Women face different health issues at different stages of life. These include thyroid and PCOD in early adulthood, or complicated conception or pregnancy, arthritis, or postmenopausal conditions in the last years of life. Since women wear multiple hats every day, they tend not to prioritize their own health issues.
“We wanted to make sure we were enabling trusted care that covered the multitude of health issues they face while allowing them to open up and share their concerns at any time so they get expert advice. to resolve them as soon as possible. This was the genesis of the Ova women’s health program and the Ova Pentacare pregnancy program,” says Khushboo Aggarwal, founder of Zyla Health, a Delhi-based AI-based healthcare management platform.
Ova Women’s Health Program, which is available for Rs 2,900 for three months, helps women suffering from thyroid, PCOS/PCOS, arthritis and post-menopausal syndrome. On another side, Ova Pentacare Pregnancy Program (covers from three months before conception until three months after giving birth) is especially helpful for mothers looking to conceive and on their pregnancy journey as it offers comprehensive care under one roof. It is also available for Rs 2,900/month.
it’s Beat Diabetes Program was launched to help women with type 1, type 2 and gestational diabetes as well as prediabetes, while its Holistic health program aims to help women focus on disease prevention, lifestyle modification, and managing any other health issues. Both programs are priced at Rs 2900 for three months.
“Our platform has helped over 1 million women so far, 60% of whom have reported diabetes, followed by the incidence of other lifestyle disorders such as PCOS/PCOD and thyroid” , says Khushboo.
According to Khushboo, Zyla’s main differentiator is that it takes a holistic and clinical approach to delivering hyper-personalized, real-time patient care programs under an experienced team of accomplished physicians and healthcare experts. Its programs are based on four pillars – medication, nutrition, physiotherapy and emotional well-being – to provide comprehensive, end-to-end patient care.
The app features an advanced AI-based chatbot that is based on over 50,000 medical protocols with input from doctors across the country. While the chatbot is designed to respond to simpler lifestyle queries from patients, more complex queries are passed algorithmically to an in-house team of doctors and paramedics.
“Our algorithms deliver medical and lifestyle interventions by considering historical and real-time patient data on diseases, diagnoses, medications, symptoms and lifestyle (D3SL approach), delivering highly personalized to the patient. This care is powered by state-of-the-art technology that can serve millions of users and respond to more than 100,000 concurrent patient queries. This allows our patients to receive the highest quality care, in real time and on demand,” adds Khushboo.
The startup has already touched the lives of over 150,000 patients across over 595 cities in India. Its app is available for both Android and iOS users. The company is also extending its reach to the overseas Indian diaspora in the US, UK, Canada, UAE and Australia. Founded in 2017, the company offers 24/7 care via chat support and support in over 10 languages.
Over the past year, Zyla has spearheaded several breast cancer and cervical cancer awareness campaigns. Apart from its female user base, more than 20 companies have also joined in these campaigns.
“This year, on Women’s Day, we intend to help women find the answer to achieve ‘work-life balance’, a constant struggle for women who manage multiple responsibilities throughout the day. The webinar is scheduled for 7 p.m. on March 8, 2022 with an experienced clinical psychologist, Dr. Pratishtha Naithani, as well as Khushboo, who will share her mantra for finding that work-life balance,” says Khushboo.
Khushboo, a female entrepreneur herself, strongly believes that for a nation to progress, its women must progress. It has a team of over 60 members, 70% of whom are female associates. Unlike most organizations, where the representation of women in leadership is disappointing, Zyla has women leading nine out of 12 teams.
