Sanjay Singh, founder and CEO of the company has been previously associated with Paytm’s parent One97 Communications, for about two years, and with his current venture he plans to take the healthcare industry in India to an altogether new height. The platform is already being used by over 100 doctors to offer the services to the consumers.

In a country like India where there is a shortage of information on consumers and healthcare professionals, the platform by QorQl come as fresh breath of air as a data collection point and helping in improving the overall care process with AI and advanced analytics. Sudhanshu Gupta, VP, Paytm, was reportedly quoted as saying “QorQl’s consumer offerings will be integrated on Paytm’s platform so that it can reach a wider range of users.”
