Heal, a California-based provider of on-demand primary healthcare services, secured $5m in funding.
Backers included Slow Ventures; March Capital; Pritzker Capital and angels, including Dr. Paul Jacobs, Qualcomm Executive Chairman; James Lassiter, founder of Overbrook Entertainment; Stephen Rader, founder of Clarity Partners; Jamie McCourt; Lionel Richie; and Mike Wortsman, former President of Univision.
The company intends to use the funds to expand operations to 15 markets over the next 12 months.
Led by Dr. Renee Dua, founder, Heal offers care with doctors who are now available in Los Angeles and San Francisco any time 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., seven days a week for anything a patient might require during a traditional office visit, including an annual physical, blood tests, specialist recommendations, prescription delivery and more.
A new advanced booking option allows patients to book a doctor for the next day after hours.
Doctors on Heal use medical technologies including an AliveCor ECG to deliver near-instant heart health analysis, CellScope otoscope to record HD-quality video inside a patient’s ear, and Electronic Medical Records (EMR) to give patients easy access to their medical history.
