According to Ritesh Mittal, “Heaps is one of the few companies that is operating in a space that is at the cusp of explosive growth in India because value-based care is going to be the way forward. It is a part of the evolutionary process of the healthcare delivery industry as we have seen in other developed economies. Our solutions with our proprietary AI-driven clinical pathways help hospitals and insurance companies measure, analyse and improve health outcomes for patients post-discharge and those suffering from chronic illnesses. As a result, unexpected re-admits are controlled, hospitals have better engagement and hence better NPS scores and insurance companies have lesser claims to settle.  

Sharing his views, Founder and CEO Dr. Suman Katragadda said “Ritesh Mittal is an industry stalwart, it gives us immense pleasure to have him onboard to lead the entire Hospital vertical. HEAPS aims to revolutionise health care delivery and payment models at a global level and offers highly-optimised, automated, and AI-based patient engagement platforms to insurers, hospitals, and corporations. With the experience Ritesh possesses, we surely aim to expand our set of offerings to hospitals and expand our network in India”.

HEAPS has built a robust platform which enables patient care management and coordination and is supported by cutting-edge machine learning and Artificial Intelligence features, customising care management plans for each patient or policyholder. In January 2022, the company had raised $ 7.45 million in its Series A funding round. HEAPS has its presence in India, through its offices situated in Mumbai, Hyderabad, and Bangalore, and is also present in USA and Singapore, through its subsidiaries and is on a rapid growth path to expand internationally.
