Dialogue, a Montreal, Canada-based virtual healthcare platform, closed a $40m round of financing.
The round was led by Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec (CDPQ) and Holtzbrinck Ventures, with participation from First Ascent Ventures, Portag3 Ventures, White Star Capital, Walter Capital and National Bank of Canada (TSX: NA).
The company will use the funds to maintain its position in Canada and continue its expansion in the European market.
Founded in 2016 by Cherif Habib, CEO, Dialogue provides companies with a virtual platform offering integrated health care services for employers to give their employees access to front-line health-care professionals using a mobile application or the internet.
The company now has over 400 clients of all sizes, including the National Bank, Lightspeed, Industrial Alliance, Air Canada Vacations, Stingray, Cirque du Soleil, Hopper and WSP.
In addition to its service offering for companies, Dialogue also provides its platform, which facilitates and increases the accuracy of triage through the use of artificial intelligence, to hospitals. A pilot project is underway with the Centre hospitalier de l’Université de Montréal (CHUM) and the technology will soon be deployed at the Hospital Berlin-Buch to support triage in its emergency rooms.
