Curofy — an app that aims to bridge the gap in the healthcare system by providing the medical fraternity an equal footing — be it individual practitioners or corporate doctors, seems to be gaining ground.

Developed by three IITians – Nipun Goyal, Pawan Gupta and Mudit Vijayvergiya – the app is aimed at building the digital world for doctors.

Curofy, according to its co-founder Nipun Goyal, has the largest community of verified doctors numbering over one lakh from 600+ cities.

The group is understood to be using the app to discuss difficult cases, share the latest updates as also browse for jobs.

Goyal further said close to 8,600 doctors in Tamil Nadu are active users of this app, with over one-fourth of them hailing from Coimbatore.

The app not only helps provide coordinated care to patients by keeping doctors abreast of the latest medical advancements, but also provides them access to all the stakeholders in the healthcare industry.

Some of the cities that have the highest number of doctors using this app include Chennai with 3,974 doctors on Curofy, Madurai with 500 practitioners on the app, 380 physicians in Salem, 332 medicos in Trichy, 252 doctors in Vellore and 220 in Tirunelveli.

More than 5,000 cases across 400 sub-specialities are discussed every month, Goyal says.
