connected-health.eu GmbH, the Hamburg, Germany-based maker of health app LifeTime, received a seven-digit euro amount in seed round of funding.
High-Tech Gründerfonds (HTGF) joined Innovationsstarter Fonds Hamburg (IFH) and an investor group made up of doctors, lawyers and entrepreneurs, in the round.
The company intends to use the funds to grow app adoption in Germany and abroad and increase the team from seven to 15 over the next few weeks.
Founded by physician and entrepreneur Dr. Johannes Jacubeit, LifeTime provides an app that allows patients to store and manage their health data digitally and import reports or x-rays directly after medical consultations and to grant the doctor direct access to previous reports before treatment, or to vital signs records on the patient’s smartphone. This is made possible by a small piece of connective hardware for medical practices and hospitals, which is expected to be launched in mid-2016 (available on the LifeTime.eu website).
LifeTime is currently being tested in 20 Hamburg medical practices.
