Razi Healthcare to open 50 clinics by Dec

Posted on: November 12, 2011

  • Hyderabad-based Razi Healthcare, backed by Singapore-based private investment institution Richard Chandler Corporation, is planning to have 100 primary healthcare clinics by the end of this year.
  • Razi, started in 2009 with a low-cost, patient-centered approach for all primary healthcare treatment services, offers doctor consultations, diagnostic services, minor surgical procedures and products from an in-house dispensary.
  • It has 50 clinics across Andhra Pradesh. In its second phase, starting January, it plans to add another 50 in Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Karnataka, NV Subba Rao, chief executive, Razi Healthcare, said.
  • To ensure that all its patients receive the same standard of medical services, Razi has opted for iON – a branded on-demand cloud computing offering from Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) – to digitise patient-care profiles that helps in easy access and more accurate treatment.
  • Each clinic costs between Rs 5 lakh and Rs 8 lakh, and employs a doctor, a pharmacist and a nurse. These are mainly company-owned.
  • So far, primary healthcare in India was mainly restricted to government hospitals. In the past three months, the acceptance of the clinics have gone up. Till date, 70,000 patients have walked into our clinics, and we expect to reach 100,000 by December end, he added.
  • Razi Healthcare is also planning to set up its clinic at gated communities and corporate houses.
