ecosystem in India with the help of AI, deep analytics and our patented technology.

Identifying a more challenging problem in the corporate health benefits and group insurance space, we pivoted to being a B2B only provider and never looked back. With services like telemedicine, pharmacy, mental health and fitness we made the natural progression to become India’s most advanced enterprise ready health benefits platform!
