    Zigy.com connects patients requiring health products and services with doctors, hospitals, chemists, diagnostic labs and also provides wellness products and services, insurance, homecare services and alternative medicines.

    Patients can order medicines for home delivery of drugs and Zigy.com comes with Zigy Health Vault which allows patients to store all health related information and documents of a patient and his family members for free.

    Healthcare documents like X-rays, diagnostic results stored in Zigy Health Vault can be retrieved and used by doctors to fully understand a patient's case history before treating him, Murthy said.

    "All the healthcare data is stored on cloud with S3 grade security and 256-bit encryption," said Zigy CEO Hemanth Kumar Bhardwaj, allaying fears of data security.
