While working at his first health-tech startup Saurabh used to consistently get queries from consumers asking for recommendations on medication basis a symptom. Most of these consumers had chronic conditions like diabetes and a majority of the users didn’t have access to a consulting physician. “That got me thinking as to how is it I can help chronic condition patients to help them manage their disease but also provide preventive care solutions,” said Saurabh. This unique problem led to the inception of CureAssist. Soon, under the expert guidance of Dr. Ambanna—a firm believer in holistic diabetic care and is well versed in all aspects of diabetes management, the company was established.
