Blod.in | Making Blood Management More Efficient
Founded by Varun Nair, along with co-founder Adithya Vikram, Blod.in has partnered with several hospitals and blood banks across Chennai to revolutionise the healthcare sector while focusing on the haematology department.
Speaking about the development, Varun Nair, Founder of Blod.in, said,
“The healthcare sector is currently highly unstructured. Blod simplifies and digitises the day-to-day activities of the haematology department of hospitals. Implementing a simple change like Blod makes blood management more efficient and effective.”
The healthtech startup has just introduced the beta version of its flagship product, Blod+, as the first step to meeting hospitals’ haematology needs.
Blod.in is working to transform and aid the healthcare system in providing patients with the human body’s lifeline – blood. It caters to the haematology department by connecting hospitals and blood banks.
The healthtech startup is committed to positively impacting the healthcare community with innovation and aims to develop a centralised blood management system.
Commenting on the development, Vijay Pravin, Co-founder & CEO of bitsCrunch, said,
“There are some investments you make from the pocket and some you make from the heart. Blod is one such team that could save many lives by bridging the gap between technology and blood scarcity in a country like India.”
