Bengaluru: Onco.com, which claims to be India’s only online aggregator for cancer care, announced the completion of $7 million in series A funding by Accel, Chiratae Venture (formerly known as IDG Ventures) and Dream Incubator.
The company aims to expand its customer base and scale up operations globally. Currently over 30,000 patients from 18 countries actively use the platform. Onco.com said it will utilise the funds to build a team, scale operations and expand customer outreach within India and globally.
Through its network of oncologists, Onco.com provides personalised scientific advice to cancer patients at every stage of their journey. It manages their care by connecting them with the relevant treatment centres, doctors and labs and provides solutions to their questions and concerns, the company said in a release.
Commenting on the Series A funding, Rashie Jain, CEO and co-founder, Onco.com said, “We are solving a very critical problem, that of ‘information gap’ that every cancer patient and their family experiences. There are 3 million cancer patients getting treated in India alone and around 7 million cancer patients across Middle-east, Africa and Asia where our services are available presently. A significant number of patients struggle to get the right treatment advice or find the right doctors/hospitals."
The company has a network of over 1,500 oncologists from India and US; 500+ treatment centres (including specialty hospitals and chemo infusion centres) across India and a pan-India network of diagnostic labs with cutting edge technology. Onco.com claims it handles around 10,000 unique cancer cases month on month across different geographies.
