” My frequent sneezing during the childhood days went unnoticed by my parents because I would stay in a hostel. This led to a serious sinus trouble which needed immediate medication; however, this situation could be avoided if my parents could track my health even when sitting miles away from me. This is the common problem in India, where a child is taken to a doctor only when he/she falls seriously ill and there is no escape but to go through a number of tests. My curiosity about this issue and a keen interest in entrepreneurship has enabled me to start Mecura through which parents can track the medical records of their children with just the click of a button i.e. the digital version of paper-based prescriptions, called Electron Medical Record (EMR). Since then, my journey with Mecura along with Aquib and Ankush has been only fetching me with knowledge and experience.” Said by Akbar Khan, Founder
