Unofin announces ‘Covid Corridor’ - an initiative to assist those looking for oxygen beds across its network of 550+ partner hospitals in Delhi NCR, Jaipur & Chandigarh. With a mission to save 1000+ lives and assist 5000+ patients by providing free tele-consultation along with an option to finance out of pocket healthcare expense in no cost pay later options. People can call at 8955 8955 89 to check hospital bed availability in Uno partner network or to book free COVID tele-consulation.
With Delhi NCR clocking approximately 20,000 new Covid-19 cases for over 15 consecutive days, there is an acute shortage of healthcare infrastructure and information on real-time bed availability. While the state government has been trying to ramp up capacities, finding a hospital bed is a daily fight for thousands of Delhi residents.
“The second wave of this pandemic has wreaked havoc in the country with the serious scarcity of hospital beds and oxygen support. Leveraging our network of providers and technology, we are enabling access to Covid care for the consumers and our financing facility offers much needed financial support given the economic hardships for the majority population”, said Tushar Agarwal, Co-founder, Unofin, who previously worked with a healthcare VC fund, Healthquad.
"More than 60% of hospital bed requests are from panic stricken COVID patients with mild symptoms. Covid patients with mild symptoms can undergo isolation at home and do not need hospital admission. To counsel such patients, we have started offering free tele-consultation by experienced doctors.' said Soumya Arora, co-founder, Unofin, who previously worked with startups such as Rivigo and Oyorooms.
Launched in 2018, Unofin has raised US$ 1.6 million till date primarily from angels from financial services, healthcare and technology backgrounds, including Brijesh Agrawal, Cofounder Indiamart, Ashish Gupta, Partner Grant Thornton, Dr Atul Kapoor, Founder Regency Healthcare. It has launched QR code based instant, digital and contactless payment options across its partner network powered by its artificial intelligence based proprietary lending solution. It plans to fund healthcare expense including diagnostics, insurance, pharma and at-home consumption across lifecycle of a customer through its virtual credit limit.
