DispatchHealth, a Denver, Colorado-based on-demand healthcare services provider, secured $30.8m in funding.
The round was led by Alta Partners and Questa Capital with participation of strategic partner US Acute Care Solutions and existing investors.
The company intends to use the funds to scale its technology-enabled healthcare delivery platform.
Founded in 2013 by two former mobile health executives, Dr. Mark Prather and Kevin Riddleberger MBA, MS, PA-C, DispatchHealth provides on-demand, on-site healthcare services delivered in the home, senior care facility or office.
The service allows a patient to explain their symptoms and request care through a mobile app, the DispatchHealth website or a phone call. A patient is then connected to a skilled emergency-trained provider supported by the technology infrastructure who is prepared to handle everything from minor illness and injury to more complex clinical cases.
The service is currently available in Denver, Boulder, Colorado Springs and Phoenix, with additional service areas to be announced in the fourth quarter of 2017.
