The cost of materials in a hospital constitutes around 22 - 24 % of total expenses. In such scenarios, to help hospitals to curtail their procurement costs up to 17-19 %, these players are following B2B marketplace model where they act as an aggregator charging a service fee for packing and delivering products depending on category and size.
