How Lattice Innovations fills the gap in healthcare by design
Three years ago, Chayan Chatterjee and his colleagues Soura Bhattacharyya and Sahil Mehta were heading the medical technology group at a Kolkata-based affordable-care provider.Their goal was to identify ways in which technology could be used to deliver high-quality, affordable care -a quest that took them to small towns and villages.
When the company decided to wind down its technology operations, the trio started out on their own, confident about the potential of the market.Thus, Lattice Innovations was born in November 2014.
The startup provides design services to healthcare firms and also creates its own products. “While working for Glocal Healthcare, we gained first-hand experience regarding the challenges and opportunities in providing consistent care in small-town India. We started Lattice Innovations with the aim of scaling up technology offerings, covering a larger audience, and helping other healthcare organizations create cost-effective healthcare solutions,“ said Chatterjee, Chief Operating Officer, Lattice Innovations. Chatterjee is an IITBombay and Wharton Business School graduate.
The team started its journey by offering design services and using the surplus money for research and development of its own products.
