Credihealth is a one-of-a-kind healthcare startup that focuses on providing patients a smooth hospitalization journey. The platform is not just another book doctor’s appointment website.
The entire process includes helping the patient or the patient’s family choose the best doctor and hospital for the medical issue according to doctor qualification, years of experience and convenience.
Credihealth offers a unique feature that gives the patient the convenience of getting surgery cost estimates from three different hospitals in the comfort of his home. With the help of this feature, not only does this help save time, the patient does not need to invest any effort or money.
Company CEO Ravi Virmani talking about inception of Idea
“As a former COO of Max Healthcare, I used to get inundated with frantic calls from friends and relatives seeking ‘insider’ information about the best doctor or a hospital that wouldn’t rip them off. These incidences led me to identify a real need in the healthcare industry for widely available credible, reliable, and transparent healthcare information. And eureka, Credihealth was created.”
Within few months credihealth expanded to 10 cities with more than 500 leading partnered hospitals. This includes over 25000 doctors belonging to these hospitals on our platform.

“In addition to being the only platform to focus on hospitalization and provide personal care by in-house doctors, Credihealth is the only company to have partnered with over 500 leading hospitals from across India. Credihealth focuses on spreading health awareness by being the only organization to be present in all social media giants.”
