Solv, a San Francisco, CA-based service that lets users find and book a same-day doctor’s appointment at an urgent care clinic, secured $6.25m in Series A funding.
The round was led by Benchmark Capital, with participation from Theresia Gouw of Aspect Ventures and Malay Gandhi of Ensemble Labs, formerly CEO of Rock Health. As part of the funding round, Bill Gurley of Benchmark Capital will join Solv’s Board of Directors.
The company will use the funds to open up its private beta to more patients and providers as well as expand to more cities and grow its team.
Led by CEO and co-founder Heather Fernandez, Solv is a mobile-friendly service that lets people find and book a same-day doctor’s appointment at an urgent care clinic. Patients can find urgent care providers based on location and symptoms, and choose an appointment time that best fits their needs. By uploading a photo of an insurance card, Solv’s technology instantaneously reads the card and confirm coverage. If paying out-of-pocket, the platform surfaces cash prices so there are no additional surprises once a patient arrives for a visit.
Since launching its private beta in late 2016 in Dallas Fort Worth, Texas, thousands of patients have already used the technology platform.
Starting today, Solv will open its private beta to more patients and providers in Dallas Fort Worth, Texas via its website at www.solvhealth.com and will be expanding to additional cities throughout the rest of the year.
Users can also access Solv from any mobile device.
