Doctor Anywhere raises $6.5m series A fund
Digital healthcare platform Doctor Anywhere raised $5.6m in a series A financing round, as it aims to make quality healthcare more accessible to the tech-savvy population. Founded in 2015 and launched late 2017, Doctor Anywhere offers its users access to healthcare providers, through video consultations on its mobile app which currently has three features—general practitioner, lactation, and medical aesthetic.
Patients who received the virtual consultation need only wait for medication and other e-documents to be delivered. One consultation costs
$20, although prescribed medicines are charged separately.
Although the telehealth market in Singapore is still in its nascent stages, the startup believes that the technology offers users a strong alternative to connect for quick advice and treatment on simple healthcare issues.
“There are a few telehealth solutions out there but what really sets us apart from other industry players is our integrated platform approach. Through this technology, we can offer care-seekers end-to-end services that accompany them throughout their health journeys,” said Lim Wai Mun of Doctor Anywhere.
The firm will use the proceeds from the funding round to continue developing its products and services. It will also be used to beef up the team and explore new business verticals.“we aspire to be a key player in personalised healthcare by boosting secure, customised and convenient access to healthcare professionals for everyone in Singapore and the region,” Mun added.
