Patni family backed, PlexusMD join hands with Eris Lifesciences for Saarthi


AHMEDABAD: Patni family backed startup, PlexusMD, an online networking platform that connects healthcare professionals & organisations, has joined hands with Eris Lifesciences to offer Saarthi – an Artificial Intelligence (AI) powered online learning platform for doctors in India.

Founded by IIM alumni Rohan Desai and Binal Doshi along with Kinnar Shah, Ahmedabad-based PlexusMD raised an undisclosed amount in funding from Patni family scion Arihant Patni, PE veteran Avnish Mehra and few other early-stage investors in 2016. The startup competes with other social networking ventures for medical professionals such as Curofy and DocPlexus.

Saarthi, the AI-powered learning platform endeavours to enable Indian physicians to stay connected with global developments and practice evidence-based medicine to improve patient health outcomes.

This app-based platform will be a one-stop destination to provide Continuing Medical Education (CME), medical content, medico-legal precedents, medical conference feeds, case discussions, etc. for physicians.

Saarthi, is an interactive, innovative and relevant platform to simplify learning for doctors, who continuously face time-constraints in their attempt to keep abreast with latest developments in the medical field.

“E-learning is the reality in every domain, including medicine. Saarthi will deliver precise and customized content to the enrolled doctors depending on their interests and learning requirements. The app will address two critical issues in today’s time –information overload and fake news – to ensure doctors are provided with information relevant to them,” said Rohan Desai, founder, PlexusMD.

According to Desai, the traditional learning that doctors were exposed to during their graduation and post-graduation days can now be made exciting and enjoyable experience with the use of technology, as doctors can learn from case studies using virtual and augmented reality.

Ahmedabad-based Eris Lifesciences, founded by Amit Bakshi and team in 2007, is one of the fastest growing companies within the chronic and acute categories of Indian branded formulations market. Eris Lifesciences was earlier backed by PE firm ChrysCapital, which exited in 2017 via IPO.
