MUMBAI: Daily Rounds, a mobile app that compiles case studies and quizzes for doctors, has raised a seed round of Rs 3 crore ($500,000) from venture capital firm Kae Capital, Japanese ecommerce firm Beenos Founder Teruhide Sato and startup accelerator GSF.

The app, available on the Android platform, is currently being used by over 45,000 doctors. The investment underlines the rising interest in mobile application-based healthcare and wellness startups, with services ranging from helping customers book doctor appointments to helping clinics in their internal software management.

The Bengaluru-based startup was founded by Dr Deepu Sebin, an MD in internal med icine, in January 2014.

"Doctors create a lot of clinical cases, which are real-life patient stories used to keep updated and learn. But most of them are never published," said Sebin.

Other co-founders include Nimmi Cherian, former research officer with IIT-Madras on the Aakash tablet project and Priyaank Choubey, who was earlier CTO at another startup called Spiffout.
