Now Healthcare Group (NHG), a Salford Quays, UK-based provider of digital healthcare services, received a GBP£4m minority investment from health cash plan provider Medicash.
Founded in 2015 by Lee Dentith, NHG provides digital healthcare services through its brands Dr Now, Now GP and Now Pharmacy. NHG provides telehealth services and currently covers over two million people through partnerships with Cigna, Thomas Cook (internationally) and the Schools Advisory Service. Through these partnerships, NHG works with clients including Apple (Europe), IBM and Standard Life.
The new investment and partnership with Medicash will enable the business to further develop its artificial intelligence and machine learning offering through its mobile app products and its online pharmacy, enabling the faster development of auto diagnoses and medicine adherence solutions.
The company intends to further develop its private medical insurance offering and also its soon-to-be launched new NHS medicine adherence and fulfilment app, providing a potential 15 million users with chronic care conditions to free access to medical professionals through an app-based healthcare platform.
