Healthcare startups like Pristyn Care, Practo and Mirascare have thus created tech platforms which connect doctors, customers and hospitals at cheaper prices.

Healthcare startups are tapping on to this opportunity by creating a win-win situation for hospitals looking to optimise their OT capacities, patients looking at affordable surgical expenses with personalised medical attention as well as skilled individual surgeons looking for a stable number of monthly surgeries without added insurance and operations related overheads.
