Funny, dashing, and the outstanding PR Man of HealthPlix, Ritesh Shete, has been running a brilliant show in narrating the HealthPlix Story to everyone in the healthcare ecosystem – The Doctors, The Patients, Plixforce, the Press, the Public…
Ritesh is a force to reckon with when it comes to PR networking and finding the right opportunity at the right time.
Diving into action right from the word ‘go’
On his 2nd day at work here, Ritesh pushed HealthPlix to qualify for a very prestigious award. This award had a rigorous screening process with 757 companies competing to win the coveted award. The competition was tough but this new joiner with abundant confidence in Brand HealhtPlix, armed with his insane tenacity, successfully got HealthPlix through 4 qualifier rounds and finally impressed a highly esteemed global jury of 85 industry stalwarts to recognize this Healthcare Tech brand as NASSCOM’s League of 10 Companies as part of the Emerge Awards in 2021.
This is just one of the many Awards that HealthPlix has won – Ritesh has taken the name HealthPlix to the tech healthcare market, where it shines, and says – The leader in EMR for doctors has arrived!
In his 1 year of being a Plixian, he has shown us what a one-person army can do to drive a brand narrative and take the brand name to newer heights.
Ritesh is a seeker – He has a razor-sharp vision that relentlessly looks out for opportunities in the national as well as global forums to represent HealthPlix and generate meaningful brand collaborations and partnerships with industry vanguards!
One of his biggest achievements this year has been a special feature of HealthPlix CEO, Sandeep Gudibanda to Fortune India’s list of 40 under 40.

This story catapulted our brand name to the forefront of the Healthcare Tech landscape in the media.
While Ritesh Shete is a true #PlixForce at work (and a stickler for details), he is a happy warm person keeping meetings fun with his constant humor and quirky punchlines – always delivered with a straight face 😃
The ‘Inside Story’
A loving father of a 2-year-old toddler, and a die-hard fan of Sachin Tendulkar (he cried a river when Sachin retired, quite to the surprise of his better half ), we caught up with Ritesh for our Inside Story segment.
Surprise surprise! Here are some fun trivia we learned about our PR man!
Q: What’s the last book you read? Would you recommend it?
A: I read this book Entrepreneurship Simplified from Idea to IPO by Ashok Soota (who also happens to be an ex-client of mine)
I’d recommend this book not just to aspiring entrepreneurs but to anyone trying to discipline themselves to succeed in the increasingly competitive world, so full of ideas!
Q: Are you currently binge-watching any shows?
A: Just finished Ozarks – It kept my wife and I hooked to the fast-changing plot in every season.
Q: What would you do if you weren’t in this line of work?
A: If I had the luxury of time I’d have loved to become a Photographer!
I’m also quite an ardent F1 enthusiast – I have followed it since the David Coulthard days!
Q: What has been your favorite project or favorite thing about being a Plixian?
A: The fact that I work with some phenomenal fellow Plixians! I am absolutely thrilled to have been a part of this rocketship’s 1-10 journey. I have seen how some exceptional folks here take up responsibilities and drive a one-man army achieving what in a regular setup takes a village to do!
Q: What is your favorite thing to do in Bangalore?
A: Stepping out strictly after 10 pm to hang out with my gang of friends, not in a pub, but pretty much everywhere else in the city. I guess only Bangaloreans will know why!
Q: What was the best dinner you’ve ever had?
A: Oh this is interesting. We had this dinner with the HealthPlix Team at Sarjapur Social – It was the best dinner event, not just for the food, but also for a good helping of laughter, dance, pranks, and more. I made people (even the Plix leaders) shake a leg – It is really memorable!
