Practo acquires enterprise healthcare analytics co Enlightiks


Practo has acquired a Bangalore based enterprise healthcare analytics platform called Enlightiks for an undisclosed amount. Enlightiks’ 50 member team will join Practo to form an analytics business unit within Practo to be headed by Enlightiks co-founder and CEO Vamsi Chandra Kasivajjala.

Enlightiks offers Querent, a business analytics platform which provides insights for real time business optimisation. The startup claims that Querent can provide accurate predictions for key business metrics.

Querent uses natural language generation, machine and deep learning to read structured and unstructured data looking at hospital information management systems and other transactional systems. With this, it can provide visuals and insights for multiple departments including operations, finance, quality, pricing and marketing for healthcare enterprises.

Enlightiks claims to have 200 clients including Apollo Sugar Clinics, Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital, Inamdar Multispecialty Hospital, Fernandez Hospitals and Eye-Q Vision. The startup was founded by Shilpa Peri, Venkatesh Pagidimarri, Dr Bas Nair, Vamsi Chandra Kasivajjala, Shaunak Joshi and Sunil Kondala in 2012.
