Digital health startup MFine on Wednesday said it has raised $48 million (about Rs 356.1 crore) in funding, co-led by Moore Strategic Ventures and BEENEXT.

The series C round also saw participation from existing investors, Stellaris Venture Partners, SBI Group Japan, SBI Ven Capital Singapore, Heritas Capital, Prime Venture Partners, Y''S Investment Pte Ltd and Alteria Capital, a statement said.

The new round of funding will help MFine invest in expanding its hospital, diagnostics and e-pharmacy network across the country and building tech-driven care delivery products for both acute and chronic conditions patients, it added.

MFine was founded in December 2017 by Ashutosh Lawania and Prasad Kompalli, who were later joined by Ajit Narayanan and Arjun Choudhary. To date it has raised about $75 million in equity and debt.

Since its inception, over three million users have used MFine services with the platform clocking over three lakh monthly transactions that include doctor consultations, diagnostic tests, e-pharmacy and in-patient procedures.

In October 2018, MFine added another layer to its virtual doctor consultations by integrating with laboratory and diagnostic services and currently, it provides its users access to more than 700 diagnostic centres across 400 cities in India.

Over one lakh users use MFine for booking diagnostic tests every month, the statement said.

MFine has more than 6,000 doctors across 35 specialties on its platform and serves users in more than 1,000 towns across India.

The company said it is growing at 15 per cent month-on-month, amidst exponential adoption of telemedicine and digital health in India since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.

"In the healthcare sector the world has changed to a new normal and we are seeing a steep growth in the adoption of digital health in India too. We will continue to invest in deep tech to transform every smartphone into a health companion for consumers and a decision support assistant to all doctors," MFine CEO and co-founder Prasad Kompalli said.

He added that the company will also look to expand its network across India and make its services available widely.
