PrimedeQ India is a one-stop shop for medical equipment in India, especially for small-to-medium-sized-doctor-owned hospitals (SMHs). PrimedeQ provides expertise in the used medical equipment market by bringing together buyers, sellers, and service providers on one platform – an e-Marketplace for medical equipment. PrimedeQ’ s solution, leasing high quality medical equipment to hospitals at favorable financing terms, will expand hospitals’ critical care capacity to treat COVID-19 patients by providing a pool of critical care medical equipment on rent for short-term to tide over future health emergencies.

With SAMRIDH’s support, PrimedeQ will help hospitals to temporarily expand their critical care capacity by providing streamlined access to affordable short-term equipment rentals. They will relocate and re-use equipment to augment the capacities of hospitals in tier-2/3/4 towns in Karnataka. This initiative will serve critical patients in the ICUs by increasing access to quality healthcare while removing the risk of procuring costly equipment for hospitals, allowing them to run their operations in an asset-light manner.
