CareOnGo is India’s first mobile chain of branded pharmacy stores empowering users to buy medicines online, find substitutes, order generics, keep digital health records with the trust of your neighbourhood pharmacy.
 
CareOnGo seamlessly connects users with pharmacies enabling them to effortlessly buy medicines, eliminating the need and struggle to visit a local store. With a cohesive network of 700 + pharmacies, users can also choose from a wide range of healthcare products and discounted offers on a single platform without compromising on quality.
 
The CareOnGo app allows users to buy prescribed and OTC medicines as well as generic brands for affordable solutions. It also helps patients get a medical diet plan and talk to health experts. Through its 24/7 service and fast turnaround time it guarantees convenient, reliable and readily available solutions delivered to the doorstep.
 
The pharmaceutical industry has been facing two critical issues of authenticity and availability with more than 65% of the orders being partially fulfilled or cancelled. CareOnGo is aiming to solve these issues by disrupting the entire supply chain through technology.
 
Unlike other players CareOnGo, being the first e-distributor in this space, strives to help local entrepreneurs by enabling local pharmacies to buy, procure and sell through its propreitary technology. Through a separate mobile platform, the CareOnGo partner app has been specifically designed for retailers for easy processing and procurement of online orders.
 
“This will be a huge game changer in the healthcare space.” said Ms. Ritu Singh, Co-Founder CareOnGo. Our aim is to transcend from a traditional online pharmacy by disrupting the entire chain through technology. The healthcare industry in India is fragmented and multi faceted making it difficult for consumers to connect with the right solution due to multiple touch points. The same challenges are faced by local pharmacies as well.By aggregating the players in the entire supply chain, we aspire to streamline both the customer and retailer pain points and help bridge the gap.”
 
The venture has been started by IIT-IIM alumni – Aditya Kandoi, Ritu Singh and Yogesh Agarwal, with all three coming with a strong healthcare experience.
 
Mr. Yogesh Agarwal , Co-Founder further adds” With over more than 42% of medicines floating in the Indian market being fake, the counterfeit drug market is growing at an alarming rate. The key driver behind  this is the weakness in drug distribution. We aim to solve this problem by bringing more transparency and standardization in the market.”
 
The app entails user- friendly features which makes it best suitable for all age- groups, especially elderly people, with re-order and home delivery services. Today, CareOnGo is the only online pharmacy platform available 24/7 which gives you the trust and best service at the same time. It is currently operational in Delhi, Delhi-NCR, Bangalore, Hyderabad and Kolkata. At present, the app is available free of charge on Android phones to powerfully transform the traditional ways of buying medicines.
