The Bulgarian telemedicine platform Healee received funding of EUR 800 000 from two local VC funds in order to expand its market presence to USA, Germany, Great Britain, Australia and others.
Healee offers a remote connection between doctors and patients with video connection, exchange of photos and clinical results plus chat. The platform works for both mobile and desktop devices. The company says that since the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis the platform has registered a 300% jump in online consulting sessions. The price of the consultations is determined by the medical practitioners, with the platform charging a 10% fee.
In times like these, telemedicine is essential for patients and doctors. This is the most appropriate and often the only option for people to talk to a doctor without exposing themselves and others to the risk of infection and without putting additional stress on overburdened hospitals, the company explains.
The interest in telemedicine as a service is expected to grow further after the end of the pandemic.
Healee was launched a little over one year ago and is a part of the large CampusX family.
