Maple, a Toronto, Canada-based app providing patients with 24/7 on-demand access to doctors by secure text or video for advice, diagnosis, and prescriptions, raised $4m in an additional Series A funding.
The round was led by a large private corporation with participation from the MaRS Investment Accelerator Fund, as well as Jeff Fettes, co-founder of 24-7 Intouch.
The company intends to use the funds to support its growth and expansion.
Led by Dr. Brett Belchetz, co-founder and CEO, Maple is a technology platform allowing patients to connect directly with doctors for medical care in minutes right from their smartphone or computer. Patients have the option to securely text or video chat with a Canadian licensed doctor for advice, diagnosis and treatment. Launched just over a year ago, Maple has grown its network of doctors and patients to service eight provinces and two territories across Canada.
Nearly 20,000 patients and more than 100 Canadian licensed doctors are on the platform.
