Lybrate is an interactive healthcare technology startup, co-founded in India by Saurabh Arora, an IIT graduate and ex-Data Scientist with Facebook. The company was formed in the year June 2013 and was initially launched for doctors only. Later in January 2014 Lybrate was launched for everyone. As India's first mobile-first platform, it connects doctors to patients. Conceived with an objective of making healthcare accessible to all in the country, Lybrate was designed to assist both doctors as well as patients.

   There are two sides to Lybrate - Doctor side and Patient side - Both can be accessed as mobile apps or via online platform. 

The Patient Side of Lybrate: Users ask health questions on Lybrate's Questions & Answers platform and receive direct response from doctors of respective specialty. They ask these questions anonymously and for free. There also have an option of private-paid consultation. Patients get access to health tips that doctors share via the mobile app. They can also find doctors and book appointments. The interaction on mobile app is easy to use and very similar to chat exchange on WhatsApp.

Doctor Side of Lybrate: With about 50000 doctors on the platform, Lybrate for Doctors is a platform where doctors can 1. Grow Practice and 2. Manage Practice. Lybrate's services include helping doctors with crucial things like managing practice (via Lybrate's Practice Management Software), boosting incomes, enhancing their credibility and connecting them with patients across the world. They can store DMRs, Patient data and contacts, receive medical reports/pictures or send recorded voice (advice). With Lybrate, doctors build a strong online presence and can reach out to the patients they cannot physically reach.

Lybrate has been funded by VCs like Nexus. And is also supported by Gokul Raja Ram.
