Vikrant Gugnani Launches a Digital Preventive Healthcare & Wellness Platform - UCare


Vikrant Gugnani, the well-known personality in the Indian Financial Services vertical, launches UCare, a digital preventive healthcare and wellness platform that helps families & individuals to stay healthy & secure – anywhere, anytime.  The newly founded entity encompasses a team of experienced professionals with well-established track records on successfully running businesses at key leadership positions and delivering value to stakeholders.



Commenting on the launch, Vikrant says, “The evolution of the nuclear family and hectic lifestyle led to the need for holistic preventive healthcare solutions to provide (self) care and assistance.

The centralized platform has been launched with an aim to empower people to take care of themselves & their loved ones’ health & safety at the touch of a button.



Additionally, UCare offers a range of services & products such as EMR, health trackers, emergency services, access to discounted diagnostics as well as doctor consultancy and 24x7 health monitoring, among others, to minimize health risks and increase employee productivity and reduce healthcare costs to cater to the needs of corporate wellness.



“We launched UCare with a vision to provide preventive healthcare, safety and wellness services for senior citizens, as well as enable working professionals to take care of themselves and their family members. With UCare, we aim to transform the way people perceive healthcare and wellness in India. The platform is equipped with services that are tailored as per the needs of the modern lifestyle. To live a life less stressed is our ultimate goal at UCare,” adds Vikrant.
