HealthCube, a point-of-care technology-enabled diagnostics service provider, has announced the appointment of Runam Mehta as its Chief Growth Officer. Mehta will chart the course for a market-leading and beneficial technology-driven product and explore scalable business solutions across segments.
HealthCube was founded in 2015 with the vision of transforming healthcare delivery and making diagnosis simple and hassle-free. Estimates peg the point-of-care diagnostics market to grow at an 11.4% CAGR during 2020–2025 worldwide. India provides a huge market potential for this sector to progress and fulfil the healthcare demand of the large population.
Dr Ramanan Laxminarayan, Founder, HealthCube, said in a release: “Mehta comes to HealthCube with strengths in business strategy and has been at the forefront of several pioneering initiatives in her career.”
Mehta added, “My focus will be on growing HealthCube’s business as much as envisioning how India’s overall healthcare delivery model can benefit from what we do. HealthCube is doing well in terms of providing access to point-of-care diagnostics in areas where it is not accessible. I will be looking at how to scale up our offerings in the market in the times to come.”
Mehta is a strategy expert with over 14 years of experience in building businesses, and creating new avenues of healthcare delivery in India. She is a trained physiotherapist with an M.D.T. Certificate from the Sancheti Institute. She has also completed an Executive General Management Program, Business Administration and Management, from IIM Bangalore.
