OnCall Health, a Toronto, Canada-based platform that provides secure virtual care technology and services for healthcare providers, raised $2 million CAD ($1.5M USD) in seed funding.
The round was led by Ripple Ventures with participation from Panache Ventures, Stout Street Capital, and Maple Leaf Angels.
The company intends to use the funds to expand its operations in North America.
