Gurugram-based start-up Vaidam Health, India’s premier online platform for medical tourists established by two IIM graduates, has now become the subject of a case study by Ivey Business School, one of the oldest business schools in Canada whose MBA program is ranked among the world’s best.
Manish Chandra, Co-founder, Vaidam Health said, “Though Ivey Business School publishes about 350 case studies each year focusing on businesses around the world, very few actually relate to India. We are therefore extremely delighted that this prestigious B school has chosen to publish a case study on Vaidam Health for study by MBA students worldwide, and our company may be taught as a part of their curriculum. This is a huge achievement and a vindication of our business model and future growth potential considering that we started our operations hardly three years ago.”
Vaidam Health, which raised angel funding in 2016 from Singapore-based 4CE Ventures, has been certified to ISO 9001 and 27001 standards as a web-based medical tourism facilitator. It is also India’s first and only online platform for medical tourists to get accreditation from the National Accreditation Board for Hospitals & Healthcare Providers (NABH). The portal (www.vaidam.com) is a healthcare facilitator connecting foreign patients with the best accredited healthcare specialists and hospitals in India for treatment at an affordable price.
Ivey cases are highly prized by the academic community for meeting the rigorous demands of management education. They are real-world cases, typically field-based, involving actual interviews with businesses from around the world. Unlike Harvard, however, whose case studies are written by its own professors, authors of Ivey case studies can come from any business school in the world, making the works representative of what’s being used and selected by professors in the wider world.
