With the right vision, robust technology, lean operations and effective communication, Healthians can make the world a healthier place,” said Deepak Sahni, Founder & CEO of Healthians in a statement.
The diagnostic claims that with its foray into the UAE and Bangladesh, Healthians will be among the very few companies in the diagnostic sector to turn global.
Healthians robust technology, healthcare innovation and founder’s prior experience in medical value travel in these markets will be favourable levers for Healthians to be successful outside India. Healthians will be at the forefront to launch home care and telemedicine in the new markets, the company claims.

“Over the years, we have built a strong foundation of being a health-tech company by integrating technology into every aspect of its business so that consumers are offered maximum convenience at every stage of their interaction with the brand. Now, we look forward to providing the same convenience and a superior service experience to the people of the UAE and Bangladesh,” said Nishant Singhal, COO, Healthians.
