PeakMed, a Denver, Colo.-based provider of family practice medicine using an affordable monthly-membership model, raised $5.5m in funding.
The round was led by ASI Capital, LLC, through its Healthcare Fund and Income Fund.
The company intends to use the funds to expand its offering, through new LifeCenters in Colorado Springs and Denver this fall, telemedicine technology to allow secure 24/7 communication between doctors and members through a call, email, text and even video chat, vehicles for house calls and additional staff.
Founded in 2014 by Dr. Mark Tomasulo, chief medical officer, and Jon Hernandez, CEO, PeakMed aims to improve access to care by restoring the relationship between doctors and patients while decreasing the cost for individuals and employers. Members pay a flat monthly fee for unlimited doctor visits and 24-hour, seven-day-a-week access, along with other benefits.
